Money-Saving Halloween Tips

Oct 30, 2023

Don’t let Halloween spook your pocketbook!

Do you remember the good old days of making costumes out of bed sheets and eating homemade treats – like candy apples and peanut brittle? Well, those inexpensive activities are not as popular as they used to be. The good news is a little creativity and wise spending can make this year’s haunted holiday a treat for both your wallet and your sweet tooth!

Consider these helpful tips:

• Make your own costume or trade with a friend to help cut costs. Search online for fun costume ideas. And consider recycling costumes from previous Halloweens and adding different accessories to create new ones.

• Do your shopping early or late to get the best deals on Halloween supplies. The day after is a perfect opportunity to buy decorations and costumes for next year.

• Buy candy and other treats in bulk at wholesale stores or online.

• Check your local newspaper and mailers for coupons for Halloween supplies. You may even find a coupon for every item you plan to buy.
