Planning for Halloween the Affordable Way



Halloween can be an expensive holiday. From the candy to the costumes, it definitely adds up quickly. You may feel pressured to decorate your home spooky looking and buying your kids the coolest of costumes. But instead of spending a fortune on expensive costumes and buying a ton of candy, think of creative ways to experience Halloween in a frugal way, such as using coupons from, and with the intent on not spending more money than what’s necessary.


DIY Costumes – Costumes are quite simple to make, so why not use clothing and accessories that you already having at home? It’s easy to create a nurse, cartoon character, or actor and actress costume as opposed to buying an expensive one in a Halloween shop. Plus – you can incorporate your own creativity into the costume instead of being stuck with a particular design. So start brainstorming and see what you can come up with from clothing and accessories that you already have in your home!


Pull Left Over Candy Together – If your kids love candy and you already have the packaged candy bars and more at home, instead of going to the store and buying several bags of candy, pull together what you already have. You may be surprised with how much candy you can give away to trick-or-treaters and you might be able to get away with only buying one bag of candy instead of several. It’s a simple and easy way to save money this Halloween time.


Save on Decorations – Instead of going out and buying brand new decorations for Halloween, why not stick with your Thanksgiving decorations? Halloween will quickly fall into Thanksgiving time and by combining your decorations it will help you save money and decoration time! Stick with the basic decorations for Halloween, such as buying a few pumpkins and utilizing nature’s natural elements such as pinecones, acorns, twigs, and other pieces.
