I often hear people saying with our modern-day economy, I wish I could give to Charity but I just don’t have the extra money todonate. Well. my poppa James McCaw used to say people always have money for their own priorities.  That being said, I want to tell you one way I save money and help my causes.  I buy at the local chain grocery stores their buy one get one free items. I can donate some of these items weekly to my local food pantry Englewood Florida‘s  Helping Hand! My husband Tom Helps me by scouring the local advertisements for these buy one get one free specials. Every week there are new specials! I once was behind a fellow purchasing some items that the store we were now in had featured in their weekly coupon advertisement , I knew this because I had purchased  a lot of the same items. I mentioned the coupons and he said he didn’t need the coupons. I proceeded to ask the gentleman if in the future he would take a minute before he left to shop at the store in the future and study and use the coupons. I then asked the fellow to take the money he saved to the local animal shelter down the road. Or, give to his favorite charity. He looked at me and said, I never thought about that , I will do that! I am not sure he ever did because we have never spoke again, but I am praying he would do what he said he would .  I know that there are  professionals , who spend time studying ways to save money. They have web sites , blogs, write books, and constantly update their information.http://takingonacause.com/2011/03/28/no-money-to-give-to-charitiestaking-on-a-cause-will-tell-you-can-and-save-money-nate-berkus-features-the-pick-another-checkout-line-ladies-will-show-you-how/ featured on Nate Berkus ,today March 28th 2011. have so many great ideas.
