Tip of the day—Swapping Coupons

If you aren’t able to attend tonight’s Coupon Swap at Wallace Memorial Church, you can still swap coupons. Below are a few ideas:

  • We have a lady at church who shares coupons with 3 other friends.  They each get a couple of newspapers each week, cut out what they want, and then pass the coupons around to the other two gals.  When they finish with cutting what they want, they donate the rest to the coupon ministry program at our church.
  • Ask friends to keep an eye out for coupons for products that you buy most often and do the same for them.  I have a friend who I meet at Chick-fil-a relatively often.  Our daughters play together, and we swap coupons.  When she needed Pediasure coupons for her daughter, I was more than happy to  print a few from my computer for her.  She has done the same for hot dog coupons for me that I needed for the church.
  • Start a formal coupon swap at your school, local community center, library, or house of worship.  Start small with a box that has labeled tabs—canned foods, cleaning supplies, frozen foods.  If you want to make the swap more formal, set up a coupon meet like the one that will take place tonight at Wallace Memorial.
  • Meet up with a friend a week or so before the end of the month.  Clean out your coupon binders together and share coupons with each other to use before they expire.
