♥ Coupon Benevolence

Coupon Benevolence

Join me in my quest for coupon benevolence!  We’re going to see just how much I can acquire with $13.00 and the use of coupons each month throughout 2013 ~ these items will be donated to my favorite local non-profit agency, which provides community service to women and children escaping domestic violence.

Do you have a favorite local non-profit agency that could benefit from a little creative charitable work on your part?  If you don’t already know, contact that agency for their ‘Wish List’ so you know what gifts will benefit them most.  One person really can make a difference!GreenDotRibbon

Then, life happened.  Time passed much too quickly, and demands on my time changed.  If the glass is half empty, I failed in my endeavor to provide a wonderful agency a continuous supply of much needed items for the entire year.  If the glass is half full, I succeeded in providing many needed items to those in need for five months.

That is all.

  1. I was able to pick up a couple more items yesterday. The items themselves were free after the coupon, but I still had to pay sales tax, so I spent .20 cents.

  2. I got nine things so far.
    . Dental Floss =1
    . Deodorant = 4
    . Men’s Body Wash = 1
    . Panty Liners =2
    . Lip balm = 1
    WOOO HOOOO

    • Yay, Buddy! Are you keeping track of how much you’re spending, or are you just going to see how many items you’re able to get?

      Our local community service agencies are going to think the ‘Wish List Fairies’ have arrived!

  3. I picked up some toilet paper today ~ free after the coupon. I spent another .10 cents. I think I can print a couple more coupons, so I should be able to pick some more up.

  4. I picked up three more boxes of toothpaste, a toothbrush and some Blistex. The total damage was .31 cents.

  5. Update time Buddie!!
    Toothpaste = 5
    Toothbrush = 3
    Dental Floss Picks = 2
    Blistex/Carmex lip balm =3
    Men’s Body Wash = 1
    Feminine hygiene products = 2
    Deodorant; Women’s = 4
    2 pack Dial Soap for Men =1
    Soft Soap Liquid =1

    Total Items = 23
    Out of Pocket = $ 1.18 :-)
    if my calculations are correct

    • Well, you’ve outdone me! I can’t get away from that blasted sales tax! I saw some new coupons from today that are match-ups, so I should be able to get a few more items before the month runs out on me.

      • Well, I wasn’t adding tax. :-) Had fun going with you with our match-ups!
        2 more men’s deodorant
        1 toothbrush
        1 liquid dish-soap
        While you are busy tomorrow, I am hoping to make a run and see what I can get with these expiring coupons.
