Authorities in Massachusetts say that an intoxicated man was pulled from the cold waters of Hyannis Harbor Sunday morning after he fell in while washing his clothes. Barnstable police were called around 2:00 a.m. for a report of a person stumbling around the docks at Hyannis Harbor while trying to do laundry in the water. When officers arrived at the docks, they spotted a pile of laundry and a man “submerged in the harbor up to his neck while clinging to the floating pier.” The man spent several minutes yelling for help. Officers pulled the 57-year-old Hyannis man from the water. According to police, “The male was conscious and breathing and appeared to be heavily intoxicated. He told police he was trying to wash his clothes when he tumbled off the dock into the water.” The man was taken to Cape Cod Hospital by Hyannis Rescue for treatment. (https://bit.ly/2UF2fwV)

Below please find some tips on how to save money for Easter this year:Make your own basket and reuse them every year.Lots of stores offer pre-wrapped, themed Easter baskets, but don’t be swayed by their cuteness. You can easily do this yourself and make it a fun and sentimental tradition, and for a lot cheaper! Baskets, Easter grass, plastic eggs and other decorations can be reused every year and save you a lot of money. And if you’re feeling a little artsy, you can even make decorations instead of purchasing them! Shred green paper for homemade Easter grass and create your own bunny ears out of paper to attach to headbands and hats. Purchase goodies at discounted rates.Fun Easter baskets should be filled with a mix of candy, creative gifts, crafts and small toys that are fun for all kids. Target, Walmart, your local grocery store and dollar stores are all perfect places to find great deals on these items. If you’re looking to buy Easter-themed goodies, take note that they’ll be marked at full price until after the holiday. Once they’re marked down, definitely stock up on themed items for the next year so you’ll have a festive basket to give. Best dressedOutfits for Easter can add up – especially if you have children. With 42 percent of Americans purchasing new outfits for the holiday, it’s important to look for ways to save. Shop via a cashback site like TopCashback.com to earn a percentage back of the money you spend on qualifying purchases. You can shop your favorite retailers like Target, Macy's and Walmart while receiving a percentage of your purchase back in cashback.Home cooked meals Going out for Easter brunch or dinner can be costly. Restaurants sometimes offer fixed pricing and a limited menu selection, which can be hard on the wallet, and stomach – if you have picky eaters in your family. Instead, cook the meals at home or host a potluck with your friends and family. You’ll save money and be able to share the day with loved ones all while eating your favorite holiday dishes.
