What is Operation Christmas Child?
If you’ve never heard of Operation Christmas Child or want to find out more about it, I ask that you visit the Samaritan’s Purse/Operation Christmas Child webpage to get started. It should answer most of your questions. The Clip with Purpose blog is dedicated to helping people pack shoeboxes for this wonderful organization. However, we ourselves, are not part of the organization. Just enthusiastic participants! 🙂
Once you’re ready to start packing boxes on a budget, come back here and check out the video series “Shoebox Shopping 101” to get started!
Tips and Ideas
One of my favorite things to do on this blog is share tips for filling your shoebox on a budget. You can find these easily under the menu heading “Operation Christmas Child” and then clicking on “tips” or just go here for the tips! I also love to share easy, home-made crafts that you can include in your shoeboxes. This can be found under the menu heading “Operation Christmas Child” and then clicking on “Home-made Items” or just go here for the crafts!
If you have any ideas you’d like to share with the rest of my readers, use my contact form to get in touch with me.
Each week, we share the best deals we can find for Operation Christmas Child items at stores nationwide as well as online. Feel free to chime in by leaving comments on the blog if you find any deals we missed. I hope we can all share deals with each other and help each other fill shoeboxes for very little out of pocket costs!
Other information I offer on the blog includes information on coupon terminology, organizing coupons, finding coupons, and more. If you ever are looking for some information and you can’t find it, just contact me and I’ll try to help you out as best as I can.
We’ve shared many boxes that we have packed or readers have packed for under $10 (including the cost of shipping!). Be sure to check those posts out for inspiration.
