Military can use expired and unwanted coupons



What do you do with your expired or unwanted coupons? Your trash may be someone else’s treasure. Military servicemen and women can use expired coupons for up to six months at overseas commissaries or food stores.

On NewsChannel 5 we showcased an Elyria post of the American Legion Ladies Auxillary. The women are spending 6-thousand hours a year clipping coupons. They collect them from friends and neighbors and then clip and count them. All to give back to members of the military.
