My goal for our family is a 3 month stockpile. Anything over and above that goes into a charity box, which I keep near the front door to bring each week to the food pantry at my church. It's amazing to watch how quickly this box fills up as the week progresses. I love that strategic shopping has become not only a blessing to my own family, but to many others that I may never meet.
After dropping off the box today, filled with food and toiletries, and then making my drugstore rounds after church, I already have two bottles of body wash to give for next Sunday! Can't wait to score more deals -- some to keep and some to give away!
