The Donation Box for 6-22 ~ Time for BBQ’s and dental hygiene!

The Donation Box for 6-22 was made up of several items that will come in handy for the bbq get-togethers on the 4th of July. At 18¢ a piece, we couldn’t pass up getting all the bbq sauce to donate plus we rotated a couple out of our stockpile. We bought the Tena underwear in one of our trips to CVS with a great coupon that made it free.  If you haven’t requested the coupons to be mailed to you already, you can go here to request a couple high value coupons that will get you free Tena products.  These are great for donating if you don’t already know someone that can use them.

There’s no greater feeling than knowing your did something to make someone’s day a little brighter.  We enjoy being able to donate items to the pantry each week, but I got a chance to help someone directly during one of my recent shopping trips! I had a warm fuzzy week!


I want to remind everyone that the people of Moore, Oklahoma are still in need of help after the devastating tornadoes.  If you are able to help with books, money, boxtops for education, or any other capacity you can get some ideas and contacts/addresses here to help the children and schools and here to help the community in general. 


Here’s what was in The Donation Box for this week..

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!
