Easter Challenge: Candy-Free Easter Baskets Under $10!

I’m kind of obsessed with dollar stores right now.  Not kind of.  Seriously.  It’s a little insane how many times I’ve been to the local Dollar Tree lately.  First I used it as incentive for my 3 year old to sleep in her own bed all night.  Now I think I just come up with any excuse to go, because I can always find awesome things for just a buck!

Last year I challenged myself to come up with a candy-free Easter Basket for my daughter: Candy-Free Easter Basket IdeasYou can read about it here if you like.

This year, I took the challenge one step further and decided to see if I could put together Candy-Free Easter baskets for both my girls for less than $10 each.  Yes, that’s right.  An entire Easter basket free of candy for under $10.

One trip to the Dollar Tree later, and I think I did a pretty good job!

Here are the breakdowns for each basket:

Basket #1
