She explained that she fills each case with lollies, chips, chocolate, toys and cute stationery.

She then creates a personalised label for each case which includes each child’s name, followed by ‘secret stash’ etched in vinyl to pop on the case.

The woman posted her smart idea to Facebook group ‘Kmart Hacks and Decor’.
