Budget Friendly Easter Weekend

I don’t know about you, but holiday weekends always have a way of draining my wallet. Talk about a broke bunny. As Easter weekend approaches here are my top tips for avoiding what I call, Bunny Buyer’s Remorse.

1. Skip the Candy and Junk
Instead of filling your kid’s baskets with candy and junk food. Save your money and your sanity, by passing up the infamous “Sugar High” Easter morning. Fresh fruits like oranges, bananas, and apples make a healthy cheaper alternative.

2. Hello, Dollar Tree!
Save your money and snag the Easter essentials at Dollar Tree. You can find a lot of the same or similar items available at Walmart or Target for up to 3x the price! Easter baskets, fillers, toys, and even seasonal home décor for a dollar! You can be a baller at the dollar store and still not break the bank.

3. Do Brunch at Home
Brunch is a popular Easter tradition, but can also be a very expensive meal. At $50 bucks a pop for adults and $30 for kids, you are looking at a $150+ meal for a family of four. Why not stock up on the bubbly and dine in? Not only will you save money, you’ll get to ditch your uncomfortable formal attire. High Five!
