Staying on Budget for Easter

Easter is a special springtime holiday that brings families together. If you are used to cooking a feast fit for a king every Easter but aren’t sure if you can afford all the items for your usual dinner this year, you aren’t alone. At Cash Saver, we understand the importance of sticking to a budget while grocery shopping, especially during a holiday when you might need to purchase extra things such as Easter baskets or decorations. Our main goal is to find deals from manufacturers and keep our prices low around the holidays to help our customers stay on budget.  In this blog post, we’ll share five helpful tips for purchasing your Easter dinner supplies while sticking to your grocery budget.

Tips for Saving

Check out our weekly circular savings and shop early. In addition to our already low prices up and down every aisle, we make sure to label big money-saving items with “WOW! Get it Now!” signs. When you see these items be sure to purchase them quickly because when we run out, the specialty price ends.

Choose side items that can feed a large group at low prices. Here are a few side dishes that won’t break the bank: 

  • Green Bean Casserole
  • Scalloped or Mashed Potatoes
  • Roasted Carrots
  • Boiled Turnip Greens
  • Bread Stuffing
  • Creamed Corn
  • Homemade Rolls
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • Cheesy Broccoli and Rice

Ask for help. There is nothing wrong with asking guests to bring a small item to the Easter dinner. If you feel embarrassed asking them to contribute with a side dish, you can ask each family to bring their drink of choice.

Keep dessert simple. Most people are pretty full after Easter dinner, so there is no need to have extravagant dessert choices. Instead, keep dessert simple and budget-friendly by baking brownies, a strawberry shortcake, cookies, or even a box cake.
