OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 10/28/2017

We've pretty much finished packing for the year, but are getting a start on supplies for next year's shoebox packing.

I stopped at a store to pick up a few of these nice sturdy Frisbees!  Funny story...the store didn't have power, but the owner said I could come in and she'd give me a flashlight if I had cash and knew what I wanted.  Well, I did on both counts, so in a went, and got the Frisbees! 

We got a $5 off $15 coupon in the email for Big Lots.  My sister and I walked around looking at different things, finally wandered over to hygiene items and saw these tweezers, 2 for $1!  It'd been on my heart to add to the older kids' boxes for splinters, etc.  So, I got all they had plus a couple manicure sets to get up to $15.  I'll probably split up the manicure sets between a couple boxes.

Finally, we got this GREAT donation of stuffed animals!   We needed some more for the packing party with the kids at church, and this filled that need!  Such a blessing! 

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $16.44 

Spent from gift cards earned or won online: $0
