Busy bee, but with nothing to show for it!

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.

Hmmm, never thought of putting condensed milk in my coffee. Might have to give that a try.

Love what you put together to send north.

God bless.

What a great box of goodies.

I wished that I had business account so I can send a package.

When I was a kid and we did not have a cow giving milk, we used condensed milk in our coffee. I had not thought of that in years. That is such a good deal to be able to send free the one day. Wow, I would never have dreamed of paying that much for a cakemix....but then I have no idea what they cost now. Everything is climbing and climbing in price. I could not believe what I paid for a chuck roast the other day. Used to I could have bought at least two and possibly a 3 for what i paid for one.
