Money is a bit on the short side for us -- it's a common condition these days. By the time we make our regular donation to our church, there doesn't seem to be much left to support other charities. But this doesn't stop my family from trying to make a difference. When we all join together, even the least of us can make a big difference with the smallest of efforts. I volunteer a great deal of time as a PTA board member at my children's school. I also collect Box Tops for Education, Campbell's Soup labels, MyCokeReward codes, used juice pouches, used inkjet cartriges and register our loyalty cards with local merchants who donate a percentage of our spending -- all for the benefit of our school. In addition, our family diligently saves soda can tabs that go to our area Ronald McDonald House. They use the proceeds of recycling the tabs to offset their expenses thereby allowing families to focus on the health and wellbeing of their critically ill children. While all these small things don't cost any extra dollars, when they are combined with the efforts of others, they make a very real monetary difference. I always try to pick up a few items for our church's food pantry too and using coupons helps me make the most of the few dollars we have to spare.
