The Donation Box for 7-13
There’s not a lot to talk about this week. I wish we had more food to add to the donation box for 7-13 but it was another pretty slow shopping week for us. We have a good assortment of school supplies adding up that we haven’t put in the box yet. We’ll have a donation box concentrating on back to school supplies at a later date as we accumulate more and also figure out what we’ll need for our boys.
Have y’all checked out the office supply store deals that have been popping up lately? From now til the the start of the school year there are awesome deals (without coupons) at Staple, Office Max, and Office Depot! There is a high demand for school supply donations as children are preparing for the new school year so if you can take advantage of the penny items and store reward deals, there are always people that need these items even if you don’t! We started our collection with last weeks OfficeMax trip and will be adding school supplies to the donation box in the coming weeks.
Here’s what was in The Donation Box for this week..
2 Crest Mouthwash
1 Bayer Aspirin
2 Brach’s Candy
1 Tena Underwear
|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!|
