What a wonderful thing to do! My son has recently joined the military, and I am becoming more aware of the difficulties they/their families face. Helping them out while the husband gets his feet back on the ground was a very generous thing to do.

I love that Qing allows me to give back!!! Only a month in my sister, who lives paycheck to paycheck, made a mistake in her checking account and her "food money" for two weeks went to her overdraft fees. I was luckily heading up to visit her (we live 600 miles apart) and was able to bring her a bag of everything from hamburger helper to chips to pasta and sauce! It was so good to be able to help her like that and I'm do similar helps at least once a month down in my home state too!

Couponing has become a blessing to my family and allowed me to be a blessing to others! I can't write a check for mega dollars, it isn't in the family budget. But I can go to my stockpile, feed my family, my extended family, my friends and help my community.

Shhhh! Be va-wee, va-wee quiet. Dee is shopping for bargains!

I agree that the ability to give back is priceless. I maintain a box of items that I plan to donate. I always set aside a few dollars that I try to stretch as far as possible to get items for donation. It's been amazing watching it grow.

My pest control man (for years now) came to my house last week and mentioned one of his employees is having a hard time. Seems her husband just got out of the service and has an occupation that is hard to find a job with. She's making min. wage and they have kids. I loaded him up with 2 bags full of stuff for her.. toothpaste, mouthwash, toothbrushes, deoderant, soap, bodywash, razors, cereal, poptarts, shampoo, hamburger helper. It was so nice to be able to do that.. and just at the drop of a hat too!

I've also been able to make bags for a recently divorced mommy of 2 and someone who was in an accident and is unable to work.

My husband harasses me about the couponing and my "stock", but I tell you... being able to help people instantly.. is priceless. Totally worth every minute.

Yes indeed!

Thank you so much for helping those folks, and for inspiring others to do the same. I'm sure they appreciate it very much.

May God bless you.
