Donating Travel Size Items

Ronald McDonald House (RMHC) is one of the charities that I love to donate my extras to. When I was a kid, my brother was a patient at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, so I know just how much these small items can mean to a family. RMHC offers families complimentary snacks, laundry detergent, and toiletries, but they depend on donations for these items.

Travel size items are frequently FREE after coupon, so it’s really easy to throw some of these extra items in your cart. I also save free samples that I receive in the mail and travel size items from hotels for . See a full list of requested items HERE. This list is for the St. Louis area, but please contact your local if you are interested in donating.

I would estimate that I spent a total of $5 for everything in the two pictures below. It’s amazing how powerful coupons are. Just by picking up a few extra items each time I shop, I can really make a difference in someone’s life. That’s pretty amazing for only $5. I encourage you to seek out your own charity and make a difference with your couponing skills.

    Do you drop of your donations at their Park Ave address or is there another location?

    My office was sponsoring a "shower" for their new house at St. John's Hospital at 40 & Ballas, so I just took everything to work. I haven't dropped any donations off at the actual locations yet. I would call the location you are closest to and ask when is the best time/place to leave donations.
