With a little planning and creativity, you can find lots of ways to save on assembling an Easter basket this year. Not only can you save; you can make the gift-giving fun and exciting, too.
First, buy Easter baskets at a craft store on sale or with a 40 percent-off coupon. Find something durable, then reuse it from year to year.
Do you keep a gift closet full of items you find on clearance or score for free with coupons? If so, don’t forget to scour your gift closet for possible basket fillers. Lotions, candy, travel-size toiletries, etc., all make great fillers and might be waiting for you in your gift closet. Don’t forget to look.
Don’t pay full price for Easter candy. Instead, look for candy coupons in your Sunday newspaper, then match them with a sale. You’ll find the best deals at drugstores and national retail stores. Check these retailers first and do some price comparisons.
