Great job,
So far this month I have donated 4 bags of food to the pantry. This week I am making up a huge basket of stuff to give a friend who is laid off. She has 2 kids and is short on money.

I sent a box to a soldier from anysoldier.com. Here's the list of what I had in there...

6 bottles of those freebie eyedrops from Target
6 bars of Dove soap
10 Dry Idea deoderants
10 Sure clinical strength deoderants.
10 Dove trial size shampoo/conditioner travel sizes
20 special K protien bars
20 packages of M&M's
10 travel size bottles of various types of lotions
1 set of new twin size sheets
1 box of zipper ziploc bags
20 packages of the tide one use detergent.
10 tubes of blistex chapstick
5 tubes of Burt's BEes chapstick.
10 bottles of travel size purell.

I paid less than $20 total for all this stuff...shipping cost me $11 something. :)

Great job you guys!! I really, truly LOVE the fact that couponing enables me (and you) to get so much for free that I can donate to those that need it!

Ok Tanya, I will be late AGAIN with my donation this month.
I am in the midst of collecting(aka shopping at Acme for free stuff)this week. After Wed. I can get in the stockpile too to purge and get my car loaded up to take to the Food Bank.

Wouldn't it be awesome if a bunch of us couponers lived in the same town and donated like this all the time? I think we could open our own Food Bank!lol

I'll check in and link up this weekend or so....

Can't wait to see what you're able to donate Sluggy! Shop your heart out at Acme - just know that I am EXTREMELY jealous of the deals you've been snagging there :)

That would be great if we could do that - I think people would be so impressed ;)
