I was trying to find a 5th item for my monthly Amazon Subscribe & Save order.  I was super stoked to find this awesome deal on microfiber cloths!  We use microfiber cloths in our home and I adore them.  They hold water well, but also ring out well so they dry super fast.  Helps them not get stinky!

I’m thrilled to find a deal on them so I can include them in my Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes!  The more you order the better your deal, but they are a good price at any quantity!

Use subscribe and save (a free service that you can cancel anytime) to get a 12 pack for $11.04 or a 144 pack for $42.49.  These prices reflect the 15% discount if you order 5 or more subscribe & save items a month (I always do), you’ll pay just slightly more if you order less than 5 subscribe and save items!  An awesome deal either way!


Include a Photo with your Gift

Grab 99 prints from Shutterfly for just $5.99 shipped!  That’s a great price!  Just use code CARROT at checkout!

Did you know photos are among the things that Operation Christmas Child shoebox recipients cherish most?  They love to see who packed their shoebox!



When I asked if anyone was interested in participating in another craft swap, the response was very positive!  I’m so glad there are so many crafters out there in the Clip with Purpose community!  Handmade items are such a wonderful thing to include in an Operation Christmas Child shoebox!

If you are thinking about participating in the craft swap, here’ s a few guidelines to review before signing up:

  • I will be grouping people into craft groups of 3-6 people.  I will do my best to match crafts that have similar levels of difficulty, so that you get “fair” swaps.  Keep that in mind as you choose your craft.
  • You will be mailing 5 of your craft to each person in your group!  That means you will need the resources to make that many items within the designated time frame and also have the resources to pay for shipping.  I would recommend making something lightweight to save on shipping costs.
  • Please play fair and don’t sign up for the swap if you are not going to do your part.
  • Have fun and communicate with your group during the swap.  You’ll be getting contact info for each person in your group, so get to know your fellow crafters!  It makes the whole experience even more fun!

Ready to sign up?  Just fill out the form here.  I’ll keep the sign up open for a week (until April 12th).  Then, I will recommend having your items shipping within a month (by May 15th).  Of course, your group can choose to extend the time if need be, this is just a guideline to keep your on track.


What busy, busy shoppers you all have been this past week. I feel like I’m falling behind as I haven’t been to the store in ages! But, I do plan on carving out time next week for some serious Easter Clerance shopping!
