Giving Back - Helping Hands

Giving Back | Donate for $2 or Less

Are you ready for a little Giving Back?!  I love helping each of you find deals throughout the week for your family. Once a week, I get to help you pick a couple of items that you can pick up for $2 or less so you can donate to someone in need! If you have enough in your stockpile already, you can pick some non-perishable grocery items or persaonl care items from there for FREE to donate to someone in need. I’m going to focus mainly on School Supplies as there are a lot of families in need of these items and we can all pitch in and donate with the super Cheap Deals we find on school supplies!

The biggest ‘bonus’ of couponing is that you quickly have an abundance of food and supplies and have the ability to give to those in need.  If you’ve been reading my blog for even a short period of time, you know that I am HUGE advocate of ‘Giving Back’ and Blessing others. There was a time before I learned to use coupons that our family was incredibly blessed by the ministry of a food bank in our time of need. I am blessed that today I’m able to Give Back and can bless others out of the abundance I have from being a Savvy Couponer. Each week I suggest a few items that you can donate for around $2. If you can’t get to a Food Bank…PLEASE donate to a family in need! YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Here are a Few Options of Differnt items you can purchase to donate at Several Different Stores. Please note that Prices may vary by region.
