Easter on a budget

It’s that time of the year again, where the family gets together and the kids become sugar crazy, and sometimes the adults too! However, the long weekend doesn’t have to break the bank one bit if you keep the activities simple, fun and cost-effective. Here are some ways to enjoy Easter 2021 on a budget:

Cook at home
The whole point of Easter is to spend time with loved ones and what better way than creating magic in the kitchen together? Try to eat out once or twice and spend most of the time creating meals yourselves. Whether it’s for a picnic or even for a braai, it’ll taste that much better because it brought you together. Plus no looking at you to pay the bill, you’re welcome!

Put a twist on the Easter Egg Hunt.

It can be more expensive to have separate egg hunts, so rather put money together and choose one person in the family to transform their house into an Easter wonderland. Simply divide the responsibilities amongst yourselves, for instance, have one person buy chocolates and the other can buy the decor.

Re-use old decor and accessories.

There’s no need to buy new baskets or banners for the Easter Egg Hunt, make the old as good as new again and use what is around the house. All that is left to do is buy sweet delectable treats at Pick n’ Pay, Super Spar or Woolworths Food.
