School Supply Bonanaza for OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday OCC ~ 8/19/2017

This is actually a few week's worth of stockpiling for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes as I've been on vacation.  While I was on vacation, my family sewed a lot of these reversible pencil cases for the church packing party.

They also made me a lot of these coloring books and sketch pads.

My aunt came for a visit and brought all these goodies plus some more crayons.

Got some good deals at Office Depot.

Got some clearance jacks at CVS

Some cute sharpeners for $0.10 each at Dollar General



Some fun items at Mighty Dollar...note, I wouldn't recommend the train puzzle, it didn't seem real sturdy, especially considering it'd probably be best for the littlest kids

Picked some school supplies up at Walgreens, not the best prices ever, but I needed a few more things.

I don't need more geometry supplies this year, but this was real cute, so I splurged on it...



Some more deals we got at Office Depot...before I left for vacation,  I like the composition books as they have soft covers, easy to bend over in the boxes,  plus, unlike notebooks it also has things like multiplication tables in the back-a great bonus!

I tried out Bargain Hunt.  The shirt was $3 summer clearance-perfect for my annual penguin theme box.  Also, a couple cute little boxes.  I'm planning to make one into a girly hygiene kit, the other into a sewing/craft/art kit.


 Finally, I was really excited about this radio/flashlight combo we got in the mail!  I'd just seen the shoebox story: Dania -and- A Radio.  Great fun thing to put in a shoebox!
