First – A Quick Back-Story:
A few years back, my family was on Food Stamps and WIC, and we were STILL using our credit card to help us close the gap from month to month. As unlikely as it sounds, learning how to coupon was what put my family in the position to get off those programs and turn the tables. Now, I have a stockpile big enough to feed my family and (this part I love) others.
In the end – learning how to save – taught me how to GIVE. It’s the most amazing thing…..
That being said -
Today, Saturday the 14th, is the LARGEST 1-Day Food Drive in America – Stamp Out Hunger. The food collected will go to feed hungry families all over the nation, so look over your little (or large) stockpile with a generous eye! They’ve made this food drive easy enough for even the laziest and most forgetful to do – all you have to do is hang a bag of canned or boxed food on your mailbox!
If you are looking for cheap donation items for the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive – OR- to donate to local receiving centers for Tornado Disaster Relief, you can find our $1 and Under “Best Buys” list RIGHT HERE.
The list covers all the freebies & cheapies available this week – with asterisks next to the non-perishables that would be good donation items.
