I am all for the holidays’s spirit of giving but I am sure we can all agree that between the parties and the gifts, Christmas can get rather costly. It’s so easy to get swept up in the buying craze of the season and if you have a large group of friends, family, and business associates, you know purchasing presents can add up fast.
There’s no greater joy than showing people in our lives how much we care but why break the bank in the process and start the New year with a mountain of credit card debt? Giving gifts can be meaningful even without the high price tag. After all, Christmas is more about spending quality time with loved ones and less the commercialism it has become.
This year, I’ve resolved to stay on a firm budget and check off my Christmas list without overspending. Thank goodness for Hefty® Slider Bags, I can easily spread cheer with my homemade treats! Every time G and I drive to Walmart for our household essentials, I make sure I pick up an extra box or two to have ready when the holidays roll in. I love that Walmart carries Hefty® Slider Bags in quarts to 2 1/2 gallon sizes, I’ll have the perfect slider bag for all the goodies I plan to make for family and friends!

I have a few favorite treats I will be making this Christmas and coconut cashews are definitely on the list! Sweet, crunchy and bursting with coconut flavor, they’re sure to be a welcomed gift. Packed in Hefty® Slider Bags with festive toppers, they’re as fun to give as they are to receive.
