    Thank you for your interest in hopping aboard our coupon train. Please be sure to read the next paragraph because sometimes new riders don't quite understand what the procedure involves. Make sure it's something that you really want to do and have ample time for and commitment to because it does take some time and effort on your part.

    If you're interested in joining our coupon train, please PM me with your name, mailing address, month and day of birth, and your e-mail address. It's open to anyone interested in sending and receiving manufacturers' coupons. You will need to buy a newspaper every weekend. We send our envies on Mondays after clipping coupons from Sunday's newspaper inserts. By the middle to end of the week you will receive an envelope from your sender with coupons in it. You just remove what you want, add the new coupons from Sunday's newspaper that you don't want to the coupons that were sent to you that you don't want, and send them on to your other train buddy the following Monday.

    I'm here!

    I priority mailed a box of coupons to LindaB73 today since I didn't get home from WDW until late Monday night and had to work yesterday. Of course as soon as I got home from the post office I found another HUGE envie in my mailbox.

    Linda, you should have them by Friday.

    AZECAS. Your envie is on the way. But I must apologize. My mom made a last minute trip out here last weekend so we all went out of town and I completely forgot to pick up a paper. So this week's envie is a little slim since it doesn't have any new coupons in it. Sorry!

    DisneyCP2002, been receiving your envelopes! Thanks so much!
