If you're an avid gum chewer and work in an office or other group setting, you're probably used to people often approaching you asking for a stick of gum. Of course, as nice people we're ready to share, but when the same people keep asking day after day after day you kind of want to say, “Hey – buy your own pack of gum!”. But, in all seriousness, sharing your gum is fun, an easy way to be a nice person, and now easier than ever with the new Extra® 35-stick pack. You heard that right – a pack with 35 sticks!
Not only does the new Extra® 35-stick pack offer you more gum, it also features durable, recycled packaging. I love that sturdy case for both keeping my gum fresh AND protecting it from bumps and bends when it jostles around in my purse or backpack.
I headed to Target to pick up Extra® Gum Spearmint and Extra® Gum Polar Ice® in the new Extra® 35-stick packs. Right now there is an awesome Target Cartwheel Coupon Offer to save 10% on new Extra® 35-stick packs during February! I found it right in the checkout lanes.
My office is now at home, so I don't have to share my Extra® gum with anyone, but my hubby is a regular gum chewer and works in the sharing environment of an office every day. For a way for him to “Give Extra, Get Extra” with his co-workers, I made a way for him to share with his co-workers and at the same time get some extra help for those in need with this DIY Take One, Leave One Jar. With this jar on his desk, people in the office can take a stick of Extra® gum any time they want, but are also urged to leave a coin to help a worthwhile organization.
DIY Take One, Leave One Jar
2 Small Glass Jars
Dry Erase or Chalkboard Labels
Dry Erase Marker or Chalk
Extra® 35-stick Pack
The DIY Take One, Leave One Jar is super easy to put together.
Affix one label to each jar. Try to smooth out the bubbles as much as you can. (No need to be perfect – it's the thought that counts!)
Use the marker or chalk (depending on the type of label you're using) and write a phrase like “Take a piece….Leave a coin” on one label. Use the other label to write what charity will be receiving the coins collected.
Fill the “take a piece” jar with sticks from the Extra® 35-stick pack. Place both jars right next to each other on desk. (You might want to put a few coins in the coin jar to get the ball rolling! (I suggest quarters.)
