Wondering what to do with your free items from couponing? Let me share share this tip…
There are so many things you can get for free with coupons (or you can get them very, very cheap). In the end, you may wind up with quite a few free items that you can’t possibly use before they go bad.
So, what do you do with all of those free items?
What most people would tell you, is to simply not buy so many, but there are some items out there that you can actually get paid to purchase, when you combine the sale prices with coupons and/or mail-in rebate offers.
Why wouldn’t you “buy” something, if in fact the store/manufacturer were going to pay you to take them home?
If you don’t use those items that you get for free, or you end up getting more than you can use, I recommend donating as much as you possibly can.
There are sure to be many food banks and shelters in your area and I can almost guarantee that they are struggling to find donations. Find those locations, figure out what they are in desperate need of and if you can, donate those items.
This is a much better thing to do with your free (or very, very cheap) stuff than just letting it sit in your stockpile and go bad.
You should definetely give not only to food banks and shelters, but to friends and family members as well.
Being able to donate is one of the best things about couponing.
Up until recently, I was never able to financially donate to charities, so donating stockpile items was a great way for me to use my couponing habit for good, and to pay it forward.
If you have lots of extras in your stockpile, I encourage you to do the same.
