Need some unique DIY Easter basket inspiration?

Easter will be here before you know it! With that said, here are some cute ideas that are both easy to accomplish and super adorable! Don’t forget to utilize your local dollar store for supplies and fillers to keep it affordable.

1.) Minnie Mouse Easter Basket

Have a Disney fan? This Minnie Mouse Easter basket was a super easy to accomplish craft and supplies were all from Dollar Tree except for the hair bow we already had on hand. I think a Mickey Mouse version would be easy to make as well by either buying or painting a red basket and adding white circles to the front along with ears to the top.

To Get This Look:
  • Trace two circles onto black craft foam about 1/2 inch apart and connect the ends. Cut and glue them to the top of the basket.
  • Place a dollar store tutu around the basket and glue circles cut from white craft foam to skirt.
  • Glue a pink and white polka dot bow to basket in the middle of the ears.
  • Tip: My Dollar Tree had tons of Minnie Mouse character basket fillers!

2.) Baseball Hat Easter Basket

If you’ve got a baseball or softball fan, consider filling a baseball cap with fun sports related goodies. My son would love this! Maybe even adding Big League Chew and the baseball movie Sandlot would be FUN!

3.) Umbrella Easter Basket

6.) Beach Towel Easter Basket

Instead of a basket, use a rolled up beach towel and flip flops for ears! I love the idea of using googly eyes, pipe cleaners, and a pink craft pom for a cute bunny face. Such a fun idea for a teen Easter basket! Source via Pinterest.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
