Fall Activity & Snack for Under $1

Cookies!!!!!!! The kids and I are trying to get in the fall spirit. Sometimes it takes work here in North Texas when it's still in the 80's in October. So we made "fall" cookies. I've lost the picture of ours.....they were so cute! We made sugar cookies, frosted them white (it was what I had on hand, haha) and the kids covered them with orange and black sprinkles.

We used Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix and frosting from my stock pile. The cookie mix I got for free (with a good sale and coupon at Kroger) and the frosting, I'll admit, is from the spring. I got it back when it was like $.19 at Walmart. I already had Halloween sprinkles in the cabinet. We used 1 stick of butter ($.55) and one egg ($.08), so my total cost was $.82. But, we didn't even need to step out the door!!

A great example of why is fun to stockpile!!! :)
