Overseas Military Base Coupon Donations

I have just read the specifics from the website for adopting a military base to which we can send coupons.
We can select a base or bases at a future meeting, but the rules are as follows:

1) Expired coupons are OK but no more than 2 months expired.

2) Divide the coupons into "food" and "non-food" catergories.  Note: "Food" means items consumed or eaten by humans.  Pet food is non-food but vitamins are food.

3) Put the coupons in envelops or baggies - no rubber bands or paperclips

4) Add up the total of all of the coupons in the envelop or baggie and include the total on a note enclosed with the coupons or written on the envelop.

Because they want coupons no more that 2 months expired, we should send a package once a month.  I will send the ones I got this past Thursday and let you all know where I send them and how much the postage was.

Great meeting this month.  The next meeting will be in the same room, Program Room 1B, on the first Thursday in May.  The date is May 3 and the time is 7:00 p.m.  I will have someone make sure the room is set-up and the lights on.  Kathy and Jolly will run the meeting although it didn't seem to be necessary to do anything once we got to the meeting and started to share.

I will miss you all and try to come as often as I can...I hope you will all continue to come to the meetings and share your ideas for frugal living.
