Care Package #3 - clothing for Jacob
I've had people ask me what I spend my time doing while we wait on bringing Jacob home. I love creating care packages for him, living life as a family of 4, and finding ways to cut costs and living leaner. I know I just created care package # 2 back in January, but I couldn't pass up an opportunity to bless our little guy with some new clothes while he waits on us. So, with a 30% off coupon in hand and already highly discounted items (70-80% off) - I did some shopping for Jacob. I got some awesome deals (nothing like $3 shirts and pants plus an additional 30% off - YIPPY). As you can see, we got Jacob some really nice shirts and pants and even a pair of pjs with monkeys (can't wait for him to get them - maybe he won't have to wear anymore girly items while he waits on us). The question my husband kept asking was can all this fit in a gallon ziplock bag - I told him absolutely with the right squeezing out of air and patience. I was right - it all fit but 1 shirt (which we'll save for him when he gets here). Anyway, this was such a simple thing we could do and a great family activity (everyone picked items out - which was very sweet)!
That is all the clothing cleaned and ready to go into the ziplock bag and head to Korea!
