Frugal Fridays- Homemade Basket Filler

I don't know about you, but I hate spending money on Easter grass. I would much rather come up with my own version then shell out my husband's hard earned cash, paying for shredded paper.

Anyone with their own paper shredder (which is quite a few people these days) can make use of their shreds for Easter basket filling. It's frugal and "green".

Start with an empty basket. Fill it to your liking with regular shreds. Pick a matching or coordinating color of construction paper or tissue paper and shred it. Add the color to the top of the basket and there you have it, a basket ready to be filled with Easter goodies.

Have a great Easter. Praise be to God for his wonderful plan of Salvation through the death and ressurection of His son, Jesus Christ!
