A few years ago, I challenged myself to make my children’s Easter baskets for less than $10.00 with “useful” items.  I did this because I didn’t like the way those cheap baskets under $10.00 looked at the store.  Most of these items I found within the dollar section or dollar store.  Since I was filling several baskets while I was at the store I looked for items that had multiple things I could split up.

Rather than wasting money on cellophane wrap, I used clear garbage bags instead to wrap their baskets.

Overall I spent $36.00 for all 4 baskets.  I didn’t put that much candy in their baskets because the Easter bunny hides eggs at our house and those are already filled with candy.  I’d love to hear you ways you save on making Homemade Easter Baskets Ideas.

Simple Home Command Center

Lately we’ve been doing some home renovations.  I’ve been reducing the clutter in my home as well.  One of our biggest issues seemed to be important papers and mail.  Our normal routine was to attached important papers to the fridge.  Our fridge ended up being our kitchen command center.  Then the next thing you know, papers got hidden by other papers and the outside of our fridge was a mess. Something had to be done.  I realized I needed a dedicated space to create a proper home command center.
