Couponing for Charity 5/8-14

I'm winding up another group of items to donate and this time, they're going to help victims of the tornado. We recently drove through parts of East TN that were severely impacted: roofs off houses, tractor trailers wrapped around each other, trees flattened. It was humbling to see the effects of mother nature. There are several local groups gathering goods for tornado victims; Coupon Katie and Frugalissa Finds list a few. I will be taking mine to Faith United Methodist Church because I know Gabrielle will make sure it gets to the right people!

If you're going to pick one store this week, I'd head to Kroger. Water is in high demand right now and Kroger has two ways to get free to cheap water through the mega sale (prices reflect savings once you buy 10 participating items).

For all the match-ups, go to Southern Savers.
For a pared down list, go to Coupon Katie.
  • Deer Park 3 liter ($.49)
  • Propel Fitness Water 24 oz ($.49 each, use $1/2 MC=2 FREE)
  • Nivea men's body wash ($2.49, use $3 MC=$.51 MM)
  • Reach toothbrush ($.49-$1 depending on your store; use $1/1 or $.50/1 that doubles MC=FREE toothbrushes)
  • Carefree pantyliners ($1, use $.50 MC that doubles=FREE)
  • Scotch Brite Green sponges ($1.49, use $1/1 printable=$.49)
  • Ronzoni pasta, most varieties ($.49, use $1/2 printables=FREE pasta. You can only use 2 like internet coupons per day, per customer. You can use two of each kind since they have different numbers on the validation code. So you can get up to 16 free boxes of pasta a day. They may not need them for the tornado victims, but someone will want them.
For all the match-ups, go to Southern Savers.

If you can find the infant care coupon books at Walgreen's, I would definitely recommend getting the Pampers deal to donate to tornado victims. Baby goods are in high demand. I have not been able to find those coupons, but Coupon Katie found them in Fountain City. Check out this good scenario for Pampers wipes and diapers.

The Cottonelle deal is also still going through 5/15. 12 rolls of TP for $2 is a good deal!

You can also get free toothpaste, toothbrushes, and body wash after coupons and RRs.

This is a snoozer week at CVS. I say skip it and save your ECBs for future sales.

For all the match-ups, go to Southern Savers.
For a pared down list, go to Coupon Katie.

You can get free infant toothbrushes, dental floss, body wash, and Tums.

Once I do my shopping this week and can go through some receipts, I'll update my totals.

Thank you to all who are following these posts and for donating what you can, when you can.


  1. This is a great post! Thanks so much for your hard work!!

  2. I just went to Kroger and here are a few updates. At the Middlebrook Pike store, they are out of Nivea body wash, the toothbrushes are not on sale, the Deer Park water is not marked but it is a mega-sale item, and there's plenty of Ronzoni except the Quick Cook type.
