Over the past few years since I’ve been getting most of our toiletries for free, I’ve amassed a good amount of shampoos and toothpaste. But after all 2 people can only use so much conditioner! The draw of the free thing makes me want to go and get the item but the fact that I can donate it to something I believe in makes it all the more worthwhile.
As I checked out at Menards last week the cashier asked me, “Is this all for you or are you donating it?” I looked down at the 6 backpacks and mounds of school supplies and let her know that I just had an 18 month old. She then informed me that during Katrina lots of people came and got the free after rebate items to donate. This made me so excited as I really don’t want to become a hoarder but rather a giver on a budget. On one income there’s no way we could write checks for certain organizations but by donating free things we’re helping out.
It’s for that reason that I want to invite you all out to the Mummy Deals Back to School Drive next Monday August 24th at John’s Pizzeria in Dyer. I am soooooooooooo excited about this event as are my GREAT, AWESOME, AMAZING crew of helpers who pulled this whole thing together at very short notice. Special shoutout to: Katie, Kara, Tina, Lori, Laurie, April, and Nicole.
