A Frugal Easter #5frugalthings

A Frugal Easter

Due to a change in my home circumstances, money is tight again this month. Consequently, I have had to think a bit more carefully about Easter. Usually, I go all out –  big eggs for the kids and lots of them, lots of lovely craft stuff, all the trimmings for an Easter egg hunt. But this year I have kept it thrifty.

  • My son is not massively into crafting so today my daughter is off to a Good Friday craft fest at the local church with her friend. She will spend hours crafting and creating and all for just £3. Far cheaper than me buying in all the stuff.
  • On Easter Sunday my kids will go to their Grandad’s where they will have an Easter egg hunt with their cousins. This year just the one will have to do.
  • So your choice is to buy £1 eggs for 3 for £10 at the Supermarket right? This year I bought the £1 eggs for everyone.
  • As a family we would often go out for lunch on Easter Sunday..not this year a veggie roast dinner made by me will have to do
  • Lots of family time, games, old movies and baking will replace the usual trip to the cinema/bowling for Easter

Sometimes in life you just have to roll with the punches and adjust.


( Ooh and do take a look at the Family Easter Games – for some inspiring ideas that are very easy on the pocket too and these awsome Easter ideas for pre-schoolers)

I’ve got this.

Happy Frugal Easter everyone

    It’s true, rolling with the punches and adjusting is the way to make it in life. You’ve shown real creativity in adapting, you should be really proud!

    I find this so inspirational! Sometimes you have to just pull back from the usual spending when you have other things that require the same money. The kids can always have fun and it doesn’t have to be at additional costs. Great post. Thanks so much for sharing.

    This all sounds lovely. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make memories. Hope all is well.
