Think Outside the Basket! Smart Ideas for Post- Easter Bargains
Did the Easter bunny seem to hop away with your cash this holiday? From those clothes, to pictures, peeps and the heaps of food you served it’s easy to see how your holiday nest egg could get eaten up. If you spent a little more than you had hoped, now’s the time to be savvy. You may be able to make up the difference by picking up some great after Easter deals now that you can use throughout the warm months ahead.
Thinking outside the Easter basket can not only make your summer shopping a snap but it can be easier on the wallet. Being a smart shopper takes some planning. Now’s the time to think about and plan for the inevitable. You can’t escape the summer without giving up some gifts.
Are you attending or throwing a kids birthday party? Baby or wedding shower? Easter baskets are no longer regulated to just candy. Many are filled with toys or themes like hair accessories and makeup. At 50% off or more you can give better gifts than you planned at half the price. You can also use discounted candy and toys as party favors.
Kid’s clothes never go out of style. What does is overpaying for them. Take advantage of sales on Easter clothes now and use them for special events throughout the summer or buy larger sizes and put them away for next year.
The upcoming end of the school year finds us wanting to thank teachers with a small gift. After all they have kept our precious bundle out of our hair and taught them a thing or two. A beautiful basket that can be updated with ribbons that showcase school colors will put a smile on their face. And let’s face it, they desire some chocolate after a long school year.
