Helping out our military families

couponsfortroopsI was visiting my friend Lisa’s blog the other day and she had a post to a site that where you can help support military families overseas.  Many of the families shop at the base commissaries where prices are overpriced, yet these same families don’t have access to grocery coupons to help them save a bit.  The program Coupons for Troops allows you to send grocery coupons to families overseas.  The commissaries will even take coupons that are up to 6 months expired.  Since Lisa has turned me into an avid coupon clipper I find that I have many coupons that I throw away because they have expired, not to mention the coupons I don’t even clip because they are products I don’t use.  I can now register on this site and put my expired and unused coupons to good use.  This just proves that it’s possible to do good even when you can’t spend a lot of money.
