Ideas to Save Money at Halloween

Does the thought of spending excessive amounts of money on costumes, candy, decorating supplies and parties have you scared this Halloween? Never fear. If you are searching for ideas to save money, we’ve got some BOO-tiful tips that will help you cut back on Halloween spending in order to make the holiday less frightful for your bank account.

Ideas to Help You Scare up Some Savings this Halloween

Costumes: Don’t let the high price of brand new pre-made costumes take a bite out of your budget this Halloween. You can get a ghost of a deal on second-hand items from your local thrift store. Although many thrift stores and second-hand shops offer actual costumes, many times you can save even more by purchasing clothing and accessories to create your own. If these savings aren’t ghoulish enough for you, consider rummaging through your own closet and the closets of friends and family members for clothing that can be altered or added to in order to create something free and one of a kind.

Candy and Treats: Haunt the Halloween aisle the day before or the day of Halloween. Some stores significantly discount Halloween items at the last minute in order to make room for Christmas themed items. Additional ideas to save money include purchasing gum or less popular candy varieties, buying Halloween treats in bulk or purchasing or making inexpensive party favors in place of edible items.

Decorating Supplies: Purchasing store bought decorations during the weeks prior to Halloween can leave your wallet howling in pain. Consider purchasing a variety of craft supplies or use items that you already have at home to hand make decorations that are certain to create the cryptic atmosphere you are looking for. No time to make your own? Purchase Halloween decorating items off-season, and store them until you are ready to decorate!

Halloween Parties: Paying for Halloween party supplies, special treats and other goodies as well as hosting your own haunted house party can leave you feeling as if you are buried in debt if you are not careful. Consider hosting a scavenger hunt or other type of activity that doesn’t cost as much, combine your frightful efforts with others for a single event, or simply skip the party all together.

Family Fun: Instead of heading to the movies to get your scream on, and then spending oodles of cash on dinner at your favorite restaurant this Halloween, forgo these expensive activities and create your own hocus-pocus at home. Host a scary movie night with your family and rent your favorite old frightening flicks to watch as you munch on homemade treats instead. There are a multitude of recipes for unique homemade Halloween foods and other creative ideas to save money available on the internet as well.

Don’t be terrified by monstrous expenses this Halloween. Simply follow these creative tips and ideas to save money, and you can still have a howling good time on Halloween without becoming buried in bills.
