During this time of year, nearly everyone is doing their holiday shopping. This includes members of the Duggar family of TLC’s Counting On.
Longtime Duggar fans will recall that the family loves to save money. Whenever possible, they shop at discount and secondhand stores. They stock up on food to save money whenever possible. Their famous motto is “Buy used, save the difference.” Of course, once the kids grow up and move out, they can make their own choices like they do with anything else.
Recently, Jessa Duggar Seewald posted a picture of her Christmas deliveries on Instagram. The picture features four big Amazon boxes on her front porch. Her husband, Ben Seewald, is standing in the doorway with a shocked look on his face. Along with the hilarious picture, Jessa wrote, “@ben_seewald ‘Just been doing a little Christmas shopping, Babe.’😁🙈“.
Counting On fans question Jessa about buying new items
In the comments section of her post, a fan said, “I’m surprised. I thought you prefer to buy used.” Though Jessa gets a lot of comments and can’t possibly respond to all of them, she commented back. She wrote, “We do both. @rhealanasofnwa has lots of great kids toys and things that are gently used, so we always check out their stuff first for the kiddos!”
Another Counting On fan asked what Jessa had purchased. Certainly lots of fans were wondering about this because there are so many boxes pictured. Jessa happened to reply to this comment too, saying, “This was some stuff to pack in shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.”
On Jessa’s birthday on November 4, Anna Duggar shared a post. In the post, the Duggar family is packing boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Her caption reads, “Our kiddos enjoyed getting to help pack shoeboxes for @operationchristmaschild tonight for family night! You can go to the link in my bio to learn more and pack your own box to share with a child in need! Thank you to @jessaseewald & @ben_seewald for spending most of Jessa’s birthday today investing time and resources to set up this fun family project! Happy Birthday Jessa, we love you so much! 🎂💕🎉 ”
It’s possible that the picture was taken earlier this month before the family first packed the boxes. Or, the family might be packing boxes again. Either way, fans seem to love the Duggar family’s kindness.
