So my total for 4 amazing baskets filled with goodies my kids will enjoy and use all year long:

TOTAL VALUE: $245.10    ACTUAL PRICE PAID: $ 62.86 

That's a little over $15 per basket, which in my mind is an AWESOME deal considering most of those "pre made" baskets are $20 and not half as nice, creating these didn't take tons of time or extra money just good use of  coupons, shopping sales and clearance,and of course creative hiding/storage spots! ;-)
