2010 food pantry totals

December 31st, 2010 at 02:08 pm

In 2010 I spent 289.17 for 831 items that were donated to the food pantry in 2010. This included food, personal care, pharmacy, cleaning supplies, paper products and toys. The face value of the items was $1036.62 a 72% savings. The original goal was to spend $20/month and try to purchase 100 items. I did this pretty regularly in 2009, but was only able to meet the 100 item goal a couple times in 2010. The deals just weren't there. However, I am happy with what I was able to do. Next year I plan to increase the monthly amount to $25. I also usually spend another $75 for toys, I plan to spend $100 on toys in 2011.

It's a whopping 3 degrees here today. The roads are still really slick and lots of accidents. Dad came by and picked me up so we could walk at Walmart.

I finished reading my book Gravity Dreams by L.E. Modesitt Jr. Sci/Fi - pretty good.

    Food charities are at the top of my list when it comes to donations. I made cash donations to our local food bank and to a senior citizen food bank in 2010. You are right about the deals not being out there in the grocery stores.

    I think you did a great job! I have followed your lead and started couponing and buying really cheap stuff to donate if we don't use it in a reasonble period of time.
