I’ve posted a bit about this on Yankee Homestead’s new Facebook page [have you “liked” it yet?] but wanted to be sure to get the word out to all Yankee Homestead readers…
Pack those Boxes!
Just a quick reminder that back-to-school sales make a perfect opportunity to stock up on items for Christmas Shoeboxes.
Remember that shoe boxes must be packed and dropped off in mid-November, in order to reach children in far off places by Christmastime.
Back to School Sales
I love to follow Money Saving Mom’s back-to-school deals. Every week, she provides a list of the best deals at many big retailers like Target, Walmart, Staples and more.
The boys and I have already hit a few back-to-school sales over the past few weeks–can you believe it’s that time again? We’re well on our way to having all the items crossed off our list. Hooray!
