Spending time with your family is one of the key qualities of Easter, but whether you’re staying at home or you’re out and about, Easter doesn’t have to break the bank. As a peak season with school holidays to consider, the amount it can cost to head out over the Easter holiday can be expensive, but you don’t have to worry. From the chocolate eggs, through to heading abroad this Easter, there are a number of things to help you save money so you can budget for other times of the year, such as birthdays and Christmas. If you’ve been hit with a financial emergency, you may be able to find a payday loan to help you deal with unexpected bills. However, saving money on your Easter weekend is one of the simplest ways to ensure that you can build up and stick to a budget. Here, we’re taking a look at the top tips for saving money on your Easter weekend.
Saving Money On Easter Eggs
Saving money on Easter eggs can be simple, especially if you’re not seeing your family until after Easter Sunday. As soon as Easter Sunday passes, you can enjoy a number of discounts, with some retailers even selling their Easter eggs up to half price! Alternatively, you may want to consider making the chocolate eggs yourself. Purchase store ‘own-brand’ chocolate and a few moulding templates from a home store such as Lakeland, and voila! A cheap and simple way to provide your family with delicious Easter eggs, at half the price.
Last Minute Holidays In The UK
If you’re truly looking to get away for Easter, but you can’t quite find a trip abroad at a reasonable rate (Easter can see huge hikes in price), then why not take a closer look at last minute holidays in the UK? There are a number of options for you to choose from, and if you book last minute, you’re highly likely to benefit from a number of great deals. Whether you’re searching for luxury bed and breakfasts, spa breaks or a caravan option, there are a great number of last minute holidays in the UK for you to choose from, if you’re looking in the right place. Take a look at a comparison site, find the best deal on there, and then approach the hotel, bed and breakfast, or caravan park directly to see if you can negotiate an even cheaper deal – many hotels are likely to give a discount if you contact them directly, as they will no longer have to pay fees to the comparison site for you to stay there.
Utilise Vouchers & Deals
Around Easter time, you may be able to capitalise on your built-up Tesco Clubcard points, Sainsburys Nectar points or another form of voucher or deal. There are a number of tokens and vouchers that you can claim, and you may even be able to find them by jumping on the train to your destination instead of driving. 2 for 1 vouchers for example are generally offered if you’re travelling to London via the train and can be used for the likes of Chessington World of Adventures, London’s Sea Life Aquarium, Madame Tussauds and many other attractions. Utilising these deals can make a family day out a much cheaper affair, for the whole family (and your wallet) to enjoy.
