Thrifty Thursday: Season for Giving

20111117-171653.jpg

This time of year, there are many organizations asking for donations to help those who are in need. Living on a tight budget, however, doesn’t leave much money to spend on items for other people. My solution: stock up on personal care items when they’re on excellent sales to donate.

Items included in this particular care package:

Dove Shampoo – $5.99
Dove Conditioner – $5.99
Softsoap Body wash – $3.99
Ladies’ Degree Deodorant – $3.79
Gillette Men’s Hair & Body wash – $4.99
Gillette Men’s Deodorant – $4.99
Ajax dish soap – $1.89
Colgate toothpaste – $4.50
(2) Oral B toothbrushes – $3.99/each = $7.98
Reach floss – $0.88
Revlon Nail Clippers – $1.45
Revlon Emery Boards $1.25
Kix cereal – $4.49
Honey Bunches of Oats cereal – $4.99

Total (retail price): $57.18

Approximate price after promotions and coupons: $1.89 + tax

With a little planning, I am able to donate a nice assortment of personal care items to help those on need, without spending a lot of money.
