Easter bags on a budget: I chose 2, 2 count "Easter color" paper bags from Dollar Tree over the single, "Easter decorated" bags, netting me 4 plain bags that can more easily be reused for other occassions.
All candy also hails from DT this year, I make sure that it is made in USA both for food safety as well as economic reasons-gotta support American workers! This is all folks, divided into 4 bags for my 4 kids. $5/kid plus tax. A little treat, but nothing over the top, compared to some of the images I've seen on the Internet where, IMO, the Easter haul looks like Christmas! While yes, when the kids were little, a bunny themed, hardcover child's book or a small stuffed plush animal may have also filled their bags, I have never gone overboard with Easter gifts.
