Food Pantry & Priority Mail

June 15th, 2010 at 03:16 pm

I sent the Priority Mail box to Afghanistan. The Post Mistress asked my if I want the box back if it was rejected. I didn't want to pay priority mail fees to get it back. She informed me that my 12.50 fee to send it covered the return trip also. I didn't know that so I asked that it be returned if rejected. Also, using the APO/FPO Priority Mail box saved me over $4. So, if you send a package request the APO/FPO box. And, it can weight anything, it just a straight fee, whether 1 lb or 20 lbs.

Food Pantry Donation:

24 1 Liter bottles of Water
48 ct of Maxi Pads for Women
30 ct size 5 diapers
52 ct size 4 diapers
40 ct size 6 diapers
8 Zatarain's Rice
2 French's Honey Mustard Sauce
6 Kraft Mac & Cheese
2 boxes Betty Crocker Sweet Potatoes
1 box Kelloggs Corn Flakes
4 pkg of 48 rolaids
4 single use Tide detergent
2 Sure Deodorant

I'm really excited. My brother dropped off a 5 drawer filing cabinet. Now I can file my coupon inserts.

I'm off to the food pantry drop.

    Did you adopt a soldier, or are you sending to a family member?

    I adopted a Marine Corps group of 8 men and 5 women (I'm not allowed to call a Marine a soldier). My son doesn't leave for Afghanistan until August.

    Nice! Getting free stuff, and passing it on is a great idea. Kudos to you.

    My brother was in Iraq in 1991 and 1992. He very much appreciated care packages we sent him with non-perishable food and other items from home. Just curious, what do they use diapers for?
