Community Service Project

Every month, Madame Deals will have some sort of community service project. This month we have chosen to collect expired coupons. Why expired coupons?

It turns out that overseas military families can use expired coupons! Why should those coupons go in the trash when we can send them to people who could really use them? The overseas commissaries will allow military families to use expired manufactures coupons for six months past the printed expiration date. Only manufactures coupons can be accepted. No internet printable coupons can be sent.

Tips for making this a great project:

  • Cut coupons out. This will make it easier for them and less weight for shipping fees!
  • Sort coupons into two categories; food items and non-food items.
  • Place categorized coupons into Ziploc bags labeled with Food or Non-food.
  • Send only coupons that are expired by two months. It takes time for the coupons to get to where they are going!

We have decided to adopt a base through http://www.ocpnet.org/ . We looked over the list of bases in need and decided to adopt U.S. Navy Sigonella, Sicily!

Here is the address:

Madame Deals plans on having drop boxes available at local businesses. We will update you soon on the locations. If you are not a local please feel free to send your expired coupons to the above address! When you do, please let us know that you sent some so we can thank you!
