If you have the extra time, and want to do something for your community, set up a coupon file for a local laundromat (with the owner's approval) or retirement home.
Ask at the local library if you can start a coupon exchange. Coupons are kept in subject envelopes. When you bring yours in, underline or highlight the expiration date.

So how does coupon swap work? Is it something you have to use the US Mail to do? It sounds interesting but I am trying to see the big picture here. Thanks.

I have seen it done several ways. You could start a coupon box at a location you frequent like; work, gym, childcare location, etc. You would donate unused coupons and then take what you like or need and so does everyone else who participates. Should be one-for-one. Another way you could do it would be to get a group of people together and post who has what available either through a message board or email chain and snail mail each other coupons once you see someone who has what you need/want.
Is anyone interested in joining a coupon swap group in Springfield, Missouri?
We have a day and evening group.
