Expiring coupons...

Just wanted to remind everyone that there are a TON of coupons expiring 8/30 and 8/31! So now would be a good time to go through your binder and make a list of any you want to be sure to use before they expire. Remember, do not use the coupons just because they are expiring! If they expire, it's ok, there will be another coupon just like it soon! Lol. However, if there is something that you need to get anyway and have a coupon for it that is expiring, then definitely use one!

On the 31st, it will be a good idea to go through your binder and pull out all of the expiring coupons that you will not be using. You can either toss them or there's even a really great program where you can donate expired coupons to military families overseas! They are allowed to use coupons up to 6 months past the expiration date! For more information on donating your coupons, click HERE. Of course, they will also take any coupons that aren't expired that you know you won't use.

I am going to get working on a list of coupons by expiration date. I know PYP keeps a GREAT running list of coupons by insert date for Idaho (HERE), but it would be nice to have one by expiration date so that we would always know which coupons we have that are expiring and so could choose to use them, rather then just forgetting about them until it's too late.

My binder is definitely going to slim down a lot after pulling all of the coupons this month! Lol.
