Wow thats a huge amount of money! I haven't spent anything yet. Maybe a $5 egg each for our three kids but that'll be it. They dont even really eat them, thankgoodness, there behaviour would be horrible LOL they are such a waste of money anyway! Oops forgot the best part, gotta add a packet of hot cross buns in there too.

We have baked yummy cupcakes for gifts and stuck a couple of those little decoration chickens in to make it more Easter like.

I have no idea if that's high or not - how many people shop there?
DD's getting one small bunny, DH one lindt egg and I've bought myself a small bunny for nostalgia. I've got pastic eggs left over from last year that I'm going to use for an Easter egg hunt.
I didn't think we were being particularly controlled, I just thought that was normal for Easter.

Does that include hot cross buns? Like is that the total 'Easter' budget. I buy like 2 packs of 8 buns every week.
Next time they come up cheap I'm buying a heap to freeze!!! I've been eating them since new years. Why can't they be all year round?

We spent about $6 each on the kids for Easter. I'll bake some hot cross buns and other traditional Easter foods from around the world. We have a hunt and they divide the spoils.
Although I saw a lady in the supermarket with her two kids this morning and her trolley was LOADED with eggs and bunnies.
We're not giving any this year. And when we do get together with family we do a combined hunt and each adult puts in 5 eggs per each of their children... So I contribute 25 eggs, and my sisters contribute 5, and 10... that way no one has to spend heaps on other people's kids, but all the kids get the same amount of eggs.

We don't buy any chocolate but I spend about $50. I buy her some PJs and usually some Ugg boots and maybe a DVD or something.

If 1600 families spent $50 per family ($80,000), it doesn't seem excessive per family. It would be interesting to know the number of people each supermarket serves for more meaningful individual amounts.
Although, i guess that means that millions of dollars is spent in Australia on Easter chocolate, which seems wasteful when you look at it overall.
I haven't bought any eggs this year, but given I tend to finish off my son's and partner's eggs (), I probably won't spend too much.

I bought my kids a $2 bunny each from kmart plus a $3 bag of little eggs to do an egg hunt in our house on Sunday morning. Last of the big spenders
