OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 9/16/2017

My Dad & I both got a chance to double check CVS's 75% off clearance for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.

Workbooks and coloring books from CVS 75% off clearance to pack in Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
Dad found lots of activity books I'd missed somehow-haha!

And I found these t-shirts and dishcloths I'd missed (or maybe they had in back, and just got put out).  Also the Lakers pads and pens I'd passed on because we're Cleveland fans, and I didn't think my family would be in to them, then I got thinking they'd make great fillers for Pencil Granny and Friends.  Operation Christmas Child says they have an urgent need for school supply fillers.

I made one up for a test...I think it turned out pretty cute!!  I'm waiting to make the rest until after we pack our shoeboxes and see what all we have left.

We always include stuffed animals in our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.

My sister also found these like-new stuffed animals for 50 cents a piece from a local thrift store-some still had tags on!!  We include a stuffed animal in each Operation Christmas Child shoebox we pack.

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $26.96
