Some Boy’s First Easter

I was determined not to spend too much on his first Easter basket, so we piled into the car and headed to Kmart to check out their Easter goodies. I like that Kmart has a lot of stuff at a great price AND they have weekly sales advertised in their circular, plus I get extra discounts as a member of their Shop Your Way rewards program. I also scope out deals on their Twitter and Facebook accounts. We ended up getting everything for his first Easter basket (including a necessity or two that I’ve been meaning to pick up for him anyway) for less than $30.

I was given the challenge to Build A Basket on a $30.00 Budget for Easter and realized that this was the perfect opportunity to make the Tutu Easter Basket. I went shopping at Kmart to see what I could find. When I looked through the Kmart circular I noticed that if I spend $30 in the Easter department I could earn $5.00 in Shop your Way Rewards!

Build a Basket {on a budget} Since I am the official Easter Bunny helper around our house, my job is to help the Easter Bunny find the perfect goodies for each child’s basket. And since I’ve got 5 kiddos the Easter Bunny has to work within a budget. So I was super excited to be asked to participate in the Kmart Easter Build A Basket Challenge! The assignment was to shop my local Kmart and try to build a basket while keeping within my $50 price range.

I love to make the holidays special. It’s easy to shop for my three girly girls… in the sense that I always know just what they want.  Anything plush, cute and girly!  However… it is not always easy to stick to a budget!  So I recently took on a challenge.  What was the challenge? Spend 30 dollars total to create an Easter Basket!  Instead of building just one Easter basket, I built three!!!  I had to be very frugal and so I went to KMart to see what good deals I could get there.

An Old World Easter Basket Recently, I had the opportunity to shop for an Easter basket on a budget through a Collective Bias campaign on behalf of Kmart stores. I knew that this project would be a terrific creative challenge to put my flair for the “vintage” to the test.

I’m SO excited that Easter is almost upon us! I hadn’t really thought about what I’d give the boys for Easter, but was SUPER EXCITED about this challenge: Kmart Build a Basket on a Budget Challenge! Do you think I can make THREE personalized Easter baskets with goodies from Kmart, and do EACH basket for under $30?? You bet I can!

Budget Friendly Easter Basket Ideas This week I looked through the Kmart circular ad and found some great deals on their toys and Easter items. So I woke up early to beat the crowds, picked up some Starbucks, and headed out with my coupons in hand hoping to find a good deal. Luckily I was able to find some great Easter items on sale. Plus I used my Shop Your Way Rewards (SYWR) card.

Easter Baskets on a Budget This year, we’re on quite the budget so I set a $15 limit for Madilyn’s basket, a $15 limit for Grady’s budget, and a $15 limit for Styles’ gift. Styles is one lucky boy and gets to go on vacation with my dad every Spring Break, which almost always falls around Easter. This year is no exception so he won’t be with us. And rather than set up a basket, I’m going to send him off with a few special things for his camping trip like a Perry the Platypus water bottle that I scored last week.

Ayva Makes An Easter Basket! This year will be no different, but as Ayva gets older, I’m trying to instill a spirit of giving in her as much as possible. Easter is the perfect time to teach a lesson about sharing and giving to others! She and I went to Kmart to pick up some items to make an Easter basket for all of her friends at her preschool. I was really grateful for the sales because I didn’t clip any coupons or plan for my trip at all! I usually get the circular from the Sunday paper, or check the ads out online, but since our trip to Kmart was unexpected, I didn’t have time to do any of that! I have a Kmart Shop Your Way Rewards card, so I was able to get points for my purchase. The points add up every time I shop, and I’m able to redeem the points as cash whenever I shop at Kmart. When we checked out with our basket full of stuff, I was really surprised (and happy) to find that we had been able to stick with our budget.

Angie Knutson-My Four Monkeys

Build A Basket on a Budget Challenge Before we headed to the store, I looked online at Kmart dot com to get an idea of what sales I could expect at my store. For some reason, we didn’t get a Kmart circular in our Sunday paper last week, but you can guarantee that I grabbed one as soon as we got to the store to check and see what deals I may have missed online! I also visited the Shop Your Way Rewards website to check my account. If you’re not familiar with the Shop Your Way Rewards program and you’re a Kmart or Sears fan, you will definitely want to check it out. It’s completely FREE, and you earn points with every purchase. There are also weekly deals and sales only for Shop Your Way Rewards members that you will not want to miss out on.
