donating free razors

Today I Will Be Donating…

… a bunch of free razors I’ve received in the past few months (over $200 worth). I want this to be a reminder that you don’t have to keep all the freebies and free samples your receive through Coupon Pro. You can always donate them to a friend, family and homeless centers or Churches within your community, as well as the Goodwill or Salvation Army. Happy Donating! 😀

If you have any other donation recommendations, leave them in the comments below.

YAY!! Good job Ro!
And WOW that’s a lot of free razors.
AMAZING! I’m sure the donations will be gladly appreciated. ^-^

My problem is that I give everything away and have nothing left for myself when I need it!

You are doing what I am, I finally got my son to clean out his closet full of nearly new clothes. I have a huge box and another bag and along with that I put together a backpack full of samples and freebies that I thought someone else could use. Sometimes we just need a kick in the butt to get us going.

I save all of my samples and freebies I would never use and donate them to my local bread basket for Christmas gifts.

I see someone commented above. I was going to suggest the Ronald McDonald Houses as well. Many times the families that stay there leave their homes so quickly that they have nothing with them but the clothes on their backs. It is a big blessing to them!

I make stockings for my family every year. With the addition of spouses and children my family has grown quite a bit…I have about 15 stockings to make. That can get pretty pricey so the last few years I have made the stockings using ONLY items I have gotten for free either with coupons or in the mail. My family loves their “free stuff” stockings even more than they loved their stockings before I started this tradition!

I would donate to Salvation Army local domestic Abuse Shelters and Wounded Warriors, Sadly you donate to Goodwill and they charge people for it as does the Red Cross if its a Salvation Army homeless shelter they do not charge but others do. A local VA Hosp will take them as well and give to the homeless they help. Just an idea I just hate to think all the work we do to get it and be nice enough to donate and they turn around and charge

Could you explain this a wee bit better. I don’t really understand. I thought the Salvation Army does a wonderful job in general as does Goodwill. We have a Goodwill in Richmond Hill, Ga. and I have donated clothes. What do you mean by charging???

They charge an arm and a leg for their donated goods. We went there not to long go to see if I could find my son some jeans, and they were priced anywhere between $7-11.00, for a pair of used jeans. Its amazing how many great donations they receive, and how they mark up the prices to new store prices….

I never thought of the Ronald McDonald House.

As far as Goodwill, don’t the profits go to help the handicapped, they used to provide jobs for them. This may of changed over the many years, but I knew of several handicapped people who worked for them.

I am donating my famine products to the school.

I live in a rural area, not familiar with any shelters except for one housing men. (most of my items are for females).

Hi. Goodwill uses the profits to help disabled people become employed. They have a huge staff dedicated to putting people to work through training, referrals and connections with local businesses. I know this because I live with someone who works there, and we frequently donate because we know it’s a really good cause. We shop there, too, for the same reason, and also because you just can’t match the prices at regular stores, and we have found some really great things over the years that you can’t even get at stores anymore.
