October is a perfect time to enjoy the start of fall and Halloween. Before you start shopping for spooky decorations for your home, making fun snacks, or planning your costume, follow some of these tips to get the most bang for your buck.

Design your own Costume

After you’ve landed on a costume, start by looking in your closet to see what pieces of clothing you can use to make the costume work. If you find everything you are looking for, all you need are some accessories to complete the costume. You can find those accessories, by searching Thrift stores, Walmart, Amazon, Target, The Dollar Store, and Party City. And if making your costume is too timely, there are always options on Amazon and Walmart that cost up to $25.

Easy Spooky Snacks

Spooky snacks don’t have to break the bank. Find budget-friendly items at Walmart, Kroger, Meijer, and Aldi to put together festive treats. Check out these easy Halloween snack ideas to start your shopping list.
