It’s almost that spooky time of year again! Halloween is such an exciting holiday, and both children and adults can dress up and have fun. It can easily, however, give you a budget scare. Here are just a few tips for enjoying your Halloween without a scary surprise when you look at your bank account.
- The costumes are normally one of the bigger expenses for Halloween. Why not make your own costume or try and buy one used? It’s likely that you’ll only wear it once as an adult, and kids may grow out of this year’s costume by next year.
- If you like staying home and handing out candy, buy it on sale. Depending on how many bags you end up purchasing, it could save you a significant amount of money.
- If you prefer haunted houses for your October entertainment, see if any of the ones near you offer cheaper tickets on non-peak nights. You may be able to save a few dollars while avoiding the bigger crowds.
- Save on decorations by buying them after Halloween for the next year. Instead of paying full price for that skeleton or spider web, wait until they go on sale. If you think they may sell out before Halloween, try and wait for a sale or coupon.
Halloween is a fun holiday, but it shouldn’t make you afraid to look at your bank account. These are just a few ways to try and save some money while still having a hauntingly good time.
