Carolyn, the original post is here, but that’s the gist of it… saving spare change for purchasing preps.
Anonymous and Maria, if you’re interested in using your spare change for this, think about Carolyn’s suggestion, and save up all year and spend it then. Or if you have a friend or neighbor that’s ordering, see if you can tack your items onto their order and divide the shipping costs between you.
Another option is to see if there’s a group nearby that places a group order each month. See if you can join the group and add your small number of items once the group order has met the free shipping requirement.
Good point about the shipping, are there free shipping codes or what are you doing about paying for shipping on these tiny orders?
I must have missed the original post. What a great idea to save change to pay for preps. I emptied out my change jar just last month, but I think I’ll start doing this. Maybe I’ll save for the rest of the year and spend the change on preps then. Great idea!
That’s all well and good sounding, until you go to checkout and the basic shipping and handling charge is $6.
