The holidays can be expensive, so start saving early by being thrifty for Halloween. Be prepared for those unexpected end-of-year expenses through reducing your spending this October.
Here are two tips to help you save on Halloween:
- Wait to carve pumpkins. Plan on carving the pumpkins on Halloween instead of earlier in the season when the pumpkins are prone to rot. Many stores sell pumpkins at deep discounts right around Halloween to decrease their inventory before the big post-Halloween price drop.
- Make your own costumes. Forget the typical, store-bought dress-up paraphernalia. Homemade costumes can be creative and original. Plus, kids love getting hands-on with making their own costume to be proud of.
