The Donation Box for 9-7

The weeks sure are flying by!  It seems like I just finished doing the last donation box and here it is again, time to post the donation box for 9-7.  I swear time just speeds up as I get older!

We’ve had a couple of you mention this week that you’re going to start a donation box of your own! That makes us so happy when we hear we’ve inspired even just one of you to do this! We know couponing can be a lot of work so taking some extra time to cut out an extra coupon or two to grab something you don’t necessarily need for your own family is awesome! Thanks for putting in the extra effort and thanks for telling us about it!

I took a peek at our donation total for the year and we’re a little behind schedule. This will be our first full year of doing “The Donation Box” and our goal is to have donated $7000 worth by the end of the year. (We started this in 2012 and managed well over $3500 for 6 months so we figured this was a reasonable goal for us for 2013. We’re certainly not saying it’s a reasonable goal for everyone! ) We’re a little under 4K now so we’re going to have to work just a little harder to make it to our goal.  I’m sure I’ll have a stockpile reduction/reorganization before then so hopefully we’ll make up some ground there! We shall see!

The Donation Box
If you’re new and/or not familiar with what The Donation Box is, this is a box we keep in a corner of our house that we add items to all week for a Saturday morning delivery to the local   Co-op Ministries  . Since we’ve been couponing, we have grown a nice stockpile of items so now we try to put some aside and do our small part to help others. (You can view our other delivery posts  here  ).  Other than a little extra time, there is no reason for us to pass up a free or ridiculously cheap deal… we know someone needs those items! Our boxes usually include a combination of things we purchased the current week and items from our stockpile that we have overstocked. We hope we inspire others to do the same!
Whether it’s a donation of money, time, or items.. it all matters to someone!

Do you do something similar? We’d love to read about it in the comments section!
