I used those ECBs, to buy the items on the left. The candy that is laying down won't be able to be sent next year, but I think there's one more box we're going to send to the processing center this year. The candy that's standing up is "Sell by 8 2017", so I'm saving it along with the rest of the items for next year's boxes. I took the ECBs from the items on the left & bought the toys on the right which were part of the Buy 1 Get 1 Free toy sale, so I ended up getting everything in both picture for under $6!! But....
...I paid that with a CVS gift card I won in a giveaway, so it was actually totally free!! When I entered it, I decided if I won I'd use it toward shoeboxes. Normally I use cards earned on Swagbucks to pay, but now I'm using the Swagbucks points toward other gift cards--like Ebay-for shoeboxes. If you haven't started earning free gift cards from Swagbucks check it out. It is free and easy and they offer dozens of different gift cards. Many shoe box shoppers like to get the Amazon cards.
Have you all found any great additions to your shoe box stockpile this week?
