Back in April of 2010, I posted this question – “How Many Tubes of Toothpaste Do You Really Need?”
This, in my opinion, is a very good question to ask yourself when you begin your couponing journey. Once you start couponing, you come to realize rather quickly that scoring free or nearly free toothpaste is one of the easiest things to do… however, you will also realize rather quickly that building up a large stockpile of toothpaste can happen overnight. AND once this happens, the light bulb will go on – it definitely did for me!
I suddenly realized I was capable of helping others in a BIG way and I didn’t need a large budget to do it. It really is one of the greatest gifts we couponers can give. It’s not just about the free toothpaste we can give to someone who desperately needs it… it’s about the act itself. The simple act of kindness – exactly what this world needs. Just think of all the lives you can touch in such a positive way. I also believe that giving to others motivates them to want to do the same – which makes the giving effect continue to spread.

On a side note, I want to open up this post to all of you. I’d love to hear how you share your abundance. I’d also love to hear what couponing has done for you… how your life has changed. I never anticipated how amazing this frugal journey of mine would become and now, well, it has definitely surpassed all of my expectations.
