Default Trading for coupons you need

Trade coupons that you can't use, for coupons that you can. Avoid using a coupon just because it exists. If it isn't a great deal and isn't needed, trade it to get a particular coupon you need. Remember, all coupons are "trade-able"! Someone who doesn't cook might want your Mazzios in trade for $2 off of Pampers.

Trade to get some really great ones!

-locally by having your own get together, at Church,work, over coffee or join a coupon train (set up your own).

-with people in other states - different locations get different discount coupons! (some traders on that link will accept Forever postage stamps in trade for the coupons you need)

Default Coupon Trains are a fun way to trade!

Coupon Train

Start with a map (guidelines you want for your train). The conductor puts the map and their unneeded coupons into an envelope and give it to a friend who wants to trade coupons. The friend takes out what she wants and puts back at least the same number of coupons and passes it to the next person. It continues down the track this way. (The train must leave within 2 days of arriving at each home.) 5-6 people (including yourself) on the train. When it gets to the 6th person that person sends it to the conductor and it begins the same trip over again.

When there are those that are expired the person who has it that day pulls them out to send to the overseas military base expired coupon project. (Overseas military bases with commissaries can use expired coupons for up to 6 months past the printed date. This helps keep the families and little ones from being hungry.)
