No need to run to the stores and spend more money than you should. We have come up with some great money-saving ideas for your Easter basket which you can follow this Easter to save a lot of your money.
It is not necessary that you have fake plastic Easter grass to put in your Easter basket. In fact, make your own Easter grass by yourself. Take some papers which you can easily find in your house and then shred them. Also, add some different colored construction papers to make it look colorful. You can make your own Easter grass easily in few seconds by spending less amount of money. Once you are done making it, you can put candy and other items in it.
There is no hard and fast rule to buy a new basket every year. You can use the basket this Easter which you used last year as well. I still use the basket that my mother gave me once when I was a kid.
Easter is more about candy than anything else. The best time to buy candy is at the time of Valentine’s Day when it is on sale and it remains great by the time of Easter. Make sure not to buy red hearts and other Valentine’s Day stuff since you are buying it to celebrate Easter. Using coupons this Easter is also a great way to save money! You don’t have to buy different kind of candy for one basket. Instead, buy the candy which is the most favourite of that person.
Thrift and Discount Stores
Being so excited about Easter does not mean that you spend your money without taking care of your budget. Head to the thrift stores because they offer a great deal! A lot of Easter stuff can be purchased from discount stores. No need to pay more than you should just because it is Easter, instead, make smart choices for this Easter shopping!
Fill the Easter basket with the things that your kid needs for upcoming Spring/Summer. It is just like buying sunglasses, socks, school supplies, and a new toothbrush. In this way, you are able to buy much needed stuff on sale and it is way too thoughtful as well which makes the basket even more special.
Go for non-traditional gifts this Easter! For example, buying books is way better than buying a candy bar which will be finished soon. Buying Easter gifts are always fun. You can also buy some useful stuff like a kid’s watch, markers, clothes, stuffed animals, and colouring books. All these stuff can easily be found in discount stores.
Buy some cheap items this Easter which cost like $1 or less. Fill up the basket with the items like crafting supplies, coloured chalk, sunglasses, water bottles, bathing suit, and much more which save you a lot of money.
Keep your Easter basket simple and beautiful! Don’t decorate it with lots of wrapping papers and do not use so many ribbons. It only costs you more and it is not even worth doing. In fact, the person faces trouble opening the basket as it is decorated with so much stuff.
How about purchasing next Easter stuff this year? You get a major discount if you shop right on the Monday after this Easter. Clothes, candy, baskets, home décor and even the fake plastic basket which we talked about earlier can be bought in less amount. Most of the stores offer at least 75% off the day after Easter.
