Did you know that overseas military members can use expired coupons up to six months past their expiration date?  Military families stationed overseas are often living on one income and money can be scarce. Let's support our military by showing them some coupon love!  The readers of TheKrazyCouponLady.com are coming together each month to send our unused and expired coupons overseas.  Please join us in sending in your coupons to one of our many adopted bases.
  • Overseas military members can use expired coupons up to six months past their expiration date at the base’s grocery store and department store.
  • Only send CLIPPED manufacturer coupons that are 30 days expired or less. Do NOT send store or restaurant coupons.
  • Sort coupons into Food and Non-Food categories. If humans eat it for calories (including gum, beverages, mints, and diet shakes), it is in the Food category. If humans do not eat it (toiletries, pet food, vitamins/ medicine), it is Non-Food.
  • Large volume shipments are best received in zipped baggies. Label the clipped coupons on the outside of the baggie or a piece of paper at the front.
  • For smaller shipments, you may use a standard size envelope. Make sure the envelopes are not too thick (or they run the risk of getting damaged in the automated post system). Consider using snack size zipper baggies to divide the Food and Non-Food coupons.
  • Avoid sticky notes which can tear the coupon it is attached to. Simply divide the Food and Non-Food coupons by writing on the zipped bags or a scrap piece of paper.
  • No paper clips or rubber bands— these can also catch and tear the coupons during shipment.
  • Please clip and sort coupons– this saves our volunteer time, and they get to our troops faster!
