The Samaritan’s Purse Bloggers submitted a challenge! We were challenged to think ahead and shop for our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes now, while shopping the back to school sales!
Details of the Back to School Challenge:
~ Commit to devoting $10 of your back-to-school shopping for your Operation Christmas Child shoebox?
~ Shop, save, and store up all of your back-to-school shoebox goodies!
~ Write up a blog post sharing your finds and link up on August 28th to show how you were able to stretch your $10.
Our OCC Back to School Purchases:
We accepted the challenge and here are some of the items that my family purchased to add to our OCC boxes! I snagged boxes of 24 count pencils from Target for $1.24 each.
After searching around ToysRus, we were able to find Crayola 24 count crayons for only a quarter a box!
We even cashed in on 10 count packs of pens from Office Depot for 10 cents a pack!
We also found a few more goodies from the Dollar Tree (not pictured) to round out our $10 challenge!
Did you participate in the challenge?
