10 Deals For Operation Christmas Child Week of 2/20/12

I LOVE Operation Christmas Child and in 2009 managed to pack 45 good quality boxes for just $45 because I didn’t just start in November right before packing week. The key to it was shopping year round which is why I am an Operation Christmas Child Year-Round Girl and you can be too.  Here are 10 Ways to stuff your shoebox with FREE items this week.  Join me?

1) Target has their Valentine’s items at 70% off at my local store.  I found some great  tattoo boxes to include in my shoeboxes.

2) If you received the Target Mobile Coupon for the Sonia Kashuk makeup brush, you maybe able to find it cheap or free.
Sonia Kashuk Makeup Brush $1.99 – $2.99
use $2.00/1 Target Mobile Coupon
Final Price: Free or $.99

3) FREE Alaska vacation magazine. Any kind of travel magazine would be a cool glimpse into American culture for kids overseas.

4) This Saturday February 25th Target is having a FREE Dr Seuss day. The celebration will include free goody bags, fun activities and more which are perfect for shoeboxes.

5) Twice a month Lowe’s has a FREE Build and Grow Clinic for kids where they can build something to take home. This weekend it’s a Rumblin’ Race Car on Saturday Feb 25, 2012 from 10:00 AM and would make a great gift for a shoebox plus your kids can help make it too. I would encourage you to call your local Lowe’s and find out where crafts go after and if you can get leftovers for Operation Christmas Child.

6) Vistaprint has several FREE items that you just pay shipping on. The business cards or mommy cards make great personalized notes for your shoeboxes and are cheaper than regular cards.

7) Sign up to receive email alerts from Kohl’s and you’ll be emailed a coupon worth $5 in Kohl’s money off a purchase of $5. This means buy something for $5.01 and get it for $.01.

8) Make a FREE Kid’s Craft at Lakeshore Learning 2/25/12. It’s a silly character from Dr. Seuss.

9) Walgreens has some great deals this week too.
