Don't Forget to Stamp Out Hunger Saturday!

Remember, as long as you local post office is participating in the Letter Carriers' Food Drive, Saturday is the day to put bags of food out for your carrier to pick up. This is a great way to clean out any stockpiled food that has been sitting around for awhile, or to use those Kellogg's coupons in combination with any of the great deals offered this week.
Last year, I wrote this Wise Bread post on why Cheap Charity Is Sweet Charity. Just as it is with gifts for family and friends, one of the most exciting things for me about deal hounding is that it enables our family to give much MORE than we were able to give in the past.
And by the way, cereal is one of my favorite items to give in food drives. I get great deals on it so I always have a lot on hand, it lasts, is easy to prepare even if the recipients don't have a full kitchen, and it's not too heavy for my carrier to pick up.
