Using What You Already Have to Save Money

My friend's birthday is tomorrow. Instead of buying her a present, I made her one using things I already had.

The flower pail is from a Christmas gift someone gave me last year.
Most of the candy bars were free with coupons.

Right now, Reese's 8 count Peanut Butter Cups are $1.25 at Albertsons.
Double the $.55/1 Reese's Product coupon from 8/23 SS and get them for $.15

I used Starbursts to fill in the gaps and used flowers from my craft stash that I bought using 50% off coupons at Michael's.

At the very most, this gift cost me $2.00. I hope my friend doesn't read this post ;)
And the greatest thing is that I didn't even have to go to the store!
