Name Brand vs. Store Brand: Putting them to the Test

$5 Frugal Easter Feast: Think Outside the Box

We are mostly just using what we have for Easter this year.  I will buy potatoes for 99 cents for a bag and broccoli for 79 cents per pound.  Other than that, we are just going to use what we have on hand.  If you don't have a lot to spend this year, just think outside the box.  No one said that you have to have ham for Easter.  Think of other things like an Easter brunch with omelettes and hashbrowns and fruit, an inexpensive cut of chicken with rice from the bulk section of the store, or have spaghetti with a veggie and some inexpensive fruit.  Think of having friends over and have a potluck.  Don't let the tight budget make you feel like you can't have a nice meal for the holiday.  The most important thing is to celebrate the real reason we have Easter and to spend the time with family and friends.  Think outside the box and be creative.  Remember, no one said you have to have ham!

 

Do you have some ideas for a very frugal Easter?

I like this idea...for whatever holiday or special occasion. Plus, it would be really fun to have the guests involved in making the decision by looking in your pantry/freezer/frig etc. I'll bet the meal/day would be a memorable one!
