Shop & Drop

From an email...

Coupon Clipper: Drop and Run! It was so exciting!

I woke up with a strong "urge" to share our stash with our neighbors. We don't know them very well. They are an older couple, both on disability.

The kids and I shovel their drive in the winter and he cuts our lawn in the summer. We both call it "exercise". Recently we've noticed that 2 of their grown sons are spending a lot of time there, and have possibly moved back home.

My kids and I boxed up a ton of cleaning supplies and even more toiletries. We also added in some general health care items (aspirin, Tylenol, etc...). Sticker price on the items were well over $100. But of course I didn't pay more than $5 for the whole box.

We dropped it on their porch early this morning on our way to church and giggled and smiled all the way! I'm not sure which is more fun..."buying" the stuff, or giving it away!!

Me: YAY!!!

Now you've caught the REAL BUG of stockpiling!!! What an awesome lesson to teach you kids!!!
