October, it means a lot of different things. The fall season, breast cancer awareness month, Canadian Thanksgiving and of course…HALLOWEEN!!
Halloween is one of our favorite holidays. We decorate, go get our pumpkin to carve, and of course dress up! However, when you have an entire family to dress up (including the dog) costumes can get expensive. And sure, I’m sure I could make homemade ones, but really, I’m not that crafty.
So, to purchase everyone a new costume every year, that money can rack up, and quickly. So I’m always the smart shopper as usual, and trying to find the best bang for my buck. We do visit the pop up Halloween shops, but the majority of my shopping for costumes is done online, or at least the planning for it.
The girls this year have each decided to be a Monster High doll for Halloween, my oldest will be Clawdean and my youngest Frankie Stien, but these costumes are not one of the cheaper ones, so I was sure to look for some Halloween Coupons online before we decided exactly where all their costumes would be purchased.
I’ve decided to be Flo from Progressive Insurance this year, and my hubby, we’ll he’s going with a tradition he started for himself, to go as a wrestler. Last year he was Hulk Hogan, and this year he’s going to be Rowdy Roddy Piper. Adult costumes can be a lot more to purchase than kids, we’re talking sometimes to the upwards of $70.00 or more. So before you run out and purchase, shop around! Look around, and I’m sure you could find some Halloween Express Coupons to help you out with your purchases.
What are you and your family deciding to dress up as this year? Have you found your costumes already? Do you dress up your pets too? This year we’re dressing our dog up as a Killer Whale (lol) he’s not too fond of the costume, but he keeps it on even though he gives us a look like we’re putting him through torture.
Be a smart shopper with me, get those Halloween costumes at a discounted price and have a fun, and safe Halloween this year! Use your savings to buy some of that ‘good candy’ for the kids!
