Extreme Couponing Tip: Coupon for a Cause!
This week’s Extreme Couponing Tip is a reminder to “Coupon for a Cause!” If some of you are new to the site, you might not be aware of our awesome Couponing for a Cause page, which is a list of food banks and shelters complied from reader submissions, where you can donate items you don’t need that you get for free or cheap with coupons!
With the holidays quickly approaching, there is no better time to start Couponing for a Cause. I can tell you that giving back to someone in need, as I’m sure you all already know, is such a rewarding experience. As we save so much money for ourselves and our families, we as couponers are able to provide for others with our ability to purchase products for free or near free. It’s easy to pass up on a deal because you think, “I don’t need that,” however I’m challenging you guys to try and pick up at least one freebie or super cheap item a week that you will be intentional about donating! This will be a challenge for me too. I have a closet full of HBA products I might never use, however I’m not good about getting it out of the house and in the hands of those less fortunate who can make great use of these name brand products we stock up on with coupons.
Here is another idea on how you can “give back” this holiday season. In addition to donating items to food banks in your area, consider really sitting down and helping a family member or friend learn how to coupon! If you’re an extreme couponer, I’m sure you get asked all of the time “how” you do it. Refer your family and friends to the LRWC Beginners section but also offer some added help to get them going. Why not invite them to go grocery shopping with you one night to give them a hands-on lesson? In addition to donating items to those in need, helping our family and friends “Live Rich with Coupons,” is so fulfilling!
So, will you be joining us here at LRWC in Couponing For a Cause?
If you have a food bank or shelter that you would like to see added to the list, you may email CFAC@livingrichwithcoupons.com with the information.
