Charitable Giving in Economic Downturns


I loved this article today about the importance of charitable giving during economic downturns, and thanks to Debbie Dubrow of Delicious Baby

Since I started two non-profit organizations working with AIDS orphans in Africa, Hope Runs and IBECOME, charitable giving is close to my heart.
Even if you are strapped this holiday season, try to think of those less fortunate and give some;)
Here’s me – stretching after running with our kids!

What to do with Expired Coupons


First off, are you cleaning out your coupons? You should be! Every little bit helps, and the more regularly you clean out your coupons the more manageable your couponing life will be. Don’t put this task off until you have 2 years of coupons to sort through – do it monthly to keep it all under control.

So what happens when you find the expired ones? You don’t need to recycle them (I hope you’re not throwing them out – they are paper after all!)…instead, donate them! My Precious Pennies has a great post on how you can donate expired coupons to military families.
