    the Vancouver group started out small..4-8 people, but now it's huge..20-30 people.

    What they do is, everyone brings their extra coupons to share, (lots!); and people start plunking down envelopes, file folders, shoeboxes, etc., etc., on the tables, and everyone takes a turn looking through everyone else's 'coupon stash', and pulling the coupons they want from it. (only bring your 'giveaway' coupons!)

    The unofficial 'rule' is 'be fair'; if there's 20 copies of a coupon you want, (and of course, now there's close to 20 people there), only take one or 2, and check again later to see if you can get a few more.......that way everyone has a chance to get some great coupons!

    As well, as people start to know each other, and their 'coupon wants/needs' , they'll start to bring specific coupons to give to specific people, ie. if you need lots of Pamper coupons, and I have tons; I'll bring them for you.

    If you take a peek on the Calgary coupon forum, (go to Local, then Alberta, then Calgary ); you'll see they chat back & forth quite a bit, to find out in advance who is looking for specific coupons,.........as people who have large coupon 'stashes' won't necessarily drag out everything, if they don't know what others specifically are looking for.

    hope this helps.

    I am just going to bring all my coupons that I am willing to part with and hope that I find some that I want. I heard other group (Vancouver) has a free for all. You bring coupons that you don't want and put on table and everyone can pick and choose. Not sure how good this works???? just an idea
    That's basically the way it goes...just bring ones that you are willing to part with and everyone has a look at what everyone else has and pull out a couple of what you might like...at the end...if there are coups left over that nobody wants we bring them to LD for the staff to use.

    After meeting a couple times, you get to know who would like/want what, and if I have extras I will save and bring them next meeting.

    That is just the easiest...of course if you know ahead of time what people may be looking for it's always helpful..

    I, for example, would love to get my hands on some of the $1off wub2 V8 juices (exp. May 31)...

    Anyway..a list is not a 'must' but can be helpful!!

    Well...it was a small group tonight...but welcomed a new face and welcomed back bborick18!! Chris...didn't see you...hope you didn't come and miss us?! We were in one of the 'meeting rooms' when you first walk in, so it would be hard to miss us!!
