When extreme couponing, you will find that one of the most common type of coupons are for hygiene items. You can walk out of the store with cases of these items for free. All it takes is for you to double a coupon and even combine it with a sale price. Just like you would to build up your own stockpile for your family.
There are several organizations which put together care packages for the troops. Simple things like toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, soap and candy might not seem like much to us, but to our troops who are living in less than ideal areas, these normal things really do mean a lot. If you need help finding one contact a recruitment office or Vets administration to get pointed in the right direction.
If you have made it so that you are couponing for a way of life, chances are you already have a stockpile of these items handy. It really would not take much effort to shop for the troops as well and if you do it right, it will all be paid for by coupons. Think about making the difference and stretching your couponing skills for a soldier that could really use it.
