Please bring non-expired coupons you do not want or need in an envelope or baggie; it's best if they are already clipped.

You may also bring coupons that have already expired, again preferably already cut out of the inserts, in a separate bag or envelope so they may be donated to the military.

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 if at all possible. It really helps to move the swap along if folks are not waiting for you to go through your coupons and cut them out at the table.
* You don't need to sort them by product type unless you really want to
* The group usually sits 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, couponers often 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 additional coupon swap information.

    Faye, the McDonalds swap on Millbrook will be moving to the Lake Boone Trail location and changing to an afternoon time starting with the Septmber swap. The Cary swap will stay as it is at 9:30am. I'll post the exact time and address next week and update the calendar in the yahoo coupon group.

    Faye, will you please add a new coupon swap? We are going to have one at Brier Creek this Sunday the 19th at 7pm at the Starbucks. We are going to try once a month on Sunday evenings.
    Thanks!
