The Donation Box 9/15/12

This weeks Donation Box delivery was pretty much a stockpile of mayo and spaghetti sauce!

The great deal on mayo at Publix this week could not be passed up and we bought these specifically for the donation box. (There’s no one in this household that is going to sit with a jar and a spoon to go through this much mayo before the expiration date!)  In addition to that, we had a stockpile of Ragu from prior sales that we have not been donating because we were worried about the glass jars.  We finally remembered to ask about those while delivering the donation box last week and they said they would gladly take them.  As promised, we packed up a load for this week.


Here’s the DD 🙂 (Dylan’s Donation) for the week:

Lego Hero Factory “Stormer” build a toy



So here’s what we delivered in this weeks box…

Donation box

Miracle Whip 7

Zantac 75 3
Grape Jelly 1

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.  Even if we have 15 tubes of toothpaste already, there is still no excuse to pass up a free or ridiculously cheap deal… 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!         If you do something similar please share it in the comments. We’d like to hear about it!
