Easter Decorating $20 trip

I had a rare moment today to spend time with just my little granddaughter Adleigh, and I have been itching to do a little Easter decorating, so we went into town and went to the Dollar Tree to see what we could find. I say we, she's two so I am pretty sure she didn't care about anything but the candy!!
I gave myself a $20 budget for the day, just to see how hard it would be. I had considered going to Hobby Lobby, however Hobby Lobby for me is a 45 minute drive. The Dollar Tree is a 15 mile drive, so it won out.
This will be the first Easter that any of my kids have had to work. Because of this, we are going to have our family Easter get together on Saturday evening. I am going to do it much like our annual summer parties LOL...I am going to set up tables outside, one for food, one for Easter baskets and candy, and one to eat at. More than likely we will end up smoking ribs and sausage and then Easter Egg hunting until dark. Jackie and cody won't be off work until 6 that evening, so we won't start until about 6:30'ish. I've got a good mind to start inviting friends over with their little ones and making it a party..haha y'all know I can't resist!!
By the way, total spent today was $20.57
