They went out on Friday morning. So if you didn't get it today, I'd almost guarantee tomorrow. Let me know if it doesn't show.

Yeah, my bills always find me too. But I haven't lost a train yet from me to someone else. Now on the way back to me, that's another story....

Send any that you get to the next person (sbr0819). You have her address, right?

I have her address, but... okay... so then I have TWO trains here from this board. The one you just sent me, and the one that was sent to me from someone else. At one point you told me to just send it on to you... then someone else sent me their address, so I thought I was supposed to send the FIRST one to her... does this make sense? It looks like from what you said I am supposed to send them BOTH to her? If this is so, just let me know.

Thanks.

thats true, you send them both to her, from now on you always send them to her


when you are at the bottom of the list you send to teri, but now that someone joined after you, just keep sending to sbr0819

Hmmmm.....Okay, I know what happened. At the time that you were the last person on the list, I told you that you'd be sending it on to me unless another person joined. If another person joined and sent you her address, then you'd send it on to her. I end up giving my address to everyone who joins just in case they end up being the last on the list. But we have alot of people that joined after you so you will now always be sending them to sbr0819.

How many coupons do you have in both trains altogether? What I would do is send on the best and/or most recently expiring 45-50 coupons ( one stamp worth) and then keep any extra (as long as there aren't tons left) for the next train. I've started such a large number of them up at once that they should be pretty close together from now on. I hope!

I guess I will just send both coupon trains out to the same person, unless you have another suggestion. One train was from inkymommy (is that spelled right?), and the other trainw as from you. I really don't need these extra coupons, and I already weeded out the close-dated ones, added coupons to them until they were 1 ounce, and sealed them. KWIM?

I looked back and found this... now I understand how it works. See... in couponforum, when I get a train, the list of names is in the envie and I just send it to the person that is after my name IN THE ENVIE. So, now I see exactly how it works and even more so, I understand why so many envies went out at once... that was very confusing to me as well, I just didn't say anything.

THANKS!

I'm confused too, do I send mine to boxermom, or someone else. I just got the one you sent me yesterday.
