Halloween this year is quickly approaching. For many people this is one of their favourite holidays of the year. People love to get dressed up out of the norm – show their creative side, silly side and perhaps perform some “tricks” to scare those around them. Don’t let your bank account trick you into draining it out!
I was in a store this weekend to buy my share treats for the neighbourhood kids and was surprised how fast I saw those numbers add up! It is possible to keep costs down during the Halloween season. Here’s how:
Buy a previously used costume or the same one as last year. If you really want to be something different, hold out until after Halloween to buy your costume and put it away for next year.
This next one takes major willpower. Buy your treats on November 1st and put it away for the year. If you are anything like me (I love my candy and chocolate) – put it in a safe with someone else’s code with a hidden key with a troll guarding it – do whatever you need to but that big savings will help next year.
Open one box (or bag) at a time. Don’t open all of your chocolate in case you don’t have a lot of kids at your door (especially if it’s calling for rain) Anything you don’t use – take it and your receipt back to the store and return it! You’ll get your money back!
Lastly you can turn the lights off, close the curtains and don’t shell out at all. Sure some of the little neighbourhood ghouls and goblins won’t be happy…but your bank account will be.
