We were trying something new. It is a challenge for us to pack 1,600 plastic tubs in our trailer, so we decided to try gallon-2 gallon zip-lock bags. The WINNER is the Zip-Lock Bags by a long shot. We averaged about 2,300 gifts this year with this system. Of course, Bryan’s new bin method helped with keeping them organized for us. This method not only will help us out tremendously, but will save each of you money.
If you still wish to make the old style in the plastic tubs, by all means we will still accept them. We want to thank each of you that took part in our collection of Christmas Shoe boxes. We appreciate all the help we received and the children loved them.
