OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 8/25/2018 ~ A month's worth of shopping

Well, with getting back from vacation I'm a bit behind on sharing my shoeboxes finds!  While I was on vacation I was able to pick up some sports team themed items from "back home".

I also found some random items fun little items on a shopping trip.  Magnifying glass to check out (didn't like it) truck puzzle for car themed box, couple penguins for a penguin themed box, couple plastic craft kits for older girls, and a little book about rose types-lots of pretty pictures to look at!

At Dollar Tree I saw a car "Lego" type toy at Dollar Tree, and as I liked Legos as a kid and am planning car themed shoeboxes in memory of my uncle this year, I picked up a couple, then I went to CVS & found a car with blocks inside it on clearance-I plan to stick the two building kits inside it, plus probably one of the girl ones I got later at Dollar General.

I received 2 cartons of the new pre-printed cardboard shoeboxes from OCC-hope to post a report on them soon..

I ordered a package of the soap cases-under $20-so much cheaper than other sources.

I had gotten a $10 gift card from Oriental Trading, thankfully they had free shipping on any order, so I found some clearance items (dozen mugs, 2 dozen bags), plus a cup to get up to $10...ended up being on the dot-so didn't spend anything!

I also got to a Dollar General for the 50% off clearance sale...a couple things I found even ended up having been there so long they were only a penny!

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $32.82
Saved $65.98  or   67%
Plus some of the items were donated, and the soap cases not bought in bulk would have been quite a bit more.

Saved thru clearance at Oriental Trading:  $22.99 
Saved through OT gift card: $10
Saved through OT free shipping: $6.99
Saved through Dollar General Clearance:  $26
