Manufacturers coupons that can help save money on groceries, cleaning supplies, pet food, baby care and more. So often though, many of the printed coupons go to waste. Here are a few ideas for sharing your coupon surplus.
Family and friends are a great choice for sharing your extra coupons because so often you already have an idea of what types of things they may be shopping for. Even if you are mailing them, the savings available from the enclosed coupons can far outweigh the price of a stamp.
