Giving New Life to Expired Coupons

ECOM LogoI have always hated to throw out expired coupons.  Last year I learned that military families stationed overseas can use expired coupons up to 6 months past their expiration date.  I found Expired Coupons For Overseas Military, an organization that matches up overseas families with state-side families.

Right now, ECOM has a 3+ month wait list for families to be adopted.  They would really like to hear from anyone who is serious about adopting a family to send coupons to each month.  They ask that you send out coupons every 4 to 6 weeks, and that you send coupons that are no more than 4 months past their expiration date.  In case you were not already aware, the cost of sending an envelope/package to an overseas military address is the same as sending within the US.

I have been doing this for a year or so now, and with my mom’s help, we collect enough coupons to adopt a second family.  Personally, I like knowing that even if I missed out on using a good coupon, someone else may be able to use it.

If you are interested in adopting a family, you can contact Celeste at  If you would like more information, check out their Facebook page:  Expired Coupons for Overseas Military.

Zaycon Foods Chicken Event – Taking Orders Again

If you are looking for a good price on chicken breast, check out Zaycon Foods.  They are currently taking orders in multiple areas.  For their chicken event, boneless, skinless chicken breasts are sold in 40 lb. cases.  The price for Arizona is $1.84/lb.

  • 100 % natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients
  • Comes directly from the processor and has never been frozen
  • Sold by the case — 40 lbs in each case
  • Case dimensions—18 in. wide x 12 in. deep x 7 in. tall

I’ve ordered chicken from them several times and been very happy with the results.  The breasts are moist and tender.  Since they’ve never been frozen I cut them up and freeze them when I get them home.  If 40 lbs. sounds like too much chicken at one time, consider finding someone to split a case with.  I usually split a case with my mom.

The ordering process and pick-up is easy.

  • Once you sign up, go into your account and select the location where you want to pick up your chicken.
  • Pay for the order online (via their secure site)
  • A day before the pick-up date, you will get a reminder email from them.
  • Drive over to the location of your choosing on the day/time of the pick-up.
  • You simply stay in your car, let them know who you are.
  • They will verify your order and place the appropriate items in your trunk or backseat (whatever location you specify).
