Top 7 Things to Do with Expired Coupons

- Donate them to military families who can often use coupons long after they’ve expired, usually up to six months. This is probably the best use for expired coupons. There are a couple of different programs that will help you get the coupons to military families. Keep in mind that they can only use manufacturer’s coupons not store coupons.
- Decoupage them onto small cardboard boxes for fun storage containers.
- Use Origami to turn them into piggy banks, Christmas ornaments or simple art.
- Ask the store manager if he or she will accept them anyway. Some stores, such as Bed, Bath & Beyond will do this for you.
- Give them to your kids and have them make a pretend grocery shopping list using the coupons. They can have fun, and you can teach them how to use a grocery budget wisely.
- Use whole Sunday inserts to wrap packages. This would be a cute theme idea if you had kitchen or food related gifts to wrap.
- Another use for whole Sunday inserts is to fold them into envelopes. You could then use those envelopes to hold, what else, coupons!
Anyone else have any ideas?
