The retail value of this donation to nursing homes around me is $675, but I paid $0! Well, I paid no tax on the meters, though I'm assuming I paid some tax on the Poise, so that was it! I spent no money on the coupons for the Poise or Depends, and I only paid $2.00 on Ebay for the meter coupons!

One Touch Ultra Mini Meters
Poise Liners
Depends

Thank you! I've never donated to a nursing home before, so I'm pretty excited about this one!

that is awesome. I so need your guys tips.

But I also refuse to pay for coupons. to me that is not saving because you have to add in that cost.

Yeah, I don't mind paying if it's a great price. I got 40 $10.00/1 coupons for only $2.00. Even when you add that into the end price, it's so worth it to me. I think that ends up being .05 per meter.
