Easter budget. Wtf. Just fill a basket with stuff and you're done.
As for your troll question, no you shouldn't treat your stepkids like dirt.
You can't make someone treat you better by treating them worse. Hold your morals and be fair. I only spend about $15 per child which is usually a decent chocolate egg (approx $8), a cheap book ($2) and a pair of winter PJs which I buy at the previous years target clearance sale (approx $5).
Of course it's okay. If they are brats they probably deserve nothing. They should just be bloody grateful.
My husband prefers the cheap shit and my children are just happy to celebrate Easter with chocolate as an added bonus.
Gosh are people budgeting for Easter now? Is this going to turn into Christmas, where people are like "so I've spent $1k on each child, had to save up all year but it's worth it to see their faces"??
Of course it is!! It'll give them even more reasons to be rude to a rude step mother!
Don’t give them any more ammo. Give what you would to your kids. No more, no less.
I don't buy any easter eggs for my kids anymore, old enough to understand!!! We aren't even religous!!! If you have step kids and your own biological kids, you should buy the same for all!!!! Or don't buy any!!!!
I just buy enough for all the kids that we hide for. So 4 kids will get a bunny each, some Cadbury hunting eggs, and some small chicken eggs each. So maybe $50 worth of eggs divided amongst 4 kids.
About 50 this yr. Usually less but we have somewhere to go easter sunday so I brought.them a new outfit each for the day. I only buy 2 chocs from easter bunny then some hunting eggs. No choc from us
I spend 100 on easter candy. And buy my son a small toy, under $25. The candy gets split between hubby, son, and 7 or 8 other cousins.
