Frugal living: Easter Eggs

April 7th, 2007 at 12:20 am

Easter Eggs are often a very expensive way to buy mediocre chocolate, but one way to join in the fun without breaking the bank is to wait until next Tuesday to buy. Some stores were already advertising Easter chocolates at 20% off on Saturday - desperate to sell their stock before Sunday. If the pattern of previous year's persists, come Tuesday the stores will be full of Easter Eggs at 50% off.

Of course the traditional method of having cheap Easter eggs is to use food dye and non-toxic paints to colour and decorate hard-boiled hen eggs. This is actually a fun family activity, and a healthy alternative to overdosing on chocolate.

    Yesterday we used egge dye purchased at Dollar General several years ago that I picked up in their clearance bin for .10 a box!! My eggs weren't .65 a dozen thoughFrown You would've thought the grocery store would have had eggs on sale, but they didn't...

    We are buying the after candy clearance sales for my daughters 8th grade dance. Each child will get a bag of candy and coupons to McDonalds as a treat. A friend of mine works at Walgreens and she gets an employee discount. We got two huge boxes of candy after Valentines day for our Girl Scout event for $4! :-) Love clearnance!
