If you are not familar with Operation Christmas Child, you can read about it here:
Now is a good time to buy some items for the shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, if that is something you do each year or would like to do this year.
The school supplies are on sale everywhere and will be for another month or so.
This week at Walgreens I purchased, with the store coupons you tear out of the weekly sales paper, packages of end cap erasers for .19, crayons (24 ct.) for .29, small memo books for 8 for $1.00. Pencils (10ct.)would have been .19 too, but I couldn't find any at the store I visit.
I have been collecting items all year, starting with the after Christmas sales. Sometimes I have bought Happy meals and saved the toys for the shoeboxes. You just have to be careful that the toy is appropriate.
This helps me to work on the goal to the left, Planning Christmas!
