The end of the month is nigh upon us; August 31 is TODAY, which means we can look forward to some new coupons popping up in the changing of the (coupon) guard. It also means that many of your favorite coupons, you know, the ones you've been meaning to print but haven't gotten round to, are going away.

I moved all the coupons that are still valid but expire on 9/5/11 to the "Use It or Lose It" section in the front of my folder. While I was sifting through, I discovered a Target Jif free product coupon that expires on 8/31/11....yikes...gotta redeem that asap. There is nothing more aggravating than letting a free or very high value coupon expire because you weren't paying attention. (I confess, it's happened to me more than once!)
