Saved about 90% on OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 12/16/2017

We finally got all of our Cyber Monday order-notebooks for a quarter, compasses for 50 cents, and a building toy for a dollar!




I also found socks buy 1 get 3 free at Might Dollar-so 4 for a dollar!  They're really cute and fun!  They are fold over dress socks like I had when I was a little girl, but with little flower or butterful bead charms.  Plus a couple other things.





I also got some bar soap free after coupons (love having $6/$3 email coupons when I have other items to get) and ECBs.





 I also ordered from EAI education after seeing it suggested on the Pencil Granny Facebook page.  Got a few fun things to try out-I think I'll do a review post.





My mom and sister have also been getting crafting done, and I haven't been keeping up on sharing photos!  Hats and tote bags!





Spent from shoebox packing budget: $37.27 

Spent from gift cards earned or won online: $31 

Saved $538.98 or 89%

Saved thru Buy 1 Get 3 sale:  $27 
Saved through CVS deals: $11.98 
Saved through Hollar Black Friday deals: $500  

...plus the un-calculated savings through crafting!

I do not know what Hollar is. Is it on line? I do not have many stores to choose from in my area, so I am really scratching my head! Also, can I ask how much your shoebox budget is? I have no idea what I am doing, but I figure that any extra boxes that I can do is better than nothing. Your posts are very helpful. Thank-you
Chris

Chris - yes, Hollar is online; here's a post I wrote about it earlier: http://www.simplyshoeboxes.com/2017/01/hollar-product-reviews.html . We don't have many stores in our area, either, so that 's one reason I like it. Don't worry about having no idea, we're all learning as we go and every box helps!! Last year it worked out to about 6 dollars per box, plus $9 shipping, so about $15, but it all depends on what deals you find, if others come alongside with crafting, etc. I'm glad you find it helpful!

Lisa-that's great!
