12 Money Savings Tips for Halloween


Many venues, family and friends have planned Halloween parties or plan to attend events to celebrate Halloween.  Every year kids and adults celebrate Halloween either by trick or treating or attending Halloween parties or both. Companies advertise sales to lure customers into stores to purchase candy, costumes or other items for Halloween. Don’t get carried away with the sales and spend more money than you have or need to.

There are several ways to celebrate Halloween by decorating pumpkins, making pumpkin pie, buying candy for trick-or-treaters, jack-o-lanterns, decorations, bobbing for apples, and more. Due to Hurricane Sandy some may not be able to celebrate this year.  If you are lucky enough to attend an event or assist with trick-or-treating here are some 12 money savings tips for Halloween.

  1. Buy decorations during store sales. You can save anywhere from 20-70% off the original price.
  2. Make your own decorations, costumes, drinks or candy.
  3. Visit local vendors and haggle to good a good deal.
