Two Oral B coupons are available to print!  They make for great deals at Kroger stores and Target (and probably elsewhere, I’d print them and keep an eye out).  Here’s the direct links:

I know I have been absent.  I’ve missed you all!  I hope you haven’t missed me too much, though.  The Facebook page has still been really active with deals posted by others, so I hope you’re following CWP there.

June was just a whirlwind of events!  We were on a plane every single week in June.  When we were home, I was playing a lot of catch-up at work and around the house.

Last month, we also said goodbye to our sweet foster baby after loving on him for 4.5 months.  It was rough.  My emotions were all over the place with that one.  And, I just needed some time to process everything.

So,  I hope you can forgive me for taking time to re-group and de-stress.  Now that life is back to normal, I’ll be more present here and on Facebook.  However it is summer, and I have a lot of activities planned with the kids.  So posting will be lighter than usual.

I’m excited for school supply sales coming up and can’t wait to get started blogging on those (and shopping for them).

Thanks for being patient and keeping the deals going on Facebook even in my absence.   You guys are awesome.

Happy early Independence Day!

Through 6/11 (midnight), Oriental Trading is offering FREE shipping with any order.  Just use code CE154860  at checkout.  I like to browse the sale section when they offer free shipping.  My son got one of the Crystal Cross Necklaces pictured above at VBS last year.  He still loves it an it has held up really well.  They’re a great deal, I think!  Head here to check it out.

Thanks, Rachel & Linda!


fishing tackle box kit

Walmart has this 101 piece fishing kit marked down to just $8!  You can choose free pick up at store.  They might be available in store as well, but I am not sure.

Fishing kits are wonderful to include in shoeboxes.  You could easily divide the contents of this kit into several shoeboxes or just send one super fishing kit to one kid.  The tackle box itself can be as the shoebox, too.

Head here to check it out.


dolls with blankets

Linda emailed me some pictures of how she wraps her cute little baby dolls in homemade crocheted blankets.  I really think it makes these little dolls so special and gives the child another way to play with them.  She buys dolls at Dollar Tree as well as at garage sales.

She asks friends to save their leftover yarn for her.  Then,  she knows other ladies that crochet or knit 12″ – 14″ squares with the yarn to make baby doll blankets.  What a great way to get others involved in your shoebox project!


R G Riley Wholesale T-Shirts

RG Riley has some great deals on boys’ first quality T shirts again. They have both red and maroon shirts marked down to $0.75 each.  If you select the cheapest shipping option you should still be able to get them for less than $1 each.  Several of you ordered from them last time around and had lots of good things to say.

(Thanks, Linda).


Include a Photo with your Gift

Shutterfly is offering 101 free prints (just pay shipping) with code MEMORIALDAY.  The cheapest option is to order 99 prints and pay $5.99 shipping.  That works out to just $0.06 per print!  A fantastic price!  Head here for the deal.

It’s been said over and over by people present at distributions that children really cherish the photos they receive inside their shoeboxes.  The kids love to know who packed their box!
