This Easter basket I made for my son! I set a budget of $20.00 this year. I put all his favorite things in it and still came in under budget. He’s into Pokemon cards and they can be pretty pricey. I scored some great clearance deals some of the same deals I scored for my daughters Cheap and Awesome Easter Basket!
Again I shopped the ends of the isles every where I went. I went after Valentines Day and got this Lego set half off for a $1.99 at Target. Walmart had clearance toothbrushes for a $1.00 and Dollar General had reasonably priced snacks. Sometimes I find my best deals shopping after Holidays.
Every year I always make sure to put snacks, candy, chocolate bunny, and a tooth brush in the basket.
Note book $0.50
Giant crayon $1.98
Lego set $1.99
Colored pencils $2.98
Pokemon cards $4.19
Chocolate money $1.00
Tooth Brush $1.00
2 cheese stick snacks $0.50
Carmel creams $1.00
I use the same blue basket every year. No hassle of having to store or buy and new one . I even use the same Easter grass! But if after the years it starts to look dingy I will replace it.
A great Easter Basket for only $20.00!
If you don’t have a basket another great option that’s even cheaper is a plastic pail! This pail I found for $1.00 at Dollar General. I took out some of the bigger items that I had in the basket that would not fit in the pail.
This version came in at $15.00
Don’t stress! Whipping up and Easter basket may look over whelming. Always start with a list, go to your favorite stores, and have fun with it!
Playing the Easter Bunny is the best!!
