Here is a general, generic checklist that you may find helpful. Go HERE to view and print it. If you’re not already using a checklist, hopefully this one will help you keep track of what you’re buying for your Operation Christmas Child shoebox(es) so you can monitor your progress throughout the year. When you’re buying items year round, it is easy to forget what you have 🙂 You don’t want to be scrambling to buy things right before collection week and paying top dollar when you do!
There are few blank slots at the end of the checklist to add other items that you may want to include in your boxes. Definitely don’t feel like you need to include everything on the list in every shoebox. Cross out whatever you don’t plan on buying.
Here’s how I use the checklist: I fill in the number of items I desire to buy in the left hand column. Then, as I buy the items, I tally them up in the right hand column. Once I’ve got as many as I wanted, I check it off the list 🙂
Of course, as several of you know, you can plan as much as you want, but God will ultimately decide how many shoeboxes you end up packing. God often provides more than you ever thought possible and multiplies your best laid plans beyond whatever you imagined!
With all of your “extras” you can donate them to your local charities, such as the Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, Angel Tree, homeless shelters, veterans groups, battered women’s shelters, etc. They will be so grateful for any and all help!
