Last month, I discovered that some friends were part of a giving circle and that they were buying holiday presents for a needy family. They graciously allowed us to join them in the giving, so we gave a gift for each family member, and I also put together a large collection of toiletries and beauty products. Most of the toiletries were free or super cheap thanks to The Drugstore Game, but I realized I had far fewer items to give than I could have because I hadn’t shopped that much in the fall.
Prices have definitely gone up in the last couple of years, and I feel like I have to work harder to get the deals. Consequently, my stockpile is about two-thirds of the size it used to be.
So one of the things I want to do in 2012 is build my stockpile back up, so that I can give more. I’ve been going to one drugstore a week, usually CVS – so maybe I will start going to two drugstores a week to get more items.
Do you “Coupon for Good”?
