We brought the balikbayan box to the Filipino store yesterday. We were told it will leave port later this month and should be in Leyte after 45-60 days. Hopefully it will get there before Christmas. The husband and I are relieved because we do not have to worry about stuffing it full anymore. I bought things as I find them in stores, mostly on clearance. I enjoyed buying kids' clothes most because there were plenty of nice clothes on discount. This year's box is a lot lighter than the previous boxes we sent because it contained mainly clothes and toys. The husband ran out of ideas and I can't think of any but the basic needs so that was what we bought for everybody. Now we will start counting the days and hoping the box will get to its destination in one piece and on time.
