My family is stationed overseas in Korea. Does anyone know what state I should look for coupons in or will the military take any coupon?

Your commissary should accept all coupons that aren't store coupons. So no Target specific coupons, for example. But the regular coupons that are in the newspaper flyers (which tend to be national) should work no matter what. You can check to see if your commissary accepts them (which they should, from what I've read). You might also be able to get free coupons by asking there too. I know a lot of people send in expired coupons (which you guys can use for 3mos past the expiration date) to different military bases for you guys to use. Good luck!

Thanks. We have a little desk in the front with a bunch of coupons. I was thinking of participating in the coupon mailing groups and was worried that the commissary might not accept all the ones I found. THANK YOU AGAIN!

I keep a coupon binder sort of like the one that was shown earlier in the thread. One thing I do differently is to use photo page inserts instead of baseball card holders. There are only 2 per page but the pockets are much bigger than the baseball card holder pockets so I don't have to fold/smash coupons in there. The pages are also very filmy so they are not as bulky as baseball card protectors, so they seem to take up less room.

I use an excel spreadsheet for my pricebook so it is easy to change prices and print and put in there behind the coupon pages.
