Stuffed Animals & More for Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 4/9/2016

I stopped by Kmart Wednesday night hoping that their Easter would have gone 90% off and I could find items for my Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, but it wasn't yet, but...I found some stuffed animals I couldn't leave behind, and they were discounted, so 4 came back with me! :)  We Include a Stuffed Animal in Each of Our Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.

I also shopped at CVS this week, and between clearance (there were some of the Dollar Days items in with the Easter items at 75% off), coupons and ECB deals, I got all this for just tax!  For more info on the deals I did, check out my CVS blog!  I plan to put a note on the mirror noting it's unbreakable, for the sake of the checkers at the processing center.  UPDATE:  2017 tootpaste is no longer allowed.

My local Dollar General didn't have any signs up, but was 50% off all Easter, so picked up a couple things for 50 cents a piece:

Family Dollar clearance deals for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.

I ran into a Family Dollar hoping to find some of the 90% off clearance some had found, but my store didn't have any.  I did score these supper cute rabbits on Easter clearance for $0.30 a piece, though!

My mom & sister crocheted 1 hat and attached the "Hand Made with Love tags" they designed.

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $9.89

Spent from gift cards earned or won online: $0.71
