I’ve only been shopping for free for about a month, but I’ve been a couponer for years. After I heard about the Joplin Tornado I went through all of my coupons, made my shopping plan and went out shopping for Joplin. I packed up the box (it weighs 12 lbs!) and mailed it out this morning.
Here’s what was inside.
2 Similac ready to feed formulas
8 packs of carefree panty liners
4 boxes of Necare Bandages
2 boxes of Tylenol Precise Patches
2 Aquafresh toothpastes
3 Packages of razors
8 travel sized deodorants
7 travel sized soaps
20+ Travel shampoos
9 Travel lotions
and 3 bottles of ibuprofen
All of it was free, with the exception of the ibuprofen which was 88 cents for the store brand. So for under $3 I was able to pay it forward in a huge way. You can bet that I will be filling another box soon, most likely for my town’s senior center. Thanks SO much for showing us all how to make this possible. You ROCK!
