Operation Christmas Child Budget Tips This Week


It’s just 3 weeks until we start shipping our shoe boxes to Operation Christmas Child. For around 10 years my Husband, Tim, and I have been participating in this and it’s one of my favorite things about Christmas.

If you’re not familiar with the organization check THIS out. Enter to win a distribution trip here.

Last year I made a short video on how to pack a shoebox on a budget HERE that you can get some ideas from. Here at Mummy Deals I’m going to be highlighting great deals that I find each week that are perfect for the shoe boxes so you too can do it on a budget and give more. Here are this week’s 13 deals and steals:

  • FREE trade magazines HERE that would fit neatly on the bottom of a box of a teenager.
  • Use these FREE invites HERE as notes to the kids instead.
  • FREE toothbrushes from CVS here
  • FREE Ricola drops and cheap gum from Walgreens here
  • Run out for leftover candy from the stores. Remember it has to be hard candy and it needs to be bagged.
  • Get makeup for $1 here.
  • Sale items from Disney Store HERE
  • My Blankee bears for under $3 shipped here
  • Use the $10 off a $30 purchase coupon HERE from Bath & Body Works to snag some cheaper soaps.
  • Save on Band-Aids here.
  • While out shopping use some of the new P&G coupons to save on toiletries.
  • If you’re shopping online make sure you use cash back sites here to save more.
  • Listen to Singing Christmas Tree from Veggie Tales FREE on MP3 download HERE.
  • Line the bottom of a box with a reusable shopping bag for an extra gift that you may have got for free.

Please check out my other links here including my series called, “Ways to Pack a Shoebox on a Budget.”

This week’s tip: Pick up leftover candy now and don’t leave it until the last minute. If you haven’t yet started a box, grab one now! Family Christian Stores have the nice logo ones.
