Find other people in your area, meetings, gatherings, friends, etc who use coupons (or maybe not) and trade for the coupons that you would use! I am always coming across coupons that I won’t use, but my mom will. My friend will. I just keep a handy reference list in a little notebook to keep track of who is looking for what and give them the the coupons next time I see them. They do the same for me! Sweeet!
- Neighbors and Friends
Sometimes even BETTER than trading is finding people who don’t even use their coupons. They will just GIVE them to you. Yay!
- Recycle Bins
Okay, be careful here! I am not talking about “dumpster diving” here. You’d be amazed the businesses that recycle their newspapers inserts. It might even be YOUR work area that this happens at. All you have to do is check it out.
- Buy Online
There are places online that sell clipped coupons or full inserts. You just have to know where to look. Be careful with some sales! I never buy from someone without a good reference check. If the deal looks too good to be true, it usually is just that.
- Share Coupons
It's always great to share the wealth of coupons with even MORE people and even expired coupons can benefit others. Military bases overseas have stores called Commissaries and these overseas Commissaries accept expired coupons up to 6 months past the expiration date! This is a great way to recycle your expired coupons in a way that benefits more people.
