Coupon mom & son make care packages for homeless

image image imageCouponing mom, Amanda Hayes and her 8-year old son, Jakob have a special hobby.  They shop with coupons to save on care package items for the homeless.  Amanda shared a older picture of her ever-growing stockpile, “This is where we get stuff for our packages. It has grown, but that was a couple months ago!”

Amanda’s care packages include items such as bottled water, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner (little hotel size), bar soap, mouth wash, cough drops, aspirin, cereal bar, and a granola bar… with Jakob’s special contribution, gum.

“He drew pictures [on the care packages], around Thanksgiving and Christmas time! I thought it was so sweet of him!”, said the proud mom.
