Remember setting your Easter basket out empty, hoping with all of your heart the bunny would leave loot in the form of chocolate, candy, chocolate, candy and maybe a package of peeps?
Well these fancy Easter baskets can be messy. Especially if you like playing in the artificial grass (I for one love hiding this grass all over my parent’s house just to ruffle feathers – in shoes, purses, pillowcases, etc…I know what you’re thinking and yes I’m a grown ass woman. Aren’t you glad I’m not your offspring?).
If you find yourself in despair over an annoying adult child’s tendency to play in the fake grass or if you’re so old that your basket has rotted or if you just don’t feel like getting in the garage to get the damn Easter shit down from whatever high as the sky shelf it’s nestled on, here’s an alternative for you that my family uses from time to time.
Just open your kitchen closet where you stash all of those Target/Wal-Mart/grocery of choice plastic bags (because you know you have 1,435 just lying around), grab a handful and presto chango! You have quick, easy Easter baskets. My family first thought of this idea when we were at Aunt Nancy’s ready to have an egg hunt but all basketless. The horror.
Yeah, I know I come from a family of classy geniuses (we don’t refer to ourselves as the Griswolds for nothing).
You’re welcome for the idea.
I liked your green hair and you have must had the time of your life …..hahaha ! Xoxo
Was a good time, indeed. Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
haha love it! griswolds are the best! gotta get creative when you can! love the plastic bag baskets 🙂
You know, we do what we gotta do sometimes!
super happy snapshots!!!
And great memories of super fun times! 🙂
Thanks for the memories. Those were such fun Easters. We always have a great time when we get together. Just doesn’t happen often enough! Love you.
Agreed about not happening enough but they were sure fun times! Love you too!
Hello sis, nice to meet you!
The Last Basket We Got Had Three Little Kittens In It. & I Have No Idea Why Every Word Is Capitalized. Green Hair Just Does Not Look Natural, Maybe Pink Next Time 😉
A basket with three kittens sounds right up my alley! And pink hair next time for sure. 🙂 The capitalized words are a nice touch, regardless of how they happened!
Wow! Great idea! Although I just checked and I have only 1,376 plastic bags available. But…I am heading out to Walmart now to add to my supply. I’ll request the cashier triple bag my beer and assorted heavily salted snack items. This should up my bag count considerably. 🙂
HAHAHAHAHA! If you abide by the rules you just set, you’ll have just the proper amount of bags come Sunday. Hell, buy extra beer and skip the egg hunt and hide beer all over the yard. But be sure to keep the bags tripled up!
Ok, I’m back from Walmart with beer and extra bags.
After several beers though I’ve forgotten what I’m supposed to do with the bags. Oh yeah, put the empties in ’em. Cool.
Laughing my butt off – yes, I do have a bunch of target/walmart plastic bags stashed in my pantry – and we have used them in the past for Halloween treats. Never thought of using them for an easter egg hunt – classic idea!
Natasha – now you, too can keep it real! It was one of those ‘what are we going to do’ moments and out came the plastic! At least we’re sort of recycling, right?!
My plastic bags are ready, maybe we will add grass this year.
The addition of grass is fab idea!
