How to Give to Great Causes on a Budget Part 8

As we gear up for our Operation Christmas Child drive on November 3 I looked at all the stuff I’d bought and got GIIIIIIIIIIDDYY! This year I spent less and have more boxes to pack. I spent $45 and have stuff for 45 boxes! So right now I’m doing a 10 Ways to Give on a Budget Series and this is Part 8: School supply sales.
