In case you missed it, the PF blogosphere’s Robin Hood!
August 28, 2009
It’s been a while since I’ve had reason to CVS or Walgreens (esp now that WG no longer has their FAR program), but I haven’t lost my appreciation of a good deal.
To go you one better, MoneyMateKate is combining good deals with good deeds: the products of her coupon/bargain labor goes to the needy of NYC in the form of Care Packages. She’s expanding her couponing efforts, and if anyone can help her with packets of coupons, they’d be much appreciated. (Mine is in the mail, Kate!)
Take a look at this post which explains her coupon needs, and continue to follow her adventures as she scoops up merchandise for nearly or all the way free to share with those less fortunate.
In this prolonged recession, I’m sure that many are grateful for the basic necessities she’s provided since the usual channels for charity have been overwhelmed with more supplicants than donors. It’s a great way to give, doesn’t take much more than some minimal effort on your part to print and mail, or clip and mail, the coupons and directly goes into the hands of people in need.
She’s also fun and entertaining when she’s not couponing, so you should follow her if you don’t already, anyway! 🙂
