Hi, Ive seen postings about doing this elsewhere but not on city-data. Would anybody be interested in participating in a coupon train?

Incase you havent heard of this:
A coupon train is a great way to get coupons you can use and pass along the ones you can't use.


Once the list has the set number of passengers, the Conductor will make up an envie of coupons and send them out to the first person on the train list, with an enclosed list of all the other passengers. When the first person on the train receives the envie, they will take out all the coupons they think they can use, and take out any expired coupons, or soon to expire coupons. Then they add any coupons they can't use and send it off to the next person after them. This continues until the last person on the train sends it back to the conductor and the train is complete. Usually then the conductor will ask if all the passengers would like to go around again

We did that while my hubby was in the service...but we all saw each other...I'm thinking that with the cost of postage, and a trip to the post office, that it might eat up the savings you would get from the coupons.

The vast majority of coupons for the supermarket are for items that are not very frugal in the first place.
