I am so excited to share this with you all! Recently I went to 305 8th Street Group Home to drop off some donations. They mentioned that they were out of canned goods, and a friend of mine gave me a check to pick up some donations for them. Wow!
They knew that I'm totally a let's-see-how-much-I-can-stretch-the-$50 kinda gal, but the items that 305 needed weren't on sale ~ anywhere. So, I called Laurie and we decided Aldi would be the best place to pick up the most items at the best price ~ I grabbed everything above for $61 and was thrilled to help them re-stock their food pantry.
This will help 305 8th Street so much. Imagine if your family took a night off of eating out, ate sandwiches instead, and went shopping to grab a ton of items for those who are in need – isn't it amazing to think what just one meal out could do? So many group homes run on a shoestring budget, and after shopping your whole family (kids included!), could swing by to drop the donations off. It really could be life changing not only for you but also for your children as they see how they're able to give.
Whenever we teach coupon classes, Laurie and I always share that donating is really the reason we drive ourselves a wee bit nuts to share deals with you each day and get a few deals ourselves. It would be so much easier just to swing by the store, get what we need, and pay full price, but because we pinch a few pennies each week we're able to give to those in need.
And to me, that's worth it. 😉
