There are so many expenses that families face each day, from the everyday food and bills, to the clothes and seasonal expenses. One such seasonal expense is Halloween. I mean, with me, I find Halloween to be the kick off to the holiday season, and I love to go all out. By all out I mean, decorating both inside and out, carving pumpkins and dressing the entire family, including the dogs up in Halloween costumes. With everything, including the candy we purchase for our trick or treaters, as well as the goodies we provide for class parties, the expenses can really add up. So finding ways to save money on these expenses is a given for me. I am one who will wait to get the costumes until that optimal moment when there is a good sale going on, and for the decorations, I will use previous years’, but I will also look for some of those fun DIY crafts that can be found on Pinterest and also hit up the different stores both online and off, that have sales at certain times. Now when it comes to searching on Pinterest, I like to find items that I can use at home and even items that I can take to the school and take to the classes for the kids to have fun with. One such item that I recently came across on Pinterest, that is both easy to put together and fun, was a pumpkin bowling activity set. This is a set that I can easily make a few of, then take with me when we have the in class parties for the kids to play with.
Aside from scouring Pinterest for the treats and DIY crafts for Halloween, I also like to know of ways that I can save my family money. Like knowing that when I shop at places like Amazon.com, I can use my Cashback Bonus from Discover to pay for my purchases at checkout.
