I would love to share a story about my son’s Scout Troop.
They do an annual food drive, Scouting for Food, every year. This year they collected a large amount of food plus they also received $480 in donations.
Instead of donating the cash, myself and another couponing Mom took that and turned the $48o donation into $1584 worth of food to be added to the Scouting for Food donation.
We also took along the Scout Master on our shopping trip, He was so amazed at the savings, he is now actively couponing for his family as well as the Troop. We were very thankful to our local Publix for allowing us to come in and coupon for that much food and be able to use all our coupons, they are a wonderful asset to our community.
The Food Bank was amazed at what these young men pulled off by donating over 3500 lbs of food. We are very proud of our Scout for a job well done!
Thanks so much for sharing with us, Laura!
I could really use a few new volunteers for the Reader Spotlight – so please write in if you have a story to tell! Your post can be about almost anything to do with couponing. You can tell us about a particularly good or bad situation you’ve dealt with as a couponer, about how you got into couponing or how couponing has impacted the rest of your life, you can make a list of things every new couponer should know…just about anything, really! If you think it’s interesting and it has to do with couponing, email me with your idea at contactiheartpublix @ gmail.com!
