Since I saw this before Christmas last year , I was able to snag some nice stockings at 75% off after Christmas. I also got these tart warmer cubes and Christmas towels at the same sale. That filled up half the stocking for less than $5. Throughout the year, I was able to snag some freebies that I threw in there or picked up stuff that the person would want at the after holiday sales. Some things were gifts to me that I didn’t really want so I regifted to the stocking. While couponing , I kept in mind the stockings. They were full in no time.
I managed to keep the stockings under $10. This feat was only accomplished with pre planning. This is a great idea that can easily get out of hand cost wise . I suggest you make a budget for the stocking and stick with it. Then sit back and enjoy the smiles. I know I will especially since there is lots of chocolate involved. Who can resist smiling when there is chocolate? Maybe they’ll even share a piece with me!
This is just one way that I am celebrating the birth of Jesus for the 25 days before Christmas. How did you celebrate today?
