Isn't it always the way, you feel like you have never stopped, but honestly have nothing to show for it?
One thing I was doing today was putting together a box of food to send up north to a food bank. During the month of October, Canada Post has had a special where a business can send a box under 5kg anywhere in Canada for free on a Tuesday. So the last couple of Tuesday's I sent a box of Evan's new born clothing up that he had grown out of. They were in perfect condition; in fact a couple of the pieces I am sure hadn't even been worn.
This week I decided to put together a box of food.
Now it may look like an odd combination of items, but there is a reason behind the things I popped in. I had the cake mixes and frosting in the cupboard. I won't be using them before they expire next year. They cost a small fortune up north; I think around $9 each, so they are classed as a luxury. I popped some sprinkles in, because who doesn't love a cake with sprinkles!! They always need spices, and sugar. Due to the weight, I just popped in the small packets of sugar. I also had a can of condensed milk, that I know some people put in their coffee, so figured that should go as well.
If anyone has a business account with Canada Post and wants to send a free box up north and would like a contact address please let me know. You will have to print out a shipping label tomorrow to take advantage of the deal. I will give you details of where to send too and what they would like. Tea and honey are things they love.
