If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then you'll remember that a few days ago I tweeted to remind you that several coupons would soon be expiring.

Of course I normally don't use all of my coupons and I usually do have a good handful that expire before I use them all.

Before you throw those expired coupons away, STOP and read this!  This is way cool!

Did you know that military families can use expired coupons for another six months after they expire?  That is so awesome!

I did some research and found a website solely dedicated to getting those expired coupons to the soldiers.

I found the Oversees Coupon Program (OCP) founded back in 1992 as a "small idea", but soon bloomed into something much larger.

Their website provides all the necessary information, as well as other useful tips and hints on sending your expired coupons to those military families.

Now I don't feel so guilty when I let coupons expire...I know that they can go to really good use overseas!
