Texas Woman Puts Her Couponing Addiction To Good Use By Donating To Hurricane Harvey Victims

Morgan is a writer on the branded content team who loves breakfast food almost as much as she loves dogs.

Kimberly Gager has helped families with everything from toilet paper to shampoo, and the recipients of these goods are beyond grateful.

“I just had the pleasure of meeting a lady and her teenage daughters to get stuff,” Kimberly wrote on Facebook. “Let me tell y’all, when I opened that container of razors, it was game over. I’ve never witnessed teenagers so excited about razors in my life. They had been sharing ONE razor between them!”

Even though Kimberly has more than enough supplies to go around, recipients of her generosity are reluctant to take more than the bare minimum.

“You can tell they were grateful and just wanted the minimum supplies because they only asked for one body wash each,” Kimberly wrote. “ONE! I wanted to load them down with toilet paper and paper towels.”

With no young children of her own, Kimberly normally throws away coupons for baby supplies, but in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, she has been saving them up to purchase much-needed diapers and other baby items.


“I said, you know what? I can put these coupons to good use,” Kimberly said. “I don’t have babies, so I usually throw those away. But I can go buy this stuff for [the hurricane survivors] and put it to good use.”

Kimberly’s neighbors and friends are so impressed with what she’s doing that they’ve even started to give her money to go shopping for goods.

“As long as the donations keep coming, I’ll keep buying,” Kimberly wrote on Facebook.

In light of Hurricane Irma, which ravaged Florida and parts of the southeast, Kimberly even reached out on Facebook in case any evacuees made it to Texas.

“This is a stretch, but anybody know of Irma evacuees in the San Antonio area? Tell them to hit my inbox,” Kimberly wrote on her Facebook page.

With so many families still unable to return home or even without a home to return to, Kimberly doesn’t plan to stop couponing and giving back for a while.

“I don’t plan to cut it off until I know that people are OK,” said Gager. “Something as small as a bottle of body wash, stick of deodorant or a tube of toothpaste, I know how that felt during Hurricane Floyd, and people are so grateful for that.”
