Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted October 3, 2011
Updated October 4, 2011

There are a number of blog members who swap coupons every month and here is the official place to post your swap details each week!

 If you are attending a coupon swap for the first time, here are some swap basics:

  • Bring your coupons already cut out in an envelope.
  • You don't need to sort them by product type unless you really want to
  • The group usually site in a circle and passes around the envelopes to the person to the right. Take the coupons you want out and put the rest back in to pass on to the next person.
  • Once you get your envelope back, you know you have been through all the coupons.
  • In really large groups, usually folks sit in groups of 5 to 8 people to swap

If you are hosting a swap and wish to include the information here, please post the following details:

  • Date of swap
  • Time of swap
  • Location of swap including address
  • Host contact info to RSVP or ask questions. An e-mail address is fine - I don't suggest including your phone number on a public board. You may want to create a new free e-mail just for swapping from somewhere like Yahoo or Gmail.

Here are the swaps that are currently scheduled. I have been to a few swaps with Nancy's coupon swap group and had a great time with some fabulous ladies!

    I sure hope I can make it next Tuesday night! I've been saving up swap coupons for months and haven't been able to go. If I've got hubby's approval, I'm there!
