  1. Wonderful idea….I coupon also (not that great at it) and I never buy the ‘free’ stuff that we wouldn’t use. You’ve changed my mind. We have a local food pantry that would be blessed by it…thanks 🙂

  2. this really blessed me, because i know what it is like today to be struggling with things like being about to by toiltries, you take so many things for granted when you have everything taking cared for you. But when i was down and out i’m learning that little stuff matters. Thank you for this will be looking for coupons.

  3. I’m a recently singled mother of three little ones and a woman from my small group at church (who I know is an avid couponer) blessed me with two sacks of personal products, toothpaste, toothbrushes, household needs. It blessed me SO much! I told her she was my hero of the week.

    I encourage everyone to just hand a sack to a friend you know may need the pick-me-up! I hope to pass along the blessing!

  4. This is the heart of Christmas. I read your other post before digging into this one. And it made the reading of this post that much more stirring.

    This is the meaning of this season.

    When personal trial cultivates growth and overflows with compassion. When one who once received “unexpected gifts” in the middle of a storm becomes the bearer of generosity. That. Is. Christmas.

    Thank you Jessica

  5. Oh, girl, I love the way you use your mad organizational skills to love on others. Having experienced it firsthand, I know the joy you’re so good at bringing!

  6. Jessica! You are so creatively generous! Sometimes, there are just crazy super sales and now, you gave me a really wonderful idea. Merry Christmas!
