"Are You Ready For Some Football?!" Care Package

Now that Hubs' care package is in the mail, I'll share all the details. I know it's a tiny bit late to send a football care package since the season already started but when I was thinking for a second theme for September, this was the best thing that I could come up with. I send at least two themed/decorated packages a month. The first September one was a miss you since he was on R&R just before that.

Hubs' "Are you ready for some football" care package included a bunch of stuff that I felt was appropriate for game day. The most important thing in the box was the picture of Tim Tebow. Hubs is a Jets fan and I'm a Tebow fan so it worked our perfectly for us.

Once this box arrives to the glorious Afghanistan Hubster will open it and find..:
  • 4 Old El Paso Tortilla Stuffers (he LOVES these by the way.. hint hint)
  • 6 Pure Protein bars
  • 4 mini Dr. Perppers
  • 4 mini Gatorades
  • 2 Hormel Compleats meals (steak & potato)
  • 5 bags microwavable popcorn
  • 3 individual-sized bags of Fritos
  • 2 individual-sized bags of Sun Chips
  • 1 can Frito Bean Dip
  • 1 can Cheezwiz
  • 1 bag beef nugget jerk
  • 1 bag Chex Mix Muddy Buddies

It took a lot of precision and attempts to get everything packed so that it'd fit but I got it! The drinks were all packed in Ziplocks. Remember to use the items that you're packing as cushions for the other stuff. In this box the chips all went in the middle and the bags that were filled with air or softer things, went around them.
