Operation Christmas Child: Pencils on Sale

 Yesterday I expressed a need for pencils for the Operation Christmas Child Shoe boxes.  Well, don't you know a visitor to my blog emailed me about a sale at Staples.  They have an 8 pack of pencils for 25 cents.  (Limit of 4)  This is about 3 cents a pencil which is a pretty good deal.

I will be recruiting friends and family to pass by Staples and pick up the pencils.....and it would be great if they went everyday.  Yes, I am serious.   I am figuring that we will need about 60 packs of pencils for the shoe boxes. 

I will be working Staples into  my daily driving routine for the rest of the week :)
