Garner Swap hosted by Chick-fil-A!

The Chick-fil-A in Garner at The White Oak Shopping Center has offered to host a coupon swap in December! They are going to provide some samples of their breakfast foods as well as a couple giveaways including the 2012 Chick-fil-A calendar filled with lots of FREE product coupons! I'll be there with Nancy and we plan to have a ton of fun (and share a ton of coupons)!

Date: Thursday, December 8

Time: 9:30 - 10:30ish

Location: Chick-fil-A, White Oak Shopping Center on Hwy 70 and I-40, Garner

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.

I also recommend the local swap group, Triangle Area Coupon Swap  with addition coupon swap information.

    Squiggs15: Please do join us at Moe's this evening if you are able to make it! I suppose we could say Mindy and I are hosting, because we co-scheduled it. I did post an e-mail address but it did not appear with the listing above. We plan to be there at 7:30 this evening with lots of coupons in hand. I did some major clipping this week, and my extras are now in a gallon ziploc baggie, ready for whoever might be able to use them. :-)

    Hey everyone! Is there anyone who is actually "hosting" the Durham coupon swap today? Because, I am hoping to be able to make it, I am just new at the "coupon swaps."

    Thanks!

    rayne,this is only our initial meeting, I would be available certain Saturday mornings to swap as well if others at the group are interested. We just decided after a month or more of trying to fit everyone's schedule to just make a date. I am sure there are others who would like a weekend swap too. I will keep you in mind when that topic comes up on Thursday. Hope to see a bunch there! Don't worry if you don't have a bunch to "swap", this will be a great way to get some newbies started too :)

    So glad to see a Durham swap has gotten started. I unfortunately work nights, so maybe I will be able to join if there is a weekend swap.

  • Nancy Oct 25, 2011

    I don't live in clayton but have NO problem making a delivery :) Really, not an issue at all for me linda!

  • Nanee Lion Oct 25, 2011

    Thanks Nancy. You are so kind to help others like you do. Do you live in Clayton? Don't want to put you out?Without you and Faye don't know what we would do.

    I'll let you know if DH can get it or not. I know the Clayton Area Ministries will really appreciate it and the people who receive it. With the holidays coming up, it is the least we do for the families in need of help.

    Thanks and I'll be back in touch.

    As usual, I'll be collecting donated food/toiletry items at the North Raleigh swap on Saturday. They'll be donated to Catholic Parish Outreach for their food pantry.

  • Nancy Oct 25, 2011

    Thanks Linda, if need be, if you tell me where I can drop it off (at the church?) that day, I'd be happy to collect and deliver it on your behalf, just let me know!

  • Nanee Lion Oct 25, 2011

    Nancy, I would love to attend and get the food but my sister has an appointment and needs my help. Maybe we can work out something about picking it up after the swap. Her appointment is in Smithfield at 9:45 so not sure how that will work unless I can get my DH to pick it up for me. I really love helping people and this is a small way I can do that. We'll talk closer to the swap time.

    Thanks,
    Linda
