Twitter and Facebook Poll: How Much Will You Spend For Easter?

Posted on 04/06/2012

The average American will shell out $145.28 for Easter stuff. That includes Easter apparel, food, decorations and, of course, chocolate. That’s an 11 percent increase compared to last year. With total spending expected to reach $16.8 billion according to the National Retail Federation, we wanted to know what you plan to spend for Easter.

Facebook Sue Long Budensiek: I sent packages to all my grandkids and the postage alone was $116 to China, well worth every penny to watch their little faces light up when that box was opened. So thankful for postal systems that get it to them in 1 week and Skype to see their little faces.

Chris Cloud: Nothing. It makes me so sad to think how we've reduced Easter to fancy outfits and eggs.
Rusty Stafford: Probably the most expensive thing for me will be the fresh-looking shirt and tie I buy for church!

Kelly Langford: I'll spend only about $15 on Easter cards that I'll send to our out of state nieces and nephews.

Tamara Harrison: Honestly, probably just a $1 little chocolate egg for my hubby, if that!

Melissa Lanzourakis-Joens: I'll spend about $100 on food. No candy! Just hamburgers for grilling out, potato salad and beer. All the essentials for Easter dinner.

Jerelle Brown: I spent $1.85 on chocolate covered marshmallow eggs today... that's my favorite part of Easter! I don't think I will be getting anything else though. I wanted to make an Easter basket for my husband Tyler but he doesn't really like candy, so it would basically be for me! Haha!

Twitter :
@Savvyassistants: Not doing much this year… just Easter brunch & Easter candy for the cousins :)
@KatieMullinax: Not a dime. I don't have kids, so I don't even know what I'd buy.
@DrMarina: I am making lots of home made from scratch, no family coming to visit this year just some friends. I will be spending about $75.
