The Donation Box for Easter Dinner

The donation box had some nice items just in time for Easter dinner and Easter baskets. We got such a great deal with all the cake mix from our Publix shopping trip and the candy from our CVS Shopping Trip that we’ve provided a great deal of sweet treats. We thought it only fitting to also throw in the toothbrushes from our Dollar Tree trip!

We also put an assortment of mashed potato sides in the donation box to go along with the Easter dinner theme and some Bayer for the clean up headache!  Hopefully this weeks donation box will make a nice addition to some family dinners!

If you’re new and/or not familiar with what our 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’ve 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 spending a little extra time, there is no reason for us to pass up a free or ridiculously cheap deal… we know someone needs them! Our boxes usually include a combination of things we purchased the current week and those items we realize we have too much of!
