The Donation Box for 8-6 2014
We’ve gotten a little behind on our weekly donations. Everything has seemed so hectic lately and I did get a little disorganized with everything piled on the dining room table for a while. We finally did the donation box for 8-6 and will hopefully get a second one this weekend since we’ve skipped a few weekends. We should have plenty for a second box this week. If only there were two of me to get it all done. (Boy, wouldn’t that be Tommy’s nightmare to have to keep two of me happy!) Anyway, I do love this perk of couponing. Not only do I have a nice stockpile for the family but we can also help contribute to the local co-operative ministries, which does a wonderful job helping people who are going through tough times. I sure hope they like mustard!
To find local organizations to donate food and personal items, search Feeding America or Food Pantries. You can also inquire at local churches. They can usually suggest a local organization or they may have a food pantry of their own.
Here’s what was in The Donation Box for 8-6
8 French’s Mustard
12 Protein Bars
3 Franks RedHot Sauce
2 Scope Outlast Mouthwash 750 ml

|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 $$, time, or items.. it all matters to someone!|
