You probably know I LOVE after-holiday shopping. You can see it in my previous posts after Halloween and Christmas. It’s pretty much the only time I buy holiday items, when they’re 50% or more off in the days following the holiday.
While grocery shopping at Wal-Mart yesterday I wasn’t even thinking of after-Easter shopping until I saw the tons of Easter items they still had. So I grabbed a few things and took pics of a few others to give you some ideas on how to take advantage of these great deals.
The most obvious thing to do is to save the clearance items to use next year. And the good thing is you could find enough items to totally set you up, so you won’t have to pay full price for anything next year.. except the candy. I would not suggest holding candy for a year. 🙂
Above you can see great options to use for next year including:
1- Easter baskets – 2- ‘Grass’ basket filler – 3- And lots of Easter decor. I couldn’t resist this cute wooden bunny for $2 and my kids love the window clings that I got for just $1 each.
4- Spring decor
The best thing is to get items you can use right away. There’s still two months left in spring so unless it actually says Easter on it, I think all these decorations are perfect now.
I’m in love with this rustic wreath bunny. You can hang it on the front door or use it with inside decor. And it was only $5.
5- Nursery or kids’ room decor
I found so many sweet things that would look absolutely adorable in a baby nursery. I mean, I almost wanted another baby just to decorate a nursery. Seriously, just look at that sweet plush lamb! And it could work for boy or girl rooms. Adorable goes with any gender. 🙂
6- Birthday party decorations/supplies/gift bags
I got two packs of these super cute, multi-colored paper straws for just 50 cents each. I plan to use them for my daughter’s unicorn themed birthday party this fall.
And these tutu and super hero baskets could be great gift ‘bags’ for party guests.
7- Gift it
I love giving cute kitchen utensils as gifts. You could take the Happy Easter tag off these adorable spatulas and pair them with a bag of cookie or cake mix as a gift to a friend or your kids’ teacher.
8- Gift bag/basket filler
Stores have tons of Easter ‘grass’ filler left and they’re now super cheap and come in lots of cute colors. You could use it as filler for gift bags or baskets throughout the year. I grabbed 4 bags at just 50 cents each.
9- Table settings
This would be a cute and functional way to display napkins and utensils for a spring dinner party or just for every day convenience on your dining table. I grabbed two of these cute bunny baskets for only $2.44 each.
And this is where the second basket went. My daughter confiscated it for toy storage. It’s an adorable and simple way to gather up some special toys.
All of these items were purchased or spotted at Wal-Mart. But this post is not sponsored. I just love saving at Wal-Mart.
If you hurry, you might be able to snag some of these frugal finds! And if you do, I’d love to read about it in the comments below!
Good Luck & Happy Spring!
