Today I attempted a larger shopping trip for Operation Christmas Donation and was rather nervous but everything went according to plan! The Beat Cares Holiday Toy and Food drive is TOMORROW! I did not realize that it was closing in so quickly until a couple of days ago when someone reminded me.

I’ve been rather busy with finals and such so I put off this shopping trip until today. Even after this shop, I still have some of the budget left to spend and will either grab a few filler items tomorrow morning, or pick up some items over the next couple of weeks to drop off directly to the food bank when I make my donation of personal and household items.

Both cashiers I had today were wonderful! I had no issue with the quantities I was buying or with my coupons.

I spent nearly half the entire budget today but am extremely happy with what I purchased and the variety in my overall donation this year.

Here’s how today’s trip worked out:
