Halloween is my favorite holiday! It was when I was a child- you get to dress up, go to parties, and get free candy. It still is! I still dress up, go to parties, and now I get to decorate. The only thing I don’t love is how expensive the holiday is. Bags of candy go for around 10-$20 (and you’re usually getting more than one bag), costumes can be more than $50, and decorations can be incredibly expensive as well. However, there are plenty of tricks to saving during the holidays. I always DIY my costumes, and decorations (or I go to the dollar store). You can also use coupons for things! Read this post at Raking In The Savings for how to save on candy:
-Take advantage of coupons and sales
-Buy small, not full bars
-Buy in bulk from Sam’s Club or Costco
-Always check dollar stores
-Buy generic, not Halloween themed candies
-Stick to cheaper candies like lollipops and and hard candies instead of expensive chocolate.
