    I couldn't believe the price of eggs this year (well, ok, it's only the first time that I have really bought some, so maybe I was paying attention)....

    I have spent probably $100.. a couple of weeks ago I let DD buy easter eggs at the shop and carry them around in a basket, and then I drove down the coast to buy her something special. everythign comes with a torch, and last year she got a torch and it set on fire.., so no torches. I got some Dora thing, and then a little basket and some other eggs because I have a need to put eggs in a basket inside of a towel like we did when we were kids...

    .......... and then because I was in the hospital having an operation this week I bought her a schleisch rabbit hutch and some rabbits for Sunday because she really has been the most amazingly brave big girl..so that was another $35.

    And then I have eatne some of her eggs (bad Mummy, but meh, I haven't been able to eat chcocolate for 6 months, and I am partying like my **** is invincible), so I will probably have to replace them.

    Wow I'm so surprised at how much some of you say you spend on chocolate eggs

    I am an Easter stinge. DS will get a few eggs in an egg hunt, and that's that. Are PJ's the done thing for Easter? I quite like that idea. Practical.

    I worked at Kmart as a teen and people would come through spending $200-$500 on eggs consistently.

    I'm not surprised by that number at all.

    I bought my easter eggs yesterday. Spent about $40. This was something for myself and DH plus my parents, MIL, and my sister and her fiancé.

    As DS is way too little for chocolate I bought him a custom made Easter bunny and a cute onesie with a bunny on it. These cost me less than the chocolate!

    I did my easter shopping yesterday at Big W.

    I bought for DD, DS1 DS2, DH, my Mum, my Sister, 3 Nieces and my Nephew.

    I spent $95 in total, but $45 of that was on a new pair of slippers each for DD, DS1 and DS2 as their non-chocolate present.

    I've spent $50 on DH's family (5 people) only because they do a thing where evenings gets each other eggs. DS is too young. I've sewn him a couple of pairs of pj pants.

    Lots of families I know do pj's for easter because it is the time of year we are going into winter and most kids need new ones. Mine are getting two pairs of winter jammies each, a pair of slippers each and a smallish boxed egg each, because they would feel ripped off if the bunny didn't bring chocolate. Having the bunny bring pj's makes him seem more generous than he really is, they needed the pj's anyway, this way it is just a little more exciting to get them.

    Otherwise, I am a stinge too. I haven't bought my nephews anything, they will get enough from my parents and their parents. I am hoping that their family hasn't bought anything for my kids.
