Save Your Empty Containers for the Food Bank

Save your empty plastic and glass containers for your food bank or soup kitchen. In my city, the food bank often gets huge containers of peanut butter, oil, laundry soap, raisins, etc from restaurants - like 25 pounds or gallons in a single plastic bucket. We use people's donated empties to separate them out into one-family portion sizes from 8 oz to 2 quarts. Include empty water bottles and grocery sacks too.

Editor's Note: One thing I like about this tip is it illustrates that charity doesn't always have to require spending money. Food banks and animal shelters often have a list of items that they need to be donated: food, old towels, your time, etc...
