Coupon Group and sending expired coupons over to the military

I've had a busy couple of days.

I started a coupon swapping group online on Yahoo groups.

It all started because I had to start using coupons again because grocery prices are just too high and getting higher. I'm sick of it.....so I started clipping and actually using the coupons....scary I know.
Then I looked at all of the ones I don't use and the ones that have expired. I don't need baby coupons etc. but I know many do so why not share them. I started thinking of friends and homeschoolers nearby that we could just meet up every once in awhile and swap the coupons. Then I thought about those that could still use them all but (as a friend said) for the price of a stamp once in awhile. So I started the yahoo group and my friend also mentioned that the military overseas could still use expired coupons for up to 6 months after the expiration date.
I think that's the greatest thing and its so simple really.

So, here is some info for all of you.

The Yahoo group I started up: The_Coupon_Group - just let me know that you read about it here on the blog so that I accept you!
The two sites I found, check them both out as they have valuable information on them and it should be read first before just sending out coupons.

OCP - Overseas Coupon Project - Military Base Adoption Program - In operation for 17 years.

Grocery SavingTips Military Family Coupon Project  

I feel better already clipping coupons knowing that if I don't use them others can until they expire and I can help our military and their families overseas even after they do. :-)

On another subject: Just when I fix three things on this page and get them working something else stops working......ugh...now my recent updates aren't updating....
