You know, I had posted to Star the other day in another thread about emailing her about coupon meetups and got to thinking about many of you who also do the couponing here so I thought I would also share it here as well. When I lived in NC there were "coupon swap meets". If you've never heard of them it's where people meet at a location (in this particular case they had picked an Arby's). Everyone brought an envelope (what ever type or size) of their unwanted coupons (still in date). You'd sit around a table and pass the envelope. How it works is that I would pass my envelope to the person on my right or left (it seemed to be decided by the members that started the particular meet up originally and sadly due to favoritism of their friends and wanting them to get certain coupons first before "outsiders") and then they would pull out the coupons they wanted and pass it along. Sometimes members would bring along a "goodie", like chocolate or something that they got from a coupon freebie or nearly free to share with the group. It was a nice touch. The area I was in had several of these as the town was rather large and unfortunately/fortunately (?) there was an awful lot of couponers (so you could go to several different swaps as they were on different days), which also made getting the good deals a bit difficult because first thing early they'd be out buying up greedily clearing shelves of all products and others couldn't get them. Like on extreme couponing show, these people where like that and bragged about it giving other couponers a bad name as well in how they conducted business with the stores and the coupons. In other places I've been I have not experienced this level, thankfully. There hasn't seemed to be such an interest in couponing to anything close to this level. So if you have this around your area, look online on some of the coupon boards (if you know them), look on craigslist (sometimes they are posted there too), or in the paper. If not, think about starting one of your own and see if there is an interest out there. You can also post the opportunity (if there isn't one listes) to the message boards for coupons. I think susiestar, hound, and Star may know of some, or I do. Hope this helps anyone.
