Frugal Tips for Halloween

I don’t know about you, but I feel like the whole fall/winter holidays drain my bank account. First Halloween, then Thanksgiving, followed by Christmas; they all happen quick!! Think about how much money we go through during this time; It’s exhausting. But I want my son to have the best memories, so I try not to feel guilty about it.

I can still have a good time AND feel good simply by being penny-pinching more. I put together a list of ways you can be frugal this Halloween season.

Halloween is one of those holidays where lots of opportunities arise to get creative and make unique crafts, decorations, and costumes. The best part is that you can do all of this on a budget! Halloween has no rules. Follow these 8 Frugal Tips to a Fun Halloween, and you’ll be sure to impress your friends and neighbors!

Here are some frugal tip for Halloween

  1. Create Your Costume: My goodness! I feel the costumes go up in cost every year. There is no way dressing up should be more than $50 per kid. It just doesn’t seem worth it to me. You can even find some costumes at thrift shops or Goodwill that cost WAY LESS!! So, if you want to DIY your look, there are so many fun ways to do so. Use what you have and go to the dollar store for some smaller accessories that you might you need. If you do not have the time to create a costume check out costume for less.
  2. Reuse Items: Each year we keep pieces for the next year. We saved all of our pumpkin carving kit parts and just washed them all out so we could use them again! We even kept the little tablecloth that we carved pumpkins on so that we didn’t have to buy a new one. Also, keeping your Halloween basket simple and fun is great. Kids don’t always like the same characters each year so just get the pumpkin buckets so they can reuse them without a fuss!
  3. DIY Halloween Decorations: You can get super cheap items to put together from the dollar store or even Amazon. You can find mason jars and add orange lights inside of them. BAM! It is THAT easy. You can have your children make some crafts and even use those! There are so many different crafts to do. Taking coffee filters and making them into spider webs is a great idea!! (enter sponsor links here)
  4. Watch Sales: I always love to get items AFTER the holiday when they receive a heavy discount. Be smart about this though because the total can add up. Only get what you REALLY know you will use and are a great sale!
  5. Make Candy Creations: I don’t mean literally create your candy because, well, no. What I mean is, buy some small items and make goodie bags from them. You get a better bang for your buck this way, and can fill them with treats that you know kids will love!
  6. Pumpkin Carving: Carving pumpkins is expensive. Do you know how much pumpkins cost these days? If you have more than one kid, you recognize the amount increases quickly. Try going to a pumpkin patch where it might cost you less, or allow kids to share and be creative with their pumpkins. Sometimes smaller pumpkins are EVEN better than the larger ones. If that doesn’t work, then try a different kind of craft other than a pumpkin carving!

We love being able to save money and still celebrate all the holidays! Do you have some ideas on how you make your Halloween frugal? Let us know in the comments below!

Top Eight Fall Bucket Ideas

I always say that I love summer. I love fall. The truth is I love all the seasons; they are all so fun and different. Fall is an excellent time of year, especially for kids! It can be so much fun if you make a list of things to do.

Here is a list of our top fall activities to do to help create some great memories:

  1. Take the time to witness the colors with the leaves and notice how different each one is.
  2. Have a photo-shoot among the falling leaves with beautiful colors.  Use these photos for holiday cards or pictures on your wall! Make sure to check out some fall clothing – kids fashion, ladies fashion.
  3. Rake a giant pile of leaves then jump in that pile of leaves. This was one of my favorite things to do as a kid! I loved this.
  4. Attend a football game! It can be a simple one for a local football or something for the NFL, you choose! Make sure to get a jersey to attend your game.
  5. Kick back on Sunday and watch football while eating chili and buffalo chicken, or pizza. YUM! Check out this recipe from our friends.
  6. Go on a hayride. You can choose between a horse and buggy or a truck-driven hayride. These hayrack rides are so much fun!  Make sure to dress warm!
  7. Attend a Fall Festival. There are so many always going on for all different towns so find one you can attend and have fun.
  8. Visit a pumpkin patch and pick pumpkins to take home, then carve them. Here are some pumpkin carving tools.

There are so many fun ideas for everyone to do in the fall and some are so obvious that I didn’t add them to the list. I am curious to know what are your favorite activities and what is on your list this fall?

The comfiest blankets like EVER! Featuring bizy belle

Recently we re did Antonios room a little bit. We painted his walls blue and re arranged furniture, soon we will be adding in there a toddler bed. But for now, momma can’t think about that. The blue walls grew on me, at first I didn’t like them, but now I don’t mind them. 

DSC_0957

I was so happy when I found Bizy Belle; we have been using the same blankets for antonio since he was born! So when I saw her blanket options I was super happy and couldn’t wait to use it.

More importantly, I was happy that I could find something that was super comfy and could match his room. We have blues, greys, and reds that we use for his theme in the room. Antonio defaintely loved and enjoyed this blanket!!

DSC_1138

The BizyBelle brand all started from a mother’s desire for quality, luxurious, and modern blankets. Each item is custom designed and handmade to fit the needs of the client. BizyBelle has grown into an international brand! You can find BizyBelle featured in many blogs and sold in boutiques all over the world!

It is so incredibly exciting to see BizyBelle designs being used as the focal point of nurseries and rooms. It is a great honor to know that BizyBelle blankets are given as gifts and are often the very first blanket that our smallest clients will ever snuggle into! The very foundation of BizyBelle is a mother’s love. Go get your shopping on!!
