    I'm not surprised. I bought groceries today & commented to the checkout operator how busy it was. She told me the 2 trading days before Easter are apparently their busiest time of year :-0

    I bought DS a $5 egg. DH gets a $6 egg (from DS) and my parents & their partners each get $5 Lindt bunnies.

    It all adds up though.

    Cause everyone thinks the world is going to end if the shops are closed. Mind you, those 2 trading days are broken up by non trade days.

    If people can't survive without shops for 24 hours they really need to take a long hard look in the mirror.

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.
    This bit..or I am going to have to break into my other hidden easter egg stash.

    I got all my Easter eggs at Kmart and big w. I'm not surprised but i am shocked if that makes sense. Thats a lot of money for just one shop for just easter eggs. I'm not really into Easter it's just chocolate (not religious) but the kids enjoy it so I do it for them. I spent about $60 on dd and her 7 cousins. I still think I spent too much.

    I'm not surprised. Easter eggs are expensive.

    I went to the grocery clearance store and they had 2 for $5 of the purple Cadbury bunnies. So 1 for ds (who is only 1 and will get a little taste and I'll eat the rest hehhe) and 1 for dh. Also got a bag of red tulip eggs for $2.50. So a total $7.50 on Easter chocolate.

    My mum was going to buy ds something but she didn't know what I get as we move interstate in 5 weeks, and she didn't want to get chocolate. So she just gave us the $20 cash.

    I may buy some pjs for him as he has none.

    I bought my nephew a dinner set. It has a little tea cup style cup, a bowl, a plate, a knife, fork and spoon. It's a good quality one, melamime with stainless steel cutlery. It's cream and blue. I stuck a toy duckling in with it, but my kitten took the duckling and claimed it so my nephew just has a dinner set. He's 11 months old and so far eats with his fingers off the floor, but I try to help them be civilised.
