Expired coupons can be used on military bases for up to six months past their expiration date. If you have unused coupons, donate them through Coupon Cabin’s Coupons for Troops program. Visit CouponCabin.com for more information.

2.  Sign up for alerts. Follow coupon websites on Twitter to get up-to-the-minute alerts on deals. This way, you’ll never miss out on a good bargain. Some accounts worth following are @freeshippingorg and @RetailMeNot.

3. Attend a workshop. Coupons can be more complicated than meets the eye. Attend a workshop to learn how to use them effectively so that you can maximize savings. Look online for local listings. Just type the words “coupon workshops” in your search engine’s browser. Many coupon bloggers host workshops.
