Obviously, our family can't possibly use all this toothpaste, body wash, deodorant, etc in one month, so you may wonder what I do with all the extra personal care items I get. I donate them to charity. I try to collect 5 basic items for a local women's shelter: shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, and soap or body wash. I like that my overages have a purpose and a goal. The women's shelter appreciates the donations.
