I realized that my cabinet held many items needed for relief. I had cold medicine, baby supplies, hand sanitizer, body wash, tooth brushes, etc. I found a way to get the items down there through the Nazarene Church of the Caribbean. I printed a list of needs and went through my "coupon stockpile". God's timing was perfect- He's into coupons. In the last few weeks I've stocked up on the following:
-diaper rash ointment
I have had the following in my house for quite some time:
-Bladder infection relief medicine
- Travel size shampoos and wash
I quickly filled an old diaper box from Sam's Club with the items.
I decided I could do more and started searching my go-to websites for deals to help pack the box.
Here's what I got:
-Halls: Normally $1.50, I had a .50 cent off coupon and they were on sale for $1! I paid .50 cents.
-Nyquil: Normally $5.49, I had a $2 off coupon. The Nyquil was on sale for $3.99, plus you get another $1 off with their Single Check Rebate program. That's 99 cents, folks!
- Packaging tape: Normally $1.08, I had a dollar off coupon. .08 cents!
Here's my favorite stop in my Haiti Shopping Spree:
-Johnson and Johnson Band Aids: 97 cents. I had a dollar off coupon, they adjusted it down to the price and I got it for FREE!
-Johnson and Johnson First Aid Kit: Same deal as above, FREE!
-Bottle of Peroxide: .62 cents
-Tide (Travel size): .97 cents, I had a .35 cent off any Tide coupon, so .62 cents.
-Dove Deodorant: .99/each. I bought two trial size and used a coupon for $1.50 off two deodorants.
-Johnson and Johnson Baby Wash: .97 cents. I had a $1.00 off coupon. FREE!
Not bad right??
Especially when you consider what that would have cost me at full price:
So- moral of the story folks: Clip coupons, save money, give generously.
