Mighty Dollar Shopping for OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 2/11/2017

I had a great visit to Mighty Dollar this week for my Operation Christmas Child stockpile...found Valentines packs in a BOGO cart-worked out to 32 pencils for $1!!!  Then I found a 20 pack of pencils I thought I'd try (I'm hoping to do a pencil test soon like our crayon test), some fishing bobbers/floats for fishing kits, a "Lego" type kit for a dinosaur theme box I hope to do.  Finally, when I was about to leave I saw the toothbrushes in someone's cart and realized I'd forgot to look, so I went and got some of them...you can see my review of them here.

Mighty Dollar deal shopping for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.

I also found this game I was going to possibly send in a care package to a family member in the armed services, but his tour is up, and I never sent it, so now it'll go to shoebox packing...



I also received my free sample of Poise I saw on Shoeboxes on a Shoestring on Facebook, which I mainly wanted for this cute case for shoeboxes.  Not quite long enough to put more than a couple pencils in, but it'll be cute for something and the only place it says "Poise" is embossed on the zipper pull.



Spent from shoebox packing budget: $18.15

Added to stockpile:
  • 180 pencils
  • 80 toothbrushes
  • 20 bobbers for fising kits
  • 1 Lego type kit
  • 1 Peg game
  • 1 zippered case
Wondering how we keep our stockpile until packing time?  Check out our  Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Stockpile Organization posts.  You'll see we've changed it over the years.
