OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 7/7/2018 ~ Great Deals-Saved 85%

I was able to get some pretty good deals for shoeoxes this week!  First I got some nice clearance at Hobby Lobby-some 66% off summer, plus a couple craft kits more like 95% off!

I went to a thrift store, I was able to get some new games, a math kit whose packaging was pretty messed up and missing a few pieces, but the 4 pieces that were there were really cute and unused, so I'll take them out and send them.  Also, a like new stuffed that I just couldn't pass up-too cute!!

I went to Bargain Hunt-nothing too exciting, but did pick up a few fidget spinners-I know there's some controversy about these, but these ones seemed study, and I'll only put them in the oldest kids boxes.

I stopped at Big Lots to pick up some of the $0.17 notebooks-I was able to use the $5/$15 coupon I'd gotten for signing up to their loyalty program.
