Like mentioned previously, I like to coupon and get good deals that can benefit my family. While I was watching Extreme Couponing on Nexflix a few months ago I thought it would be incredible to be able to get a huge amount of stuff that you almost paid nothing for and be able to donate it all. I talked to Derek about how for Thanksgiving I would really like to be able to get a bunch of toiletry items and pantry items and be able to donate them to a local food bank as my way of giving back this holiday season.
So, I've made a goal for myself. Sometimes my goals can be lofty, and I fall short but this is something that I really want to try to aim for, but I'm going to need your help. I'm setting a goal of getting $1,000 of retail value in products, but I want to only spend $50 max on it, and donate it all. I know there are a lot of people out there that could benefit from a donation like this, and I know there are even more people who throw away their coupons that they get in the mail/newspapers each week. So my hope is maybe, if you're not going to use your coupons, send them to me so I can make them benefit someone else!
If you're local and would like to save some for me I can come and pick them up from you, and if you're not local, but would still like to help, let me know and I can send you my address for you to send me your coupons.
As this is going to take a lot of planning and organizing, I'm not going to be able to do this in one big haul like on the show, because I'll have to be watching sale prices and just grab things as I can when they become really cheap, so I'll periodically update on here where I'm at with everything, so everyone can see all the good use that their coupons are going to!
Let me know if you want to help, and let's make a difference!
