      Jenny – Thank you for posting Operation Christmas Child items.  We have decided that since we have 3 kids, we will do at least 3 boxes this year.  Your posts will help us to pack our boxes full & we may be able to do more than 3.

      If you haven’t done a shoebox for this cause before, please consider doing one this year.  Your small tokens will be such a blessing to a child somewhere in the world.  If you pay your $7 shipping fee online, you can track your shoebox this year and see which country it goes to!

    • Heather

      Thanks for this list!  Another helpful idea – visit your local craft store!  I went on my lunch break today and they had their entire kids isle of toys/misc. items (crayons, markers, writing pads, disposable cameras, toy cars, planes, stickers) for 1 cent – 25 cents.  As far as I know this is undadvertised, but I was able to fill 2 huge carts full of stuff for OCC during my lunchbreak today!  Dollar General also has all of their summer/Spring items 70% off right now.. great way to save!

    • Heather

      Also, the dollar tree has flashlights and 12ct boxes of batteries for $1 :) 
      Walmart has 18ct washclothes for $4

      I was in Michael’s yesterday and they had a bunch of their $1 toys marked down to .25 and .50. I got lots of hairbows, pencils, pens, and small toys.

      • Heather

        I went their during my lunch today – got everything from 1 cents to 25 cents!  :)

      I would like to also encourage everyone to volunteer at a Operation Christmas Child distribution center.  It is another opportunity to help this wonderful cause….AND..you will have a blast!  Space goes quickly when spots open up  so plan now for next year.  We have volunter every year at the Atlanta center and have served as a family as well as with my son’s baseball team. Great opportunity for groups, missions and families.

      Remember to check the web site to know what is not allowed.  They do not allow liquids, chocolate and other perishable items.  These items can ruin the whole box and possibly other boxes.  We have worked sorting boxes for many years and it is sad to see what has to be taken from the boxes (they do reuse the items at local charities).  It is heartwarming to think of the smile some child will have on his face when he opens his box.

    • Each of my kids (3) makes a box every year for their age group, this year I’m making a teenage girl box too! Our boxes are already almost filled! Yay! We put a bunch of school supplies in when back to school sales were on, and got some fun toys from the Target clearance areas a few months back and in January. I start the new boxes the moment we send the old ones out! My kids have fun doing them, but this year our four year olds really got into it when I told them the boxes go to children who don’t have as many nice things as they do :) I put the free jewelry and make up bags I get from Hip2Save’s deals in the girl’s box, and we have such a good time looking for deals under a dollar to add to the boy boxes! So far I have spent $11.32 on four boxes!
