September 1 - time to start a new challenge

I seem to do better if I have a challenge to motivate myself. Here is one to take us to the end of the year.
500 pound donation challenge

I recently read about a fellow WUCkie (We love coupons forum member and I have a link over to the right in the links section) who’s Pastor challenged his whole church to donate the total family’s weight in food for the local food pantry. I already donate to my church’s food pantry but I admit I have been slipping lately. So this has motivated me to do the same so here I am to proclaim Greg & I will donate 500 pounds of food and health & beauty products to our church pantry BY CHRISTMAS. And of course I will do it as cheaply as I can.

Here is the running list but I don’t have weights yet. I need to buy a scale for that

12.6oz Pantene conditioner
2 – 42 count Pull Up wipes
2 – 2.6 oz Degree Deodorant
7 Reach toothbrushes
5 Reach floss
8 trial size various health & beauty items
1 – 8ct Walgreen’s tampons

Stay tuned to see how well we can do on this challenge.

Thanks for reading and blessings, Laura
