We haven't had a thread like this for a while and I saw a good quick/easy/cheap care package idea today. Netgrocer.com is having a sale on a few items college kids might like. (Sale ends October 4th)
There are Herrs potato chips for $2 or Herrs oil and vinegar potato chips for $2.33
Keebler chips deluxe cookies for $2.50
Drakes (Cinnamon Streusel) Coffee Cake (cupcakes) for $1.88
Thomas' English Muffins 12-pack for $1.99
Pepperidge Farm Cheese Crisps crackers – 4 Cheese- for $1.99
and - ta-da! - Aqua fresh toothpaste, 5 cents with a ten dollar purchase.
Put about five of the treats together to make it a ten dollar purchase so you can add the nickel toothpaste.
Netgrocer.com uses second day saver rate Fed Ex shipping. If your order is under $25, shipping is $6.99 for most states east of the Mississippi and $9.99 everywhere else in the lower 48 states. A fairly substantial care package in the $17 to $22 range, just a few mouse clicks away. :)
Any other ideas? Mid-terms will be coming up; care packages may be in order.
