Keeping Your Kids Stockings Budget Friendly
Using things like snack bars, fruit, and other food items can be a sensible way to fill a stocking without wrecking your budget. You could just fill in with 1-2 additional items that you feel your toddler would love and get a lot of good use out of. Hitting up your Dollar Tree for hot wheel cars, notepads, and other $1 finds is another great way to fill the stocking out with a few more inexpensive items.
