    I will be the first to admit I love when my shelves are full. I buy items when they are on sale with the hopes I will give them to family and friends. I now shop for 20 households which are 62 people. Ages vary from newborn - seniors. Cats, dogs, fish, and every animal you can think of. I do this because I enjoy couponing and the value it has on peoples lives. On top of my families I donate as much as I can do various organizations. Now, these families do give me some money so I can continue purchasing items for them but I get no personal gain out of it.

    When I read SCer mandolinatou post about giving items away to her family/friends I got a HUGE motivation kick (thanks again!) For two months I ransacked my house finding every item I bought with the intention of giving to someone. I set everything out like a garage sale (sorry no pics, I was so stressed I completely forgot to take pictures) and opened my stockpile to all 62 people. I encouraged them to take atleast 6 months worth because I need a coupon break but they could take anything they wanted.


    Here is what my stockpile looked like before:




    And after:



    Yep, I think I just about died when I saw what was left LOL. I did forget to take photos of the gifts as well as the diaper I had. I had about 3,000 diapers I gave away in various sizes. Between my stockpile and gifts I believe in one day I gave away over $10,000 worth of product.

    You know what? It was the best day I've had in a long time. Will get my coupon spunk back and do it all again!
