How do coupons benefit the consumer? How much money can you save on one shopping trip? These are the questions we are asked to explore in our coupon project. Our coupon project can help Project Help by getting household items we can donate.

Our class is doing a coupon project to see which two stores you can get the most items for free. We want to see which route cost the least amount of gas to help the environment at the same time. Our math teacher is also an extreme coupon-er. She has gotten lots of items for free to donate.

I think Project Help is a good charity because they are trying to get you to do some community work once in a while, and I think that’s good. Also, Project Help gives food and water and everything that you need to survive to the needy, and if everyone has a home, everyone is happy.

We want to do something with all this extra food so what better than to donate it to charity. We are also really glad to be donating to charity. Look at our picture to see some of the items we earned through coupon-ing and are donating.

How can you use coupons to help your community?

    WOW this is amazing how much was donated off of coupon clipping! Way to go kiddos and Mrs. Goucher. I am fascinated by the savings and so happy to hear it is going to those in need. I love the lessons the children are learning to budget and save with cost effective tips of coupons. And of course the gift of giving to those less fortunate.
    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
