Ways to Make Easter Candy More Frugal | FreeCoupons.com It’s not an Easter basket unless it contains a chocolate rabbit. Most kids expect that there will also be a lot of other chocolates and sweets in their baskets. Families who have several children will quickly realize that all that candy can get expensive. Here are some ideas on how to save money on Easter candy.

Use your coupons.
Coupons are a quick and easy way to make the cost of candy a little bit lower. The weeks before Easter are the best time to look for coupons for Easter candy.

Start with the printable coupons that are right here at FreeCoupons.com.

Don’t forget to use the store’s loyalty card when you shop for Easter candy! People who have the loyalty card can get extra savings and sales. Target also has a savings app called Cartwheel that can help lower the price of some items.

Divide things up.
Pour a small amount of M&M’s into a plastic Easter egg. Stick some of the filled eggs inside each child’s Easter basket. Open up the packages of individually wrapped candy and divide it up by putting a couple of pieces into each of your children’s Easter baskets.

Dividing things up lowers the cost because you are spreading one package of candy out instead of giving one entire package to each child. It also makes it possible for all of your kids to receive a little bit of a wide variety of candies. Visually, it will look like more candy than it actually is.

Re-use what you can.
There is another way to fit more Easter candy into your budget. Instead of buying brand new baskets, re-use the ones that the Easter Bunny left last year. Find out how many plastic Easter eggs you already have at home before you buy new ones. Consider using shredded newspaper as a “filler” instead of the plastic Easter grass.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
