    Dropped off my Lenten donation

    I dropped off the last of my Lenten donations to the Senior Center Food Bank. I made a donation box for Lent like the reverse Advent box in December. Between coupons and Ibotta combined with a sale I got 8 jars of Ragu Simply for .11 each at Target, Ibotta gave $1 back for each cup of noodles, they were .78 at Walmart so there was 10 of them and I made .22 each. Several samples of items I got from this site including the Dunkin Donuts coffee. Progresso Organic Soup that was on clearance at CVS for .77 cents and I had some .50 and .75 coupons, had coupons for Spam that was on clearance at Walgreens and some dry noodles for the Ragu, also body wash etc. What I have learned from these experiences, print coupons for things you won't use yourself, CVS and Walgreens has some of the best clearance items and money makers and I will check them more often. Not everything I gave is considered healthy, knowing they are not just going to hand 10 salt laden cup of noodles to one person and that it was nothing more than one hot meal. I don't think any one item was more than .25, many were free and I lucked into some of them by being in the right place at the right time and had coupons. I'm sharing this to say that each of us can make a contribution with little effort on our part and my choice of donations site was because I am in awe of the Greatest Generation. I'm going through my pantry next, I'm sure my family is tired of some of the things I picked up for next to nothing (VDC pork and beans for .19 a can and enough cans of chili and green beans to last until the rapture) and are a few months from expiration and drop that off next. I know many of these people are caring for grandchildren and making decisions on what they can afford this month, utilities or medication. I also shared this to see what others are doing and maybe get some ideas for other projects. I'll be looking for items on trash day to see what I can refurbish or just clean up and donate to a local church who passes it on to families in need or have had a tragedy like a fire. Wanting to keep busy and away from the TV and get outside more, I feel as though I've wasted so much of my life. So please share and help me out. But don't mention cooking anything for anyone because I could burn water. Thanks and have a wonderful day.
    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.
