I spent a good 5 hours today making Christmas goody boxes for neighbors and the mailman. I haven’t done this in years but I somehow managed to have a nice little system going. Even chores and lunch were accomplished while waiting for the sugar cookie dough to chill in the frig.
The whole routine was vlogged and I will attach the video down below. The recipes and how to is all there but if you want the recipes you can find them in my The Homemade Housewife.
Off season you can find old-fashioned tins at thrift stores for .25 cents and .50 cents. I buy all my baking goods at Winco and I get the most generic brands. With what I made today I could have filled 20 tins and I believe the whole event cost less than $30. I will start keeping and totaling up recipes so I can give accurate pricing. I figure that each tin filled with homemade deliciousness would cost less than $2 dollars. This is a great way to gift friends, family, neighbors, your pediatrician, mailman/lady, and so on for very little money. For those of you wanting to give this year and not having much to fund the desire…this is an answer to your prayers.
Tomorrow we will take out the wagon and make our rounds to pass out the tins before we eat them ourselves.
