Upcoming coupon swaps

There are a number of blog members who swap coupons every month and now you have an 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 info here, please include 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 know of the following swaps in the next month. I have been to a swap twice with Nancy's coupon swap group and had a great time with some fabulous ladies! I will probably be at the Sept 13th swap in the 40/42 area as well.
