How to Build a $10 Easter Basket3:25 PM
We have had some very lavish Easter baskets in past years. Due to our current budget (we're doing some home remodeling) and the fact that we have six kids to buy baskets for, we've taken it upon ourselves to limit it to a $10 per basket spend. Walmart asked us to create them using the items found in their stores.
But what can you put together with just ten bucks?
As it turns out... quite an adorable basket!
We headed to our local Blair store, and hit the aisles looking for items that only cost $1. Sure, dollar stores have things you can buy for a buck, but what about Walmart? We found candy, toys, and even cute little stuffies that fit nicely inside our baskets -- all for just a buck. I also picked up some cute plastic pails to put everything in. (Why pails instead of traditional fiber baskets? They can be reused again and again for toys, in the sandbox, or for holding bath toys!)
Here's the basket we put together for one of the boys.
As you can see, the $10 spend got him lots of goodies! I don't think he'll find it lacking, and we were able to stay under budget. The basket included:
- Reusable pail
- Stuffed bunny
- Mini gumball machine
- Egg Cup with straw
- Spongebob Gummy pop
- Plastic eggs for hiding
- Coloring book
- Sour Patch Kids (Easter edition)
