Extreme Giving: Stock Up & Give Back
So, now that we all know about Extreme Couponing, let's talk about 'Extreme Giving.' One of the biggest blessings with couponing is the ability to give back to those around you. The thing is, that doesn't mean you have to find a large charity (although that's just fine) but you can also just walk outside your front door.
Chances are one of your neighbors is in need too. Right now, there are over 13.5 million Americans unemployed that means there are quite a few people in need of your help. Isn't it great when you hear of a need and you have the ability to fulfill it? Just recently, I found out a family member was in need so I went straight to my stockpile.
The picture above is of a simple box full of personal care items to help him out right now. It was easy and most of the items were free after coupons. Those items add up and when every penny counts sometimes just the cost of toothpaste can be too much.
Yeah, we need to be 'extreme couponers' but not so we can hide toilet paper in our shower, but so we can give toilet paper to those who really need it or diapers to families that actually have kids. In my opinion, if you're going to be 'extreme' anything, be an extreme giver.
