Coupon swap!

I e-mail a dozen or so local coupon moms to invite them to swap coupons with me. I have TONS of coupons that end up going to waste because it maybe for stuff I don't use or need. I do give my expired coupons to the Overseas Coupon Program but I rather see a local couponing mom get their hands on the coupons before they expire.

So here's what I was originally thinking.

If you're interested in meeting up to trade coupons feel free to e-mail me and we can set up a date and time to meet up. I'm not available the 2nd Tuesdays of each month since I'm the PTO Vice-President at my daughter's middle school. Oh, and I'm not available on Friday afternoons because I volunteer in one of my son's classes at the elementary school between 1 PM and 3 PM. I'm available Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays anytime between 9 AM and 2 PM; Tuesdays between 9 AM and noon.

Well Lori from Northwest Coupon Mom replied with even a BETTER suggestion.

If you have people that would like to do a Saturday evening or Sunday once a month that might be fun. We could have a coupon swap. You could hold it in a restaurant that has a meeting room. Rosey's has a little room, that would be fun on a Sunday afternoon.

So how about it folks? Let's get together once a month and trade coupons. I've never been to Rosy's but I do know that KNDU is selling $50 gift certificates for 1/2 off (only 39 left as of this post).

Contact me and we'll see about setting up a coupon swap!

Where to get coupons

BEST PLACE: The Sunday newspaper!

In stores:

Blinkies – Found on various store aisles these little machines spit out coupons as you pull them out. Most blinkies have little lights that blink hence the name.

Catalinas – Receipt-like coupons printed at the register. Not all stores have Catalinas (such as WinCo). These are typically NOT printed on the back of the register receipt.

Hang/Wine Tags – Found around the neck of a bottle with a little piece of string or rubber band.

Peelies – Coupons found on certain products that peel away from the product.

Tearpads – Coupons on a tear away pad. Typically found in a display and not directly on the product.

Other ways:

Home mailers - sign up for products online or even contact a company to either complain or complement their products. Click here for a blog with over 200 links to companies that will mail you coupons!

Internet coupons - There are many places online that you can print coupons from. See links below for printable online coupons.

Magazines – Pretty much all magazines will have coupons in it. Better Homes & Gardens, Sunset, Parenting, Working Mother are a few. The BEST magazine with coupons is All You magazine.
