Daily Deal-Halloween Savings
Halloween is just over a week away. Thankfully there are some ways to cut costs and still have fun. I’ve highlighted some money saving strategies for Halloween fun, costumes, and decorations.
Swap & Reuse costumes-check with your friends to see if they have any costumes that would work for your child. Don’t be afraid to have your younger child wear an older child’s costume from the year to two before.
Check Consignment, Resale Shops, or Thrift Stores-You can usually find some great costumes for cheap at these places!
Make your own! A mummy is probably the easiest costume you could make using a white sheet. Look through your clothes, kids’ clothes, husband’s clothes, etc and be creative. It’d be easy to make a cowboy or princess costume with items you may have at home. Be creative, have fun!
Carve a pumpkin-I think this is a Halloween must-do! Here are some free pumpkin carving templates.
Paint mini pumpkins-this is an inexpensive, but fun thing for the kids to do. If you have a large family this is much cheaper than buying each child a large pumpkin to carve. Get out the finger paints and have fun!
Ghosts in trees-I saw the mini ghost bags you can fill with leaves and put hang in your trees for $1 at the Dollar Tree. Very inexpensive, but cute and fun!
Fun Food Ideas-
Pumpkin Cupcakes-you can get really creative with cupcakes and frosting to make some sweet treats!
Eyeballs-Use deviled eggs and use a black olive for the pupil.
Crescent Mummy Wraps-Slit a hotdog through the center and and half a slice of cheese. Wrap the hotdog and cheese in a crescent roll to make it look like a mummy. Bake until the crescent rolls are golden brown.
These are just a few ideas to have fun and do something creative with your kids. They are all pretty inexpensive, but will add some excitement to Halloween.
Be sure to check stores after Halloween and shop for next year. I found an adorable giraffe costume at a consignment shop for $3 the day after Halloween.
