Did you eat breakfast this morning? Feed your family dinner last night? This is a small thing that I'm so grateful for. Hunger is a real problem in Amercia.
As of 2009, more than 50 million Americans live in food in-secure homes. More than 50 million?! In America?! This is a real issue, folks - but today you can help.
Today (5/14) is the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Just place some non-perishable food items in a bag and leave it at your mailbox today. Your letter carrier will pick it up for you and deliver it to local food banks or pantries.
It's that easy - you don't even have to leave your home!
Another great reason why I love couponing is that it allows our family to give back more. Our pantry is full, and our wallets aren't quite as empty as they used to be - so giving back is easier than ever.
We've already packed up our bag. Have you?
I'd also encourage all of you to head over and check out Couponing For Community. You'll get a great chance to see how everyone is making a difference!
There has been a huge uproar over couponers not giving back and "hoarding" since the original airing of Extreme Couponing. This just goes to show that most of us are giving back and helping more than ever!
