  1. 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.
  2. Decoupage them onto small cardboard boxes for fun storage containers.
  3. Use Origami to turn them into piggy banks, Christmas ornaments or simple art.
  4. Ask the store manager if he or she will accept them anyway. Some stores, such as Bed, Bath & Beyond will do this for you.
  5. 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.
  6. Use whole Sunday inserts to wrap packages. This would be a cute theme idea if you had kitchen or food related gifts to wrap.
  7. 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?

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
