A Fishy Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 2/20/2016

Here's what we added to our Operation Christmas Child shoebox packing stash this week.  Starting off with a school of magnifying fish.

Oriental Trading Co. magnifying fish for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
 My mom had a birthday recently, and I got her these for her 2-4 year old girl boxes with the Oriental Trading Company free shipping on any order deal they had.

I found these on clearance at Rite Aid for $1.24-they had a lot of safety & emergency supplies 75% off-I thought these were great as they're sunglasses plus they were safety glasses, thought they'd go well with the tools we bought for the 10-14 boy boxes recently.

We went through our fabric & button stash and here's some of what we decided we didn't need, hope to add extra supplies to the sewing kits we have.

A dollar store was having a buy 2 get 1 free deal, so we picked up these things for less than $5.

Office Depot had the get a pack of batteries for $0.01 after the rewards come back in a month or so, so we got some more, we should be set now.

Another handmade hat with the "Hand Made with Love tags"  attached .

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $35.47 (hope to get $27.96 back)

Spent from gift cards earned or won online: $0

Added to stockpile:
  • 6 fish kaleidoscope prisms 
  • 1 safety/sun glasses
  • Fabric
  • Buttons
  • 9 sets toddler utensils 
  • 1 chess game (will probably add buttons so it can double for checkers)
  • 1 3d dino puzzle
  • 1 bag/organizer
  • 32 AA batteries
  • 1 had
