I just wanted to take a minute to encourage those of you who have been purchasing food and toiletries for pennies on the dollar with the intention of donating them to do it. Many food banks and other organizations are in dire need of donations right now, and there are plenty of places to donate – please don’t let food sit in your pantry for months if you intend to donate it, as there are so many people that would be able to use it right now.
Also, this week I received this email from Victoria, who’s been coordinating the sending of your expired coupons to a US military base in Japan:
Hi Carrie: Just wanted to thank you and your community-we just sent $1000+ in expired coupons to our adopted overseas base and they are so grateful.
If you’re interested in sending your expired coupons overseas where our military can use them on the commissaries, here’s the information on how to join the effort.
Thanks so much for all of your generousity to our community! Image credit: Melody
