Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. As a child, I loved to wake up on Christmas morning and check my stocking! Dollar General challenged me to see how creative I could get with a $25 Stocking budget.
Dollar General has a huge assortment of holiday items, which includes many budget-friendly items to fill stockings. My kids love getting other personal care items along with candy and other treats in their stocking. When I do things they already need like body wash or socks then I’m not only filling their stocking, it’s one less thing I will have to purchase for them later.
We live in a small town but it’s not too small for the Dollar General. As always, we were a bit rushed on time so I didn’t have time to grab any coupons before we headed out. However, we were able to still get some great deals.
Soap, pencils, hair accessories, body foam, candy, notepads are just a few of the things in the stockings!
I was able to easily fill two stocking for just around $25. I could have stretched that further by clipping a few coupons for the personal care items we purchased on the $1 aisle.
