Sharing the Blessings

I love to share the deals that I find! I usually do this by donating my excess to our local women's shelter. This morning I had a chance to bless my mom with some extra Downy fabric softner I had gotten at CVS a week or so ago.

We were headed to my parents' house to watch the Ohio State football game. We don't have cable, but my parents do. They invited us to share the game with them. My mom also asked if I could bring her enough fabric softner to do a couple of loads of laundry. She was out and didn't want to make a special trip to the store just for softner. Because of my bargain shopping, I was able to take her an extra bottle of softner I had. My parents do so much for us, and I was thrilled to share a little blessing with them!

I wrote a while back on stockpiling vs. hoarding. Be sure to check out that post and share your own experiences with stockpiling, hoarding, and giving.
