"Clipping for a Cause" Excitement Wednesday Night!






This past Wednesday had to be the most unbelievable night since "Clipping for a Cause" first began. As we gathered in the room and began to sort through the OVERWHELMING amount of donated coupon inserts, you could feel the excitement in the air! To put it into perspective, Kellie, my right-hand-woman and "The Organizer" as I will proudly label her, had to create a new organizing system! There were so many donated inserts that in some cases, just one date (ex. 3/21/10) had to have an ENTIRE binder just for itself!!! What a great problem to have!

If I had to guess, I would say there were at least 100+ coupon inserts spread out on the tables. We spent the night clipping away...and this week, two of our main items we concentrated on were Lunchables (currently 10 for $10 and there is a $1/1 coupon in 3/21 SS) and Mahatma Rice (always 0.99 for short grain and there is a 0.50/1 coupon in 4/25/10 RP making it free).

30 Lunchables were delivered already to The Quinn House of Lawrenceville on Friday, and one of the residents explained to me that "he could eat all of them in one sitting!" More are on the way, as we divided up all of the coupons and shopping between us!
