Purge Your Panty for a Good Cause

Friday, May 13th, 2011

Saturday, May 14th is the National Association of Letter Carrier’s ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ Food Drive–a perfect reason to purge your pantry.

Wake up early. Have a protein-packed breakfast. Take a bag to the spot in the house you keep food. Be ruthless. You bought 10 boxes of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese on sale. Can you donate one or two? Thought you were going to make that cake but didn’t? Donate the mix. On a diet? Donate the foods you’re now avoiding.

PURGING is a WIN-WIN situation. You get rid of things that are cluttering your home and others get things they truly need. In this case–food.

My bag is filled and we’ll be putting it on our doorstep a few hours before the mail carrier arrives. My bag has pasta, canned vegetables, and baby food in it. What will you put in YOUR bag?
