A Time To Give ~ Keep it Clean


I have been super busy all week. Each day has it's schedule. This week I've started some new project which I will reveal in the next few months. But I always make time to give. I go shopping about once a week or less and some days I take my 5 year old with me. She loves to clip coupons with me and look for the products when we go to the store. People stop and stare a while and amazed that she is looking for the item on the picture. She is very detailed and loves to put and keep things in order. I've always taught her to pick up and not litter as well as to help someone when she sees they need help. Well, when we went to the store this week she saw some stockers stocking shelves and bringing in more boxes of stuff. She asked me what they were doing and I told her. Then we heard some commotion and it sounded like something feel. A stocked was dragging some stuff and he clipped a corner of a shelf filled with wipes boxes and some fell from the top. My daughter ran to go help and she was there lifting the big boxes of wipes and stacking them on the crates. There was also some workers around and they didn't go help the poor guy. I walked over and told my little one thank you for helping and I looked up at the stocker and it didn't look like he was going to say thank you. I asked him, "aren't you going to stay thank you?" He did then thanked her. There have been other instances where she helps out an employee.

Keeping the earth clean is a great way to give. The earth is where we live and helps us survive. I just wanted to share that when we recycle and throw trash where it's suppose to be is not just a chore. Be an example for your family and keep it clean.

From Jennifer @ Saving and Giving:
Welcome back to A Time to Give, my weekly feature where we share ways to give, ways to share, ways to be generous. If this is your first time stopping by, welcome! You can read the original A Time to Give post HERE. In a nutshell, I started this feature as a way for us to inspire each other to be even more generous. I tend to get wrapped up in finding great deals, and I don't want to lose sight of one of the reasons we live frugally... to be able to give more. Each week I'll share a giving idea of mine, and you share a giving idea of yours.

Now it's your turn to share your ideas for sharing, giving, and being generous.

  1. I love it when kids jump in to help when they aren't asked! What great role models they can be for the grown-ups around them!!
