At the Michigan Coupon Clippers' "clip, swap and drop" meetings, attendees are asked to offer a donation to a charitable organization in exchange for admission. So far, the club has collected deodorant and body wash for a local women's shelter, and nonperishable and canned foods for the local food bank.

The southern chapter of the Whidbey Coupon Club clips coupons to help in the community. Hannold estimates they've saved the local food bank about $20,000 in grocery costs. "It's a low-cost or no-cost way for everyone to support food banks," she says.
