Donate Excess Sale Items to Charities

Sometimes when grocery shopping I will purchase a product, usually a "two for the price of one", that is new to me looking to bring something different to the table. This could be a new flavor of a sauce or rice mix, many times a sale item to promote a new product.


On the occasion that it isn't quite our tastes the 2nd package of it winds its way to the back of our pantry. Clearing out the shelves after the holidays I found several of these items, and have now made a special "home" for them in the cupboard where they await the next food drive that will be collecting for those in need.

When grocery stores offer buy one, get one free deals, take the "free" items to your local Hope ministries, food bank, homeless shelter, etc. You are making a great contribution and you really won't miss the money this way.
