More Ideas on How to Save This Halloween
The coupon codes above will help you get a discount on Halloween costumes, décor, and party supplies. For those looking for more money-saving advice, try these five Halloween saving’s tricks.
1. Swap Costumes With a Friend
If you have kids that are similar ages/sizes, then you can trade costumes. Even if your children are different sizes, borrow the accessories and save.
2. Don’t Skip the Dollar Store
Your local dollar store and .99-Cent Only Store can be great shops for affordable Halloween décor and costume props. Just be advised before buying candy there. It might cost you more than buying candy at a warehouse.
3. Wait to Buy Pumpkins
If you wait until the 30th to buy your Halloween pumpkin, you can save almost half the cost, depending on the seller. One year, at Trader Joes, I received a free pumpkin on the 31st.
4. Look for Free Activities
Most communities offer free fall activities to the public. Check with your city’s parks, churches, and mall to see what is being offered.
5. DIY Fall Decorations
Pinterest is a well of good ideas for inexpensive DIY décor ideas. Also, check out 13 Scariest Halloween Frights You Can Make From Trash.
