Couponing for Community Event

As much as I love to cook and bake, I love saving money more.

I was excited last year to hear about an event called Stamp Out Hunger. Couponing for Community is a nationwide event utilizing the power of couponing and social media to make a united impact for those in need.

This is where Saving and Giving Unite.

We invite you to join this community by using your couponing skills to give to a homeless shelter, food pantry, or a friend in need during the week of May 8-14!

What is the Goal?
This year we are setting a goal of 10,000 items donated in one week’s time. We invite you to track your giving during the week of May 8-14 and then come back here to share your story. We'll even have a giving tracker to tally up everyone's efforts!!

Why May 8-14?
We (couponers) are the kind of people who find ways to give all year long. But we have chosen to set aside one week each year to ‘flex our couponing muscles’ for GOOD and show the impact we can have when we work together. We also chose this week because May 14 is national Stamp out Hunger Day, so giving can be as easy as putting a bag of non-perishable food items out by your mailbox on Saturday, May 14. Check with your local Post Office to find out if they are participating at Stamp out Hunger.

Pop on over to and check it out for yourself!
My personal goal is 100 items - I can't wait to see how quickly we meet our goal!!
