Tis the season! Well almost anyway. It’s a little late for this tip, but maybe it will help someone for next year…

Every year we make up boxes for Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan’s Purse. Usually I will decide how much we can spend and from that fill as many boxes as we can. This year, I started CVSing and have been able to fill 2 boxes already for next to nothing! I still will spend some money on things like under garments and small toys, but the toiletries are all taken care of! Hopefully, with the money we are saving on those things, we will be able to send one more box this year.

If you are not familiar with Operation Christmas Child, I encourage you to visit Samaritan’s Purse to learn more.
