A mum -of-ten has left her fans in shock when she revealed how much she spends on her kids at Easter – and it is quite a lot of money.
Alicia Dougherty regularly goes viral on TikTok when she shares how she manages to cope with so many children, and she’s talked about how much it can cost.
Now she’s shared the steps she takes to make sure her family have a special Easter holiday, which includes making each of them a unique gift basket.
In total, once all the Easter eggs and other presents are bought, Alicia, from America, spends over £ 1,140 on her family – and she added that she spends a similar amount each year.

Taking to YouTube, Alicia said: “Easter is one month away but I’ve learned the hard way that you’ve got to shop ahead of time when you’re shopping for ten kids because you need ten of everything.
“If you shop too close to the holiday they’re wiped out. Shopping is oddly my me-time, I enjoy it.”
In the video, she goes to a shop and picks up Easter gifts for her children, before grabbing each child a blanket, a fishing rod, chocolates, marshmallows, and other small items.
In total, she spends $ 843.40 (£ 650), but she adds that she also spent $ 640 (£ 490) on other gifts for them all, bringing the total up to £ 1,140.

She uploads clips of herself preparing meals for the bread, as she expertly remembers all the various different eating requirements for each of her children – all of which she appears to do at an impressive speed.
But some have trolled the doting mum, saying she spends too much on shopping and buys the wrong food – so now she’s hit back at them with a new video.
