Cards for a Cause **UPDATE**

OK so I know I said I would buy "guy" stuff with the rest of the money, but I heard this weekend that there is a distribution center in Cullman, AL running dangerously low on non-perishable food items.
So since there is a need there, I went the food route instead!
Now I am sure that all you couponing gurus out there could have bought an entire Publix, but I was pretty stoked about what I was able to get with the $155 I had left to spend from the cards yall bought!
I did hit up 3 different stores in search of the best deals:
Publix (for some buy 1, get 1 free deals & cereal on sale), Dollar General (twice! so I could use their $5 off if you spend $25 coupon more than once), & Wal-Mart (because I just feel like everything is cheaper at Wal-Mart).
And this is what I got!
{it looks like so much more on my kitchen table!!}
10 packs of spaghetti
8 cans of spaghetti sauce
5 big cans of baked beans
10 boxes of Hamburger Helper
15 boxes of Kraft mac & cheese
5 jars of peanut butter
10 cans of chicken
15 cans of tuna
5 family-sized of green beans
5 family-sized cans of peaches
5 family-sized cans of pears
15 cans of different Progresso soups
& 4 8-fun packs of various cereals

Thank you all who donated and bought cards!!
Hopefully there are going to be some fuller stomachs in the Cullman area soon!
:)
THANKS!!!
