PostHeaderIcon Easter Baskets On A Budget

Image3Every year I would go to a big box store and overpay for the kids Easter baskets. If you are wondering why I didn’t just reuse the ones from the previous year, just start laughing now. The main reason is the kids would want to use them in their rooms for their “stuff”. They weren’t high quality so they always ended up broken. Let’s just go with it’s the kids’ fault.

Once you get their baskets, you go overboard on filling it with things that they will be excited about for all of 5 minutes. Royal and Spencer were way more excited about colored pencils and chalk, years ago. Alex truly just loves everything so his baskets are super easy. Hunter and Royal, not so much anymore. Teenagers seem to get more expensive as they get older.

This year, get baskets that will last a very long time! When they have outgrown Easter, they have a fantastic bin they can use for whatever they want…. or you can steal it to organize your home. BONUS FOR MOM!

Right now you can get 2 amazing baskets for just $15 with every $35 spent. That’s 2 for $15, not $15 each. Where can you get a gorgeous basket for $7.50? Need 2? Need 4? I got you!  read the rest of this entry »
