When it comes to getting ready for the holidays, it is so easy to quickly overspend on everything from decorations, to gifts, to your favorite holiday meal.  Luckily, you have a great resource available to help you save money while stuffing your stockings this year – just head to Dollar General!

My family always takes the time to remember others during the holidays.  Not only do we donate to the Salvation Army with every bucket we see, add toys to the Toys for Tots drive and even select angels from angel trees – we make sure to adopt a family to help them as much as we can.

Of course, we are still on a budget for our families as well as when it comes for buying for others.  So this year, I headed out to Dollar General to see how far I could take $25 in filling stockings.  I had the best time!

First of all, I picked up stockings for the kids — they were only $3 each!

Once I tossed those into the cart, I had to find some goodies to add — so what else do kids love more than CANDY!!!  And most of the items I found were only $1 each!! (Let’s just say that these kids will definitely not have a sweet tooth come Christmas morning!!)

Once the sweets were added, I went ahead and picked up other items including coloring books, crayons, pencils, a book and even a cute little sippy cup!  Then, I headed to the checkout with my cart in tow!!


  For less than $25 at Dollar General I picked up 3 stockings and ALL of the items need to stuff it full of goodies sure to make the kids smile on Christmas morning!

So my challenge for you is this — what do you do to save money on YOUR holiday stockings?  Have you ever thought of shopping at Dollar General to help you stretch your budget?  Definitely a great resource to use to help you make your holidays bright …..and a little less expensive!!!

    I <3 Dollar General!

    The only thing that would have made your trip better? To have waited & went on a Super Saturday & saved an additional $5 off your $25 purchase! 🙂

    I buy items from the dollar section in Target when they are 50% to 75% off so I only pay 25 to 50 cents per item.

    WE love Dollar General– just came from there actually! I bought all 3 of my kids’ stocking stuffers there too.

    I also planned on going to Dollar Tree. They’ve got lots of great things for the kiddos. My 2 yr old son especially loves the compressed wash cloths with disney caracters on them.

    The stockings in the picture are $1.00. The $3.00 stocking that she bought are a decorative higher quality stocking than the generic $1.00 stocking.

    What would make this even better right now is the fact that almost everything in Christmas decor is 25% off right now! And as Sheri pointed out there is the 5 off 25 coupon that makes it an even better shop!
