Blessing Bags

As a couponer, I often get items for free or for pennies on the dollar. Sometimes, the items that I get are travel size. I usually hold on to these items and use them when we travel, or I donate them to the food bank.
Last week, I came up with the idea to pack little bags full of my travel items and let P, who drives around all the time carry them in his car. When he passes someone on the side of the road, who is in need, he can give this bag to them, and hopefully be a blessing.
It's not much, but it is a small gesture to be a blessing to someone else.
