This is a big update so I’m just going to run down everything quickly.
The hat, shirts and hair accessories were fillers at Walgreens I used RR on – so they were free. The coloring book was on clearance at CVS and I paid with ECBs so it was free too.
All the Roseart supplies were FREE at Target with a super awesome sale and coupons a couple weeks ago. I have enough crayons for this year AND next!
The pens were FREE with overage after a coupon at Publix and the overage paid for the pencils. More FREE items.
The Moon Dough is one of my largest single item purchases, it was $1.32 on clearance at Target. I hope it doesn’t blow my budget. ;)
The Disney princess sticker/coloring set was $0.75.
The yellow book and two pink books cost me $3.00.
The rulers and gluesticks were $0.28 total.
So for this lot of stuff, I spent $5.35. Add that to the $7.08 I’ve already spent and my total is $12.43. My budget is $60 for 6 boxes but each box requires a $7 shipping donation. So that’s $42 of my budget. Which means I only have $18 to spend on items.
Fortunately, with the items I’ve already collected I’ve packed THREE of my boxes. And as soon I can round up a couple more shoe boxes I’m going to divide out the rest of the items. I think I have just about everything I need to pack 6 boxes! Maybe more!
I hope you’ll consider couponing to OCC!
