Friday Favorites - Shoes

After seeing this picture. 
I am even more convinced about adding shoes to boxes.

In my church I put out a footwear challenge. Challenging everyone in our congregation to purchase a pair of footwear. So if you have 5 people in your family, you would purchase 5 pairs of footwear. If everyone in our congregation steps up and does the challenge, everyone of our shoe boxes we pack this year, will contain a pair of footwear!  

A pair of shoes, sandals, flip flops,can often be the difference between being able to attend school or not. Shoes are a luxury in a lot of countries.
My sister was telling me that often people share a pair of shoes. They each get one shoe and then they hop around on that foot.  That sounds very tiring to me.  Imagine sharing your only pair of shoes!

Now is the time to buy sandals and flip flops.  
They are inexpensive and can help improve the quality of life for a child.

Friday Favorites - Chalk board

Add a small chalkboard.
Unlike paper it can be used over and over again.

Garage Sale Time!

Garage Sales have started up again. 
It is so fun to go out and see what you'll find!
There were 3 right beside each other today.

I picked up 8 bars of soap and Ardene's pony tail holdes all for .50 cents.
Picked up a few games, bag of balloons and a great red clown nose!
Thought this cute Hawaiian shirt would look cute on a boy.
And praying the aqua shoes will go to a boy who lives near water.
For .50 cents I couldn't leave them there.
Don't forget to check the "Free" box that garage sales often have.
Today I came home with all these balls for free!
I was excited that I found more for boys again today!

Do you enjoy going to garage sales?
What's the best buy you're gotten at a garage sale?
