Is it wrong to use BOC items for stocking stuffers?
I have been hoarding the assorted carp I've received in BOCs and from grab bag deals offered by other sites. Between these items, the "pay 99 cents more and get a random goodie" deals, and the things I've ordered that just weren't what I wanted, I have several boxes of hoarded carp. I am doing some pre-Christmas cleaning out (we have no room for a tree if I don't!) and started putting things aside for the next Wootizen BOC exchange, and I've suddenly realized that nieces and nephews might appreciate an extra pair of earbuds, DD's boyfriend might be glad to get a knife sharpener, and nearly everyone could find a use for a ShamWow.
I should explain that DH's family traditionally fills Christmas stockings with useful items rather than the fruit and candy my (overweight) family always included. My family soon adopted that tradition. Including these things in stockings won't seem TOO wierd, and I can put together small stockings for everyone!
Is this frugal, or just cheap? Ho! Ho! Ho!
