Extreme Couponing

Charitable Donations with Coupons

Sometimes we find it difficult to find the extra money to donate to causes and charities we would like to support.  I bet these same causes have offices and bathrooms that require products that normally they would have to spend money on.  All Purpose cleaners, kleenex, toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, office supplies, etc. are all necessary.  You could use your coupons to purchase these items at a large discount (or get free) and donate them to your favourite organizations. 

Caring Cupboard and the Food Bank can always use food, toiletries, and over the counter medications.  Buy them with coupons and donate.  At Christmas you may be able to find coupons for toys and games to donate.

I am on the board of the local museum (Backus-Page House Museum).  We require kitchen & bathroom products, food and soft drinks for most events, and office supplies of course.  This is a non-profit organization and any money we can save can be put towards the museum upkeep and the collection.  I am going to ask the board and members at our Annual General Meeting to collect coupons so we can save on these supplies, therby reducing our expenses.

Canadian Tire money collected by a group of people can be used to purchase items that ordinarily would cost a charity money.  Air Miles can be redeemed for gift cards to many stores.  Petro Points can be redeemed for gas cards.

Leave a comment with more ideas on how to help charitable organizations using rewards and coupons.
