Easter Sales

by GettingFreedom on April 15, 2009

You should know by now that I love a good deal. Catching one can really make my day!

Right now all the stores are desperate to get rid of their extra Easter goodies. Most of the time you can get them anywhere from 50%-75% off this week. Stock up now!

A couple years ago at the after Easter sales I picked up the dying cups. I had been eying them, but I thought the asking price was a little steep for what they were. I paid very little for these, and I re-use them every year. Just wash them out when you are done using them, dry completely and pack away in an air tight container and store away.

Now all I need to pick up ever year is the egg dye! I try to pick up a clearanced box (or 2), and we are set for the following year. Generally I pay no more than .50¢ a box. If I miss a clearance, the stash that I have accumualted is good enough!

It is also a good time to stock up on Easter baskets. You can pick these up fairly cheap, and they can last for years to come, just tuck them away in a storage box with the rest of your Easter goodies. Our kids re-use theirs every year, and will continue to do so until they start to fall apart.

Be sure to pick up some clearanced Easter chocolate while you’re at it–you deserve it for saving money! :)

If I have any extra egg decorating stickers, egg wraps or anything else, I just pop it all in a ziploc bag and store it with the rest of my stash. Nothing goes to waste!

Shopping after holiday clearance sales has saved me loads of cash. Same product, half the price. It works for me!
