How are the trains going, ladies? Any group that needs me to start up an extra for them? I have coupons burning a hole in my recipe box.

I think I may have overloaded my group with them. We may be up to 7 now and I'm starting a few more tonight. So we're probably ok, lol.

Lady, quit starting them! That's how I always got rid of my extra coupons. Now what will I do with all my extras?

I have an idea! Go to the grocery store and stalk people who don't use coupons. Whenever someone picks up an item, scream, "I have a coupon for that!!!" and force them to take it. They'll LOVE it. Trust me.

Is this a bad time to mention I have done that? Well maybe not so much the stalking, screaming or forcing parts but I have given coupons if I notice something in their cart that I have one for that I'm not planning on using.

I've done that too. I don't actually scream it, just say it with enthusiasm. There was a woman in Walmart last month who was buying a big Huggies box. I gave her my (2) $2 Huggies coupons for Publix because neither store I go to even had the size 3's. The coupons were expiring in a few days and I knew they had the size 6's there that she was buying. It didn't take much coaxing to get her to take them. And I was happy that someone was using such primo coupons that I was unable to use. Stupid Publix.

How many trains are going on #2? I got the one April started (and I was slow sending it out again...my bad!), but that's the only one I'm aware of.

I don't remember if I started up another for your group. But I will tomorrow. I'll start it with lilac_city_mommy. And then either April or I will start up another a little while after that too.

*ETA: On second thought, I'm already sending you those coupons from Sunday's paper so I'll make that into a train too. So you and Katy will both get one next week.

I've yet to receive one, but the person before has been a little busy having a baby and all... so she's forgiven.

Do you know how many your group has? You want me to send you a new one?

I only know of one going with our group, and I recently gave it to Amy.

I haven't gotten one either, but I'm at the top of the list, so that's kind of to be expected. Where's the #4 train, ladies?

We have at least two, Tonya. I sent one to Suzanne ... probably a week ago.

I've been meaning to start another on for my group, but I've been to lazy this past week. I'm going to get on together this weekend.

I thought you had said that two were started before I started one, so I guess three... I can start another one. I have some coupies that I know that she wants anyway, so I'll do them together. Save on postage that way. hehe.

I'm at the top, too, so I guess I should expect it. I just know it's going to come to me while I'm not buying anything (next month) LOL.

Tonya, your group has either two or three. Did the one you just gave to Amy come from the person before you or from me? I don't recall if I started one with you or not. I really should keep track of it all. If it came from lttle one, you have two. If me, you have three. Suzanne started the first one.
