I haven't donated personal care items for a while for a couple of reasons. First, we have been overwhelmed with free-loaders lately. Apparently word has gotten out about our route and people who have homes, drive their cars to our stops and get in line for all stuff we hand out. It's a difficult thing to handle, but most importantly we don't want to take away from our homeless friends who we are there to help. Secondly, while I know their are some personal care items in the storage facility, I haven't had the time to go and get them. Finally, and most importantly, I've been working on a project for my cousin for a couple months now. I have a box of personal care items for her family, I'm hoping enough for a year, that I will be sending home with her when she visits. I'm super excited about this one because she is bringing me some specialty flours, seeds, etc. that I cannot easily get my hands on. One of the things I love about couponing is that you can easily barter with your surplus or just give it away!
On with the shop:
9 Brut Deo - $10/10. I paid FREE.
I used 9 of the $1/1 Brut from 5/18 SS insert. For the homeless.
4 Sure Deo - 2/$3. I paid $2.00 for all 4.
I used 4 of the $1/1 Sure from 5/18 SS insert. 2 of these will finish up deo for my cousin, and 2 are for my own stockpile.
My total at the register was $2, or $3.35 after tax.
