"Orange" You Glad That... I Love You!

Yay! My first care package is complete! It's not as lavish as I hoped my first one would be but I'm pretty satisfied, as I hope he will be too. 
  • Goldfish Crackers (Original and Colors)
  • Nature Valley Sweet and Salty Nut Bars
  • Cheez-Its snack pack
  • Orange tic-tacs
  • Reese's pieces (I thought these would be less likely to melt)
  • B-B-Q Sunflower seeds (his favorite snack to supplement tobacco)
  • Orange Crush singles to go! (safer than sending glass bottles)
  • *Not pictured- Grizzly wintergreen... gross, but I love him and I know he would go nuts without it.

Care Package Supplies

They're here!
Finally, my boxes came in today! I'm up and ready to get started on some awesome care packages. I have spent months researching and repining theme ideas via Pinterest and a few of my personal favorite military spouse blogs. With a few original boxes and some "borrowed" ideas I hope to make things as easier for him as possible from home and possibly even prevent some homesickness. Feel free to share more ideas with me and keep visiting so I can share mine with you! 
Below is a link on where I got the information to receive a "Mili-kit" from the USPS 
"The kit is free of charge and contains four Priority Mail APO/FPO flat-rate boxes (two medium and two large), one roll of priority packing tape, priority mail address labels, six customs forms, and envelopes. The kit may be requested by calling 1-800-610-8734."
