Hello everyone! I am Allan. I love to shop around during festival season as many other shopping lovers. Now shopping does not mean we will spend all the money we have been saving since a long time. Wise shoppers can always save money while shopping. Halloween is a festival enjoyed by all age groups. People love to decorate their home; they buy candies and design interesting costume. You must be thinking that you need to spend a lot for all these. Don’t get worried about your budget. Here are few ways to make you Halloween very special without breaking your bank.
Choose perfect time to shop: Normally during festival season many brands and stores release special offers and discount. The first week of the November is the excellent time to start your shopping for Halloween. Around this time you can get every item of your choice with some discount. If you can wait bit more and go for the last minute shopping you may get some additional discount but there is a possibility of not getting the exact item you are looking for.
Shortlist the things you will need: If you go out for shopping without a list in your mind you will end up shopping unnecessary things. Plan the ways you want decorate your home and buy the items you will need to do so. Same thing goes for costumes. Design your costume in imagination first and then go out for shopping for the raw materials. Planning will help you to buy only the things you will need and resist you from buying unnecessary things.
Give a feathery touch to your imagination: Think again before you go out for shopping. Check first if you already have some items in your stock. Sometime we already have the item for home decoration for Halloween, but we cannot realize that how can we make that thing useful. Therefore don’t be in hurry. Go to your store room, kitchen, and study of your children and find some interesting items. Sit back and look at the things around your home and give your imagination feathery touch for making something nice out of the item you already have under your possession.
Take some do it yourself projects: It is not that you need to buy everything to celebrate Halloween. There are many things which you can make at home. If you can sew costume then do it on your own and prepare some exciting costumes. Buy pumpkins from grocery stores at a low cost and decorate them. Involve your children in do it yourself projects. Let them use their imagination too.
Additional tricks: If you bought some amazing costumes for Halloween celebration last year do not left them in the store room. You can exchange those costumes with other friends and families and get theirs for this year. Use low power bulbs for lighting. It will give your decoration a creepy look and will save money on your energy bills. Try to cook some sweet dishes at home and if you don’t know the recipe go online and find some exiting recipes.
Hope these tips will help you to save few extra bucks on this year’s Halloween shopping. I wish all the readers a happy Halloween.
