Coupons for the Troops

Are you a couponer?  Do you get the Sunday paper?  Would you like to help the troops overseas?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have a project for you! 

It's pretty easy to find and use coupons here in the States.  It's not that easy for families living overseas on military bases.  They don't have the access to local papers like we do.  However, the military commissaries overseas do take coupons that are expired up to 6 months past their expiration date.  So, those coupons that are useless to you are invaluable to someone else. 

The holidays are now upon us.  What a perfect time to help someone else.  Especially when it is a family that has sacrificed everything for us, our freedom, and our country!  Check out these sites for information on how to send your coupons to those in need:

This would be such a great project for girl scouts or boy scouts, church groups, or any groups looking for a way to help!  Spread the word!


  1. Thanks for mentioning CouponsToTroops - if anyone would like for us to match them up with an overseas family so they can mail their coupons directly to them - just email us at or check out our Facebook page for more info -
