Halloween on a budget
First published on October 25, 2019
While Halloween is all about the fun and games, we know our budgets can get a little frightening when all the costumes, decorations and fun activities start to add up.
To ensure you have the most spooktactular Halloween ever, our team has put together their best budget tips on how to prepare for the scariest night of the year.
- Go op shopping for costume pieces
Yes it’s true, sometimes it can be scary putting on clothes that give you flashbacks of your questionably trendier younger self. But you can really get creative when you go on a trip to the op shop – who knows what you might find? You’re guaranteed to have the most unique outfit around, and chances are it’ll cost less than a tenner!
- DIY your own decorations
Not only a way to save money but also the perfect opportunity to create an experience with your family and loved ones. We’re thinking woolen spider webs and some creepy silhouettes in windows. Just grab some material, scissors, a glue stick and get your spooky on!
- Find things around the house and check your wardrobe
You might find something lying around the house, that you most likely didn’t even know you had. Maybe it’s an old suite, never to be worn again dress or even an old table cloth. You’d be surprised to find what you already have just laying around.
- Plan in advance for Halloween
This one is probably a no-brainer, but anytime you’d like to save money, especially around busy times of the year, it may require a little bit more planning.
