I can't believe it's mid-November. I was so good all year, updating my Shoebox - and then summer, vacation, Thanksgiving, etc.
But that's OK. So, I'm ready to finish my box.
We actually have a slightly new directive this year - to focus on little luxuries rather than essentials (like toothpaste - which I totally agree with). So I've swapped in a few things.
- "spa" kit (nail brush, emery board, foot file, cuticle sticks & toe separators)
- scented candle in travel tin
- face wash
- makeup pouch
- reusable tote bag
I paid $20 for these (the last 2 were free to me - but still new!), so I have $30 left to spend. So, I added:
- Starbucks $10 Gift Card
- Eye makeup
- Nail polish
- Lip gloss
- A perfume sample I got at Sephora
The nail polish and eye makeup were on sale, so I spent about $38. So all in all, just a smidgen over $50. Not bad.
I really love doing this project.
The 2013 official #ShoeboxLove campaign has started. We're a drop off point again in East Vancouver. I've done a separate post about it, so people can get just the salient details.
Thanks so much to all of you who did a box last year and who have already told me you're doing one this year!
Now .. to wrap my shoebox!
