With Halloween just around the corner, many people are wondering how they can save a few extra dollars this year without missing out on all the spooky fun. Like everything else, the best way to save money this Halloween is to plan a Halloween budget and stick to it. Here are some great tips to help you have a great Halloween on a budget.
Candy can be an exorbitant expense for Halloween. If you plan on many trick-or-treaters, candy can add up quickly. When planning out how much candy to buy for the trick-or-treaters this year consider how many bags of candy your household used last year. If you had a lot of candy left over from last year, that’s a good indicator that you don’t need to buy as much this year.
In order to save money on candy and treats, watch the sales carefully. Many retailers will lower the prices as Halloween draws closer. When the sales happen, stock up, and hide the candy so you don’t dip into it before Halloween
Rather than buying candy, consider homemade treats for trick-or-treaters. You can bake cookies, make taffy, or be more creatively ambitious. There are some great DIY treat ides to get you started. Homemade treats might take you a little longer, but they will definitely save you money.
