U.S. Toy Order for OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 6/25/2016

I placed my first order from U.S.Toy this week for our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  Here's what I got:

U.S. Toy purchase for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
That's just the overview, I plan to post photos of the individual items with reviews.

I also had some ECB from CVS from previous shoebox purchases that I needed to use up before they expired, so I picked up this t-shirt, $2.50-nice soft fabric, hopefully they'll still have some left if/when they go on clearance.

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $15.93

Spent from gift cards we have earned or won online: $52.06

Added to stockpile:
  • 1 T-shirt
  • 1 foldable Nylon Kite w/Pouch
  • 6 jump ropes
  • 5 dozen "activity packs"
