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! )
I’ve got this.
Happy Easter everyone
