OCC Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 12/7/2018 ~ Donations and Deals

We got a good amount of supplies for our shoebox packing supplies this week, but didn't spend much due to donations, clearance, and crafting!

Some friends picked us up some cars at Big Lots for us-Hot Wheels and pull back cars.

Got more of the Cow Bells on clearance at US Toy-$3.95 for a dozen here's the link for the orange ones, you can search for the other colors...really happy with them as musical toy!! 

My sister had to buy a couple gifts which came to $10, so used my $5 off $15 coupon to pick up washcloths for free.  Plus at a party $5 gift exchange she got a scarf she plans to pack in a shoebox.

Finally some great items crafted by my mother and sister:  pencil bagstote bag, and Aunt Ida Hats.

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $41.74 

Saved $110.40 or 72% through clearance

You're way ahead of me in the next years stash gathering. We've found no good clearances here at all. I'm sewing some small square pouches in a sweet winter fabric print of delicate deer and rabbits on pale grey and rosy beige snow background for Christmas gifts (for my wonderful mail carrier & friends.) Inside they'll find a Stacked set of stretchy bracelets that I've strung. So shoe box sewing is on the side line until New Years.
