@cjwoody Wow, I wonder how many life times of toothpastes would that be? I think it’s a good idea to pair up candies with toothpaste, though. Maybe add dental floss, too? Wait - sometimes, those are more expensive than a toothpaste!
@Xiao It’s actually all going overseas to be donated. I have been filling this 24 x 18 x 24 box since May. This is where all the freebies and moneymakers go - the items I won’t use, that is. Just need to sort the items into smaller boxes and send this baby off! No clue how much it weighs, but I know can’t lift it by myself.
This is my box for my local "food" bank. The air quotes is because they distribute lots more than just food. Good part is I just have to get it in my Prius and drive about 7 miles. I go through my stash and if I have too much of something, I put extras in the box (I check the expiration dates and keep the old stuff for us). This works for me. Husband sometimes thinks he wants to keep some snack items but generally he forgets about them. So I pack those up too.
You'll be able to tell by the kids reaction if they like it or not. I usually give out full size candy bars. One year I ran out of candy bars so I gave out cans of soup. I'm sure a lot of the Mom's thought I was cuckoo. Lol 😂
