Supporting our Troops – Projects in the Works

Share This:

The last time i got some toothpaste for free at Walgreens and I was putting it away, I realized I am now up to 5 tubes of toothpaste. I know that it will get used eventually, but it got me thinking… What do I do if I keep getting free or close-to-free toothpaste? I don’t want my stockpile to look like the people that were on TLC’s Extreme Couponing that were borderline hoarders (in my opinion). Then, the gears starting turning…

My brother is currently in the Marines and he is in the middle of his second deployment in Afghanistan. What better way to help support him and the troops? I have started a box that I am going to fill with not only my stockpile overflow, but also free samples I get. When it fills, I will send it overseas. I am going to call this project, “Stockpiling for our Military“.

With this in mind, I somehow landed on a website that is dedicated sending expired coupons to military bases overseas for the military families to use.  I plan on “adopting” a base and sending monthly packages of all my expired coupons. I haven’t finished looking into everything yet, so this is still in its very early stage.

Both projects are still in the works, but I am extremely excited about getting them going. I will provide more information as it develops and please let me know if you are interested in contributing!

    Sam, do you have an address of where we can send packages and or coupons? I have never done this, but posted about it on my blog with a link to your site and I would like to do it as well. Just let me know where I need to send these things :)
