Budget Friendly Easter Basket Tips

The other day I was at the store and noticed the transition from Valentines to Easter candy was happening. Crazy how early everything is placed to start the temptations for adults and kiddos. Well I thought as Easter quickly approaches I would share some of the ways I save on my little ones Easter Baskets. Here is a quick list of budget friendly Easter basket ideas I use in my home.
1. Reusable Basket. Year after year I use the same basket for my little ones. I find a nice woven willow basket from the beginning and never need to do the run around at the store for a new one. I think the woven ones look nicer and you can be creative decorating them to your liking, if you choose. Added Bonus the basket will become a keepsake. Here are some great options: Dark Brown, White, Light Brown
2. Save those plastic eggs. I have been using the same eggs for years. I refuse to by a new bag of them every year. My collection consists of all different sizes and colors thanks to grandparents, friends and even from my little ones school. No need to throw them away. Reuse!!!
3. Filling your own eggs. I know it is alluring to buy those pre-filled eggs. But just say no! It is way more fun and cost efficient to fill them yourself. There is also no need to fill them all with candy and money. Be creative! Little notes and jokes go a long way.
4. Add something they need. I always try to incorporate something my child needs in their basket. This way I am purchasing an item I already was going to. Whether it’s new markers or a new baseball glove.
5. No need to over fill or buy the biggest basket. The smaller the basket the less space you have to fill. Bonus: A smaller basket is easier to hide!
