Angel Tree Gift . . . How I Made My Dollars Stretch So I Could Buy More!

I picked up an Angel off the Tree. It was my goal to see how much I could get this 4th grade boy while I watched my budget at the same time! 
I got this fleece zip up and 2 pack of slipper socks at JC Penney using the $10 off $10 coupon . . . my total was only $3.13!
I got a Rad Bandz bracelet-thingy using a $5 off $5 coupon at Hallmark . . . making it FREE! (There are $5 off $5 coupons floating around in many popular magazines such as the December issues of Family Circle, Southern Living, Martha Stewart Living, Redbook, and Oprah Magazine!)
 The toothpaste was in my stash and was a FREEBIE!
The Spiderman Spinbrush was a deal at Walgreen's last week and turned out to be about $2!
The Nerf football came from Ollie's Bargain Outlet (there's a regional coupon for 20% off a toy in the paper not sure of the date/insert!) . . . after the coupon it was only $5.99!
Right now I am at about $11. I am not completely done with the whole package yet (I'll throw in some other freebies, like candy and such and I will also pick up something educational!), but I just wanted to give you an idea of how you can do some good in this world and still stick to a budget!
How do you "do good" while watching your dollars? Do you donate your time? Do you donate other items? Please share some ideas!
