The Donation Box for 6-21 ~ Cat’s Delight!

We had quite a mix and match assortment in the donation box for 6-21. In case you’re wondering, no… we don’t expect people to eat the cat treats. There are however, plenty of people who get assistance who have cats as companions. They’re always happy to have a little extra treat for their pets. Pet supplies are never high on our priority list of donation items of course, but we had plenty and threw some in! There were also a few odds and ends we picked up lately that we don’t need any more of. We do have plenty of personal items tucked away for us so any recent purchases went straight into the box. I do have to get myself motivated to slim down the stockpile. I have a few items like Suddenly Salad and Hamburger Helper that we want to slim down but I can’t remember for the life of me, which kinds my family liked best. Hopefully by next week I will have solved that mystery so I can make sure the ones I keep are the ones we’ll eat!

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!
