Coupon swaps Monday and Tuesday!

Posted January 2, 2011

Remember that coupon swap we talked about a few weeks ago? Well, our Coupon Swap Coordinator in Chief, Nancy, has organized TWO swaps for this coming week. Honestly, I meant to post this on Thursday when she sent out the dates and times, but, I forgot. So I am really sorry for the short notice - totally my fault.

Here is the e-mail Nancy sent to those who contacted her when we first started talking about a swap. If you can make it to either swap, just send her a quick e-mail at to let her know you can come.

Thanks to Nancy for setting these up! If you can't make it this time, there will be other swaps and we will post them here on the blog.

Here's her message with the details:

"Just wanted to let you know that in order to get started, I've come up with two dates/times to have our first two coupon swaps

As discussed with some of you, knowing that some work during the day and some have children and need to address those concerns, our first two coupon swap dates will be held at the McDonald's in Fuquay Varina.

The address is:
1409 N Main St
Fuquay Varina, NC 27526

Our first swap will be January 3rd @ 10:30am

Our second swap will be January 4th @ 7:00 pm

The reason I chose the location is due to the play area for children primarily, so please go inside the play area when you arrive. At least, even without children, we'll know where to find each other! The times were 'off' hours so that the location is not hitting peak lunch or dinner times and less likely to be full of customers.

We can determine at those meetings when/where is the best date/time/location for the following month. I'll bring a print out of the coupon insert schedule so we know when to take advantage of the Proctor & Gamble coupon usage since those only come out once a month and are short dated, trading them would need to happen rather quickly after the insert arrives to maximize their usefulness.

Please plan on bringing friends and family too! I know I hope to bring a friend of mine with me - I plan to be at both swaps as well so that we can organize a plan for next month with both groups. As to location for future swaps, bring ideas! We do not have to always stay in Fuquay, as I know there are those of you from various points around our area and rotating locations would be great to make it easier to have more participate! I have no problem driving to different towns and will even be happy to offer transportation to others from FV who want to go to another that is not here in FV
Thanks again for the interest! Please let me know if you plan to attend, respond via email! Hope to see you at one or both!

    Ducklab - there you go, another big area I'm sure there are folks out that way that would like to get together!

    Total - yes, it was a small mountain :) (reminder to self: need bigger table...)

    Great fun and yes, the time really disappeared didn't it? I say that all the time anyway, being on the downhill slide of life LOL

    Ducklab - if anyone emails me about Wake Forest area interest, I'll have to let you know somehow!

    Anyone want to do one in Wake Forest?

    So much fun!!! Met with three others today at McD's and boy was there a pile of coupons to be shared - mercy! We had so many good laughs and each came away with some great coupons!

    Will email you later Faye with our scheduled location/date/time for later this month, since P&G will be coming out mid month - strange for P&G but we're rolling with that :)

    All the coupons we didn't need between us are ready for sharing tomorrow night if anyone can make it! Just email me and let me know to look for you :)

    Love this! Great fun and loved meeting everyone!!

    Here are four locations used for a dedicated coupon group I used to attend: preschool, fire station, restaurant(everyone had to buy lunch before the meeting started), Kroger (got to shop before going home!)
