After a few quite shopping weeks, we made up for it this week-haha! Yay for back-to-school deals!
While I was out running errands this week I stopped by Dollar General to take advantage of their $5/$15 stationary deal, there were no signs/ads at my store, but the clerk agreed to try and it worked! The pencils were also on sale for 50 cents: 18 count pencils (tested these and they worked okay, little soft lead, so hard to keep sharp point, but works, and writes very smooth) and 12 count colored pencils (we tested both of these and they seemed to work just fine, not the same as Crayola, but some of us actually preferred them.)
I stopped by Doller Tree to scope out their stock/items for the 10% off and hopefully score one of the 10% coupons. I saw some fun stuff, and found these stickers on clearance-4 for $1, each has 4 sheets, and I'm doing a racing themed box, so some of them are already set aside for that!
I also stopped by Might Dollar and found these manual recharging flashlights.
Spent from shoebox packing budget: $29.85
Spent from gift cards earned or won online: $0
Added to stockpile:
- 100 Notebooks
- 18-12 packs colored pencils
- 216 pencils
- 16 sheets stickers (will probably cut apart into more)
- 3 self charging flashlights
