De-clutter Shopping for Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 4/30/2016

We're in the middle of a spring clean out at our house.  I tend to like to save things-haha!  But, giving them to kids in need thru Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes helps make it easier to pass them on/get rid of them.

Notebooks for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
While cleaning out the we found this lined paper we thought we could do without.  We'd picked it up over the years on back-to-school sales free or for cents.  We realized we haven't been using a much lately.  It's not like back before my sister and I graduated from college, or even just before we all use computers or other technology for keeping notes.  So we really paired it down to just a few in case we need one for something, and the rest we're sending in shoeboxes.  I think we're set for this year's packing of lined paper now between this and what we had left from last year.  You can see how we Fit a Spiral Notebook in an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox.

 These are some things from my private stash.  Cotton gloves I'll never use, some items from when we had Awana at our church, and a cute frog.  Decided I didn't need to hold on to them anymore and maybe some of my 10-14 year old girls would enjoy them!

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $0
