The Countdown Is On: 116 Days

That's the number of days that you have until the collection week starts for the 2013 Operation Christmas Child Shoebox season!

Are you ready? Are you shopping? 
Are you preparing to change the life of a child?

If you're asking: WHAT CAN I DO?
If you're thinking: IT'S ONLY JULY... I HAVE PLENTY OF TIME!
If you're worried: I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO HELP.

July is now the official start of all the back-to-school sales! 

For $0.25 you can find: crayons, notebooks, stickers, and packets of kleenex

For $0.50: pencils, pens, pencil sharpeners, and 3 x 5 index cards

For $0.75: Colored pencils and rulers

For $1.00: calculators, pencil boxes & reusable shopping bags (to tote the stuff to school)

July is also the height of summer clearance!

Pay close attention to end-cap sales and clearance stickers, and remember that you're looking for items for Girl/Boy ages 2-4, 5-9, 10-14, including:

T-shirts
Shorts
Sundresses (keep it modest)
Flip-flops
Sunglasses
Floppy hats and baseball hats


So what are you waiting for? Take advantage of summer sales, clearance deals, and a little planning ahead to stretch your dollars and fill your 2013 shoebox(es)!!
