We Hit $1000+

I just entered all of the purchases from late-December until today onto my spreadsheet, and I am so excited to announce that we have been able to donate $1012 worth of food & personal care items to The Pantry for only...drumroll please...$103, or roughly 25 cents per item (although we have TONS of freebies too!).

We can do SO MUCH more, but we need more coupons!  If you don't use your coupons, please consider donating them to Clipping for a Cause.  If you do use your coupons, clip what you need and give us what you don't need!  Place the full insert in the blue collection bin near the portico entrance.  It is very important that we get the inserts intact with their covers because we file them by date!

Here is our family's purchase for The Pantry this week!

*4 boxes of Mueller's Pasta
*6 boxes of Betty Crocker Potatoes
*3 boxes of Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa
*5 cans of Swanson's Vegetable Broth

After sales & coupons, we paid $6.02 for all of this.  Without sales & coupons, it would have been almost $27!

Just a reminder that HMUMC will be holding a coupon seminar to teach those interested in learning more on Sunday, November 21st at 4 PM.  A $10 donation is suggested and all funds received will go to the Clipping For A Cause ministiry to purchase low-to-no-cost food for The Pantry!

Publix Penny Item

This week's Publix Penny Item is a package Publix cheese (this is usually a package of sliced American cheese).  Yet another difficult "donation" item, but still a great deal if you can shop on Thursday!
