The Donation Box for 11-23 ~ It’s A Good Day


The Donation Box for 11-23 Plus a Great Visit!

We had an awesome day today! Not only did we deliver the donation box for 11-23 to the co-op (pictured in the two pics below) but we took several additional bags of groceries from our stockpile and a gas card to a family we met through the co-operative ministries who are working their way out of hard times.  We truly enjoyed our visit with this family today and we may even see them begin some couponing adventures soon!  Their ethics and ability to look at the bright side of an unfortunate situation was uplifting and they were truly an inspiration. It was such a great feeling! We feel blessed to help a family who we know will pay it forward once they are back on their feet! They were already discussing what they could take to another lady that could use some help. 

We hope those of you who have started donating some of the great deals you’ve received while couponing get the satisfaction of knowing that you truly are helping real people.  Every little bit helps.  For those of you who are in a good financial position, consider adopting a family for the holidays! It will be a gift to you as well!

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!
