Do you have regular stores that you visit to buy your OCC items?
Here are a few of mine.
They always have great items for $1.50-$2.00 and if you hit the right time, you can find great clearance items up to 80% off.
I was there on Saturday and they had tons of items that would make great theme boxes, Hello Kity, Mickey Mouse, pencils, erasers, notebooks, crayons, etc.
You can also sign up for their email coupons. They often have 50% off one item.
Great for pretty much all items you can think of putting into a box.
Hygiene, School Supplies, Toys, Stuffed Animals, etc.
Again great items if you're going to do theme boxes or just want to add something extra special
They often have packs of items, making them less expensive.
Box Stores- Superstore, Walmart
Great end of season clearance on clothing and toys.
School supplies in August. (often they are cheaper than the dollar store at this time of year)
And Candy after halloween.
The odd time you can find clear out clothing for .97 cents. ( my mom is great at finding these. You just need to take time to search)
And the .25 cent balls from the ball vending machine. One of my favorite buys!
Do you have favorite stores that you like to check in on to pick up supplies?
