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.

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.

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.
