* September First Moo News

Formula donations - thanks to Smurf a great couponer

Have you been missing cow puns and jokes and silly cow photos? Don't despair ... there's another cow headed your way. We're on cow #13 - Belaphron and at $256.00 so it won't be long before we get to 24 - 2 dozen cows. Moo hoo!

Yes I'm still buying cows AND collecting bottles as well as selling the odd thing or two on Kijiji. Today I sold two of the Culligan water bottles for $2. Steal of deal I'd say.

On Kijiji I have a cute chaise lounge dog bed for sale and 19 beginner piano books. The items for sale are eclectic for sure but every bit helps with the cow.

My experiment with using coupons to raise funds for the cow turned out to be a Giving-Tiny adventure. I've raised $200 (2/3 of a cow) so it works but it'll take a year to get a cow. It turns out that donating locally is way easier with coupons and I have only dipped once into the bottles I personally contribute to the cow (about $25 in total) to help with donating. It helped me up the learning curve.

My latest local donation (in the photo above) to the Homeless Drop-In is for formula for four moms who can't breastfeed due to health reasons. Thanks two generous coupon donations from Kay and Smurf I was able to buy this formula for less than $10 for all 4 cans.
