I stopped by Office Max/Depot to pick up the battery deal ($0.01 after reward points) and due to another shoeboxer's suggestion, I checked for compasses & protractors in the normal clearance area-they didn't have prices on them, but an associate scanned them for me and they were $0.24 for the plastic ones and $0.42 for the metal compass. Then I found more clearance in the teacher supply aisle-LOTS of pens and scissors (above my budget at the moment). I needed some red pens for this upcoming year, and as $0.33 per 10 pack, so I picked up some.
My mom and sister also crocheted another 7 hats!
Spent from shoebox packing budget: $31.89 (I hope to get $27.98 rewards back on the batteries, if not, I may return them)
Added to stockpile:
- 32 AA batteries (we already have flashlights to go with them
- 30 red pens
- 2 compasses
- 1 protacter
- 7 crocheted hats
