Halloween is one of my family’s favorite holidays! We love the fun food, the fun costumes, trick-or-treating, the parties and all of the other spooktacular fun that happens this time of year. It's so much fun to get our scare on with lots of decorating, fun goodies and décor. However, being on a budget doesn't mean we have to limit our Halloween hoopla. With the help of Family Dollar and their new digital Smart Coupons, we can save even more on everything we need.
So what was on our shopping list before we headed out to our local Family Dollar store? Our must-have items this year were candy for trick-or-treaters, baking supplies for some terrifyingly terrific treats, some fun new Halloween decor, new trick-or-treat bags and some craft supplies to make some great no-carve pumpkins. We found everything on our Halloween shopping list we were looking for and more at our Family Dollar store. For these items and more, here are my tips for how to make the most of your Halloween shopping list and save big at Family Dollar.
Shop Early and Save
Waiting until the last minute can not only leave you with limited selection, but you can often miss out on great offers too! Watch for early savings on the Halloween costumes and decorations your family wants. Make sure you get everything you need while supplies are still in stock. Family Dollar has everyday low prices and they make it easy to save on everything we need for Halloween and more!
Can't find the perfect costume or Halloween decor that fits exactly what you're looking for this year? Why not make your own? During our recent visit to Family Dollar, we found a fantastic selection of Halloween make-up and craft supplies that gave us lots to work with without spending a lot of cash. Our favorite Halloween deals we found were awesome make up kits to create your own costume. They fit almost any idea and for any family member!
Reuse and Recycle
When buying Halloween décor items, think about different ways that they can be used. Don't be afraid to mix and match bargains from Family Dollar with your existing decorations to create fun new Halloween tablescapes, mantle decorations or front porch decor. Combine, mix and match your new buys with what you already have to create some scary good new combinations. They are sure to help your little ghouls and goblins shriek with glee!
Buy in Bulk
Passing out candy to trick-or-treaters this year? Who says you have to spend a lot? While smaller packages might have a cheaper price tag, it can actually often be cheaper to buy in bulk when you look at the price per piece. You can save even more when you also use new Smart Coupons at Family Dollar. These easy-to-use digital coupons load right onto your digital device for easy savings right at the register.
We headed to Family Dollar last weekend for our own Halloween shopping. There was so much fun stuff from costumes to glitter pumpkins to trick-or-treat bags. We had a blast checking out all of the fun stuff and picking out some new goodies to add to our stash at home. Thanks to Family Dollar's new digital Smart Coupons, we were also able to save quite a bit of money doing so too!
