Frugal No Candy Easter Basket Ideas
Are you ready for Easter? Do you give Easter baskets? I’ve actually only put together Easter baskets a couple of years even though my eldest just turned ten years old last month (I don’t have a conviction against Easter baskets, it just hasn’t been our focus). Okay. Let’s go back to the fact that I’ve been a mom a decade, CRAZY! Time flies they (whoever they is) tell you, you know what I mean, moms (and dads). That aside, this year I was able to fill three baskets for $13.97, and that includes the baskets themselves. And I did it in less than a half hour at the Dollar Tree.
So since Easter is approaching fast, I am here to tell you, “don’t stress”, “don’t worry”. You can put together a frugal Easter basket in one swift trip to Dollar Tree, or a dollar store. And you can give thoughtful gifts. AND you don’t have to spend a whole lot of money to do so. AND you don’t even have to include any candy.
The Sarrs LOVE their sweet treats; don’t get me wrong. My day almost feels incomplete without some kind of chocolate (in fact here is my list of 30 Chocolate Love Recipes). But we know that those dessert-loving kids of ours are going to be surrounded, or engulfed in sweet treats from every-which-way, so I thought I’d give them some they could use and consume.
I am guest posting today over at Stacy Makes Cents, so go there to check out what I bought for my kids and to see the 30 other frugal no-candy Easter basket ideas. They make for some great last-minute Easter basket ideas.
So what are you giving your kids’ this Resurrection Day?
