As of Saturday, two months of my Proctor and Gamble coupons expired. It inspired me to leaf through my binder and pull out all of the expired coupons. I’m not really into clipping coupons until/unless I need them, so had a TON ($989.99) from the last 3 months that were gathered. Some of the coupons were ones I just let slip through the cracks… but if you’ve read my posts about couponing before, you’ll know that I don’t do that often. Some were just for items I never use.
You may be scratching your head at this point and wondering why I am deranged enough to tally the dollar value of the coupons I can’t use anymore. That’s because they are neatly clipped, separated, and put into labeled sandwich baggies so I can mail them out to the Navy base in Yokota, Japan. Turns out, on overseas military bases, the PX and Commissary will allow service members (and families) overseas to use manufacturers coupons for up to 6 months past their expiration dates.
So, if you don’t want to throw out your thousand dollars of expired coupons, send them overseas.
