In July of 2015 I decided to stop throwing away my expired coupons and send them overseas to a military base so that they could be distributed in the commissary there. In overseas military commissaries expired coupons are good six months beyond their expiration date.
I created a page, Overseas Military Coupon Program, explained everything and asked my readers to please consider sending their expired coupons to me so I could cut, sort, bag and mail them off to Plucking Of My Heartstrings’ adopted military base in Yokosuka, Japan.
In 2015 Plucking Of My Heartstrings sent $8,004.95 worth of expired coupons to Yokosuka, Japan. In 2016 the total was $10,886.20.
Expired coupons were sent out in September, October, and December. I had taken a hiatus from blogging but did send out the coupons.
September – $14,235.50
October – $6,421.00
December – $12,042.00
So what was the total of coupons sent in 2017? $50,992.40!! How awesome is that!! THANK YOU SO MUCH to all who donated.
Till next year….
