Ready or not, Easter is right around the corner. According to the National Retail Federation, about eight in 10 adults plan to celebrate Easter this year, spending an average of $151 per person on things like décor, clothing, candy, cards and flowers.
If you’re looking to save money while celebrating this springtime ritual, Goodwill Central Coast is the place to go. We have everything you need to celebrate on a budget, from DIY décor and gifts to seasonal outfits for the whole family. Here are some great springtime crafts you can make for less with help from Goodwill:
Save Money on DIY Easter Baskets at Goodwill
There’s no need to break the bank when buying supplies for Easter baskets. Head to one of our retail outlets to find toys, books and even stuffed animals, all for less than traditional retail prices. Our stores frequently stock wicker baskets in all sizes, which you can quickly spray paint in a pastel color for an instant DIY Easter basket.
Let Goodwill Help You With Your Easter Centerpieces
A decorative centerpiece adds a finishing touch to your table, whether you’re serving Easter breakfast, brunch or dinner. We love the idea of repurposing a cake stand as DIY centerpiece décor.
Shop at Goodwill for a cake stand with a glass lid. Fill the stand with springtime and Easter decorations, such as decorated eggs, flowers, succulent plants, or even brightly-colored fruits such as oranges, lemons, or limes. Once the stand is filled, cover it with the glass lid, or leave it open for your guests to enjoy. It’s sure to bring some extra color and cheer to your table.
Goodwill Can Help Your Green Thumb Thrive
Spring is a perfect time to put your green thumb to use. Because many plants can thrive in just about any type of container, you can get creative with your springtime gardening. For example, you can easily repurpose things like teacups and teapots, coffee mugs, watering cans, glass jars, baskets, bowls and much more into funky indoor or outdoor flower containers. The next time you’re shopping at Goodwill, keep your eyes open for unique containers to use in your at-home garden. It’s a great way to recycle, repurpose, and save money!
