A 58 Cent Donation!
Ever since we started the "divide and conquer" method of shopping for "Clipping for a Cause," I have noticed a huge difference. As you have heard me explain before, each month, we are amazed at the growing number of coupon inserts being donated! Some weeks, we come in to clip and there are 100+ inserts to organize! Therefore, we have started having to divide up the coupons so that one person isn't buying 40 items from one store and wiping them out! (I know this makes you happy to know!)
Anyway, here is a recent photo of Carrie's shopping trip that totaled 58 cents! She is new to the ministry, but a pro at couponing! All of the pictured items will be included in the delivery during tomorrow's Mobile Food Drive that will benefit the Lawrenceville Co-op, Family Promise of Gwinnett and The Quinn House of Lawrenceville.
