10 Ways to Save on Halloween

It’s almost time for the scariest time of the year – Halloween! That means that it’s time to pull out the spooky, scary skeletons and restock on fog machine liquid. We think that most people can agree with us when we say that Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year. Think about all that you can do during this single day. You get to dress up in costumes, eat all the candy you can get your hands on, and some of us drink any alcohol that’s in sight. Okay, sure, a lot of us turn it into a whole month of festivities, but the point remains the same: it’s the best.

That being said, what’s not so great about this holiday is the fact that it’s so freaking expensive. Considering most of the items need to be purchased from Halloween stores that have a monopoly, something as simple as decorating your house can turn into a significant expense. Between candy, costumes, and creepy-fying your place, the costs of Halloween can become a problem.

Fret not! Leave that for the little ones that walk across an animatronic witch. We’ve made this slideshow for you. Like every holiday, you can actually cut costs on decorating and plenty of other parts of this pumpkin-y time of year. From shopping around to DIY, we’ve got 10 tips that you can use to help decrease your Halloween costs.

We’re just going to say that saving money on decorating and costumes means that you can buy more candy. Perfect, right?
