Halloween can be very expensive.  Especially if you have children!!

By the time you purchase Halloween Costumes, buy candy for the trick or treaters, prepare cool snacks for the class party and decorate your home you are likely to spend a pretty penny!  

I try to save money every way I can when it comes to holidays!  

Here are some ways to save money on Halloween!!

1.  Buy used Halloween Costumes since they’re usually only worn once or twice!  This is a GREAT way to save since some costumes, accessories, etc can be pricey! You can find used costumes for infants, children, adults and EVEN pets online!

2.  Sell old costumes and decorations you no longer use and that your family has outgrown.  Chances are SOMEONE out there will appreciate what you have to offer.  Holiday decorations always seem to be a big hit when I have a yard sale (which is another great way to raise a few extra dollars).

3.  Use coupons to save on candy for trick or treaters and ingredients for recipes.  Clip coupons from the newspaper, magazines and print coupons online.  Search weekly ads and matchups to maximize your savings.  

4.  Browse the internet. There are sooooo many websites that offer cheap, easy and cute holiday snack and craft ideas.

5.  Find your own UsedEverywhere.com site, a community built to connect, trade, buy, sell and share.  If you’re looking to give away an unwanted item or buy something you aren’t willing to pay full price for this is a great place to start!! Need help?  ASK, and you may receive!!  UsedEverywhere.com is a family-friendly network of local websites that provides the opportunity to buy, sell, trade and search in a safe environment. Helping to keep things out of landfills is a part of their mission, and their community coordinators work offline looking for people to help, organizations to support, businesses to connect with and events to attend. Helping the community is a big part of what they do!!  Using their site is simple and easy, and they have millions of users  –  will YOU be next?   Stay in touch and connect with UsedEverywhere.com on your favorite social media sites below to keep up to date with them!!
