Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 4/2/2016

I ran out to a number of stores early Easter Monday, but they either didn't have anything marked down, or nothing caught my eye.  But...while I was at a number of discount/dollar stores I did gind some nice toys to stock up on-none cost more than $1 a piece-although one thing I had to buy 5 other items to qualify for it at that price:

 Latter in the week I had more success, splurged on some bunnies for Wow items for the younger kids boxes:

And with CVS deals and a surprise coupon for free candy I got even more good deals! (for more info on getting deals at CVS check out my other blog: Simply CVS)

Plus some eggs we had (probably use it to make toy kits like mentioned in this post), some "stickers" we cut off the edge of return address labels-they had cute animals.  Plus a couple candies my grandmother got, but didn't want (EDIT:  A reader let me know that the Sixlets are actually hard candy coating chocolate, so they won't be going):

My mom & sister crocheted an Aunt Ida Hat and knitted a scarf and attached a "Hand Made with Love tag" they designed.

Spent from shoebox packing budget: $17.02

Spent from gift cards earned or won online: $1.43
