My goal has been to collect at least 250 pairs and today God blessed me with 17 more. I saw the hint from the "Clip With Purpose" facebook page that Big Lots had 90% off the clearance price on hats and gloves.
It was raining and I'd just gotten settled into my recliner chair after school. I almost talked myself out of going out to check the store because I figured everything would be gone.
I'm so glad I went, though. There were no gloves or hats--only 3 scarves on the shelf. But then I spotted these nice fleece lined shoes with hard bottoms. Regular price was $12.00 for each pair, but I got them for 60 cents each. So now 17 more children will get a chance to have their feet covered.
It doesn't end there. I alerted Heather Rogers who lives near the east side Big Lots and she scored 60-70 more items there--mostly gloves and some hats. I love good, cheap items, don't you?
So far God has blessed us with a total of 113 nice pairs of shoes for a total cost of $185.90.
Nothing short of shoe-pendous!
