Egg-conomical Easter Ideas

Egg-conomical Easter Ideas

Between clothing, decorations, gifts, candy, food, flowers, baskets, and more – it’s easy to overspend this Easter. Don’t break the bank this spring season, with Max’s thrifty Easter tips you and your home will look like a million bucks, without paying for it. Let’s hop to it!

Spring for Homemade Decor

Whether you are designing the table for dinner, or dressing up the house with spring decor, nothing keeps the price tag down more than a little DIY.

To give your table setting a fresh spring look – use a table runner that you already own. Spray paint faded table mats a cheery shade of green or yellow. Paint an old vase a pretty bright white to give it new life and fill with inexpensive faux flowers. Round out your table decor with a DIY Moss Basket:

Look around your home for décor ideas before you shell out for new duds. Dress up plastic eggs from the dollar store by wrapping them in twine and yarn. Update your home by adding festive pillows. If you are up to the challenge – sew them yourself! Choose patterns such as bunnies, carrots, and florals. Don’t forget the front door! Make your own Easter themed wreath, by using an inexpensive grapevine wreath and hot gluing on colorful eggs.

Speaking of eggs…

Eggceptional Easter Eggs

There is no need to spend money to dye eggs this holiday season. Using items from around the house, you can have beautiful and bright eggs in no time! One of the simplest (and thriftiest) ways to dye eggs is to combine 1 tablespoon of food coloring and 2 tsp. of vinegar to boiling water. Next, add the eggs – for darker eggs, leave them in longer. How eggciting!

Keep it repurposed, peeps

Thrifty 101: Reuse where you can!

  • Recycle Halloween Candy – freeze your leftover Halloween candy or buy the marked down bags after Valentine’s Day and tuck them away in your freezer.
  • A Wreath for all Seasons – Use a simple grapevine wreath for all holidays. Simply change out the décor for the Easter holiday.
  • Cottontail makeover – Give any of your old Easter decorations a facelift, like display bunnies, by adding a coat of paint. You can even paint inexpensive items from the dollar store.
  • Old clothes, new life – Instead of purchasing a whole new outfit, use what you already have. Couple an old dress with a colorful necklace or hat. For kid’s outfits, mix and match old outfits for a fresh look, or purchase one inexpensive clothing item to pair with an existing piece.

On the Hunt for the Perfect Meal

When planning Easter dinner or brunch, try to buy as early as you can for added savings. Check out a few stores that to find the best deals, and always use coupons where you can. Keep the menu simple: Deviled eggs, a colorful salad, rolls, honey-glazed ham and roasted carrots. Design your weekly menu around what you are planning to serve on Sunday. Mix leftover ham with scalloped potatoes for dinner during the week. Add jam to leftover rolls for a quick breakfast treat.

Have a Hoppy Hoppy Easter!

With a little creative planning from decorating your home to digging into dinner – you can stick to your budget and still have an eggcellent Easter! Enjoy the day, peeps!
