Stocking Stuffers~ W/ M&M’s and Forza Motorsport 5

I am the (unofficial) Queen of stocking stuffers, and this year Walmart, M&M’s and Forza Motorsport 5 are going to help me keep that title, as a part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®, this shop has been compensated.

Walmart is my best choice for stocking stuffers anyway, but when I heard that I could get the new Forza Motorsport 5 game for XBox One, get the M&M’s I need AND get a $10 egift card for Walmart through their Buy, Snap and Redeem program, I was totally in! And keep reading to the end when I tell you about the M&M Pixel Art Instagram contest

Buy, Snap, and Redeem:
-Buy Forza Motorsport 5 game

-Buy participating M&M’s products (+ Participating products include: M&Ms Peanut 42oz Stand Up Pouch, M&Ms Milk 42oz Stand Up Pouch, M&Ms Peanut Butter 38oz Stand Up Pouch, M&Ms Pretzel 30oz Stand Up Pouch, M&Ms Peanut 19.2oz Large Laydown Bag, M&Ms Milk 19.2oz Large Laydown Bag, M&Ms Peanut Butter 18.4oz Large Laydown Bag, M&Ms Pretzel 15.4oz Large Laydown Bag.) Total M&M purchase must be at least $8 for offer to work.

-Snap a photo of qualifying items on the receipt on your phone and text it to 811811. Include the code M&M with the picture of your receipt. Game and M&M’s must be purchased on the same receipt.

-Redeem: You will receive a text back with a reward code valid for a $10 eGift card to Walmart.

It was as easy as that!!

Stockings
For me the next step was stockings! I included photos of one I created for a special little guy who will not be here for Christmas, but I will be sending this instead. I have eight stockings on the mantle for my family, that’s us, the neighbor kid who practically lives here and the dog. And then I have 8 for my sisters and their families and one for my Mom. For a total of SEVENTEEN stockings!! In order to fill them all I need to find good deals. Nothing over a $1 in my stockings, Hot Wheels are a must (at Walmart they are 97 cents!), a little candy, in this case M&M’s and usually something silly and fun. Filling stockings has become somewhat of a passion for me, I love doing it. The Forza Motorsport 5 game however will be under the tree, with the Xbox One console. SHHHHHHHH Don’t tell my kids!! They are going to flip their lids! I hope they love it, because aside from that & what is in the stocking, they are not getting much else. I know they will, they are self proclaimed “gamers”!

While I was filling the stocking for that special little guy, my kids became slightly addicted to making M&M pixel art. My Momma twin made one, Wild Child went for three but Daddy Twin, well he went all out, making eight!! They all had a lot of fun. (See our pics below the contest details) You can enter up to three times per day.

    I love your M&M pictures! What a fun idea! I think I would end up eating more than I put on a picture, but it would be fun to do with kids! Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks! The boys had so much fun doing them, they asked if they could do more today, and eating them is for sure the bonus!!

    17 stockings seriously? That’s crazy. I can’t even come up with ideas to fill up my three stockings.

      Luckily they slowly increased over the years and by the time we had that many I was an old pro! Haha, It is a lot though. Thanks for stopping by!
