After finding out about a great clearance sale that Michael's was having on Flip Flops, I managed to find a total of 124 flip flops at an average cost of $28.52 for all of them. That is an average cost of 23 cents each. (The average cost includes tax and other discounts) Woo Hoo!
These items will be going into Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. If you remember, I am planning (with the help of friends) we are going to put together at least 100 boxes!!
The chalk was only 10 cents a pack.
The Flowers are on clips. I thought they were bright and cheery! Only 20 cents each!
These are cute felt totes to go in the shoe boxes. Only about 18 cents each. Wish I could have found more of these!
This is my stash of Crayons and erasers. I missed the back to school sales, so I am stocking up as I go along.
These are bags of 12 erasers for your pencils. Each bag was only a nickel. It was a special deal at Office Depot. I probably have about 50 bags of them. I will split them up and put them in the sheoboxes.
That is about it for Operation Christmas Child shopping thus far. The total is at $37.61 cents. And it looks like I am going to need a separate category in my budget for this alone. I may use some of my eBay earnings to fund filling the shoeboxes. Or as Louise suggested, install a button so others can contribute to alleviate the costs.
Our biggest need right now is Pencils. We have none. Keep that need in your prayers :)
Addendum: Just found out Staples has 8 paks of pencils for a quarter. Limit 4!
