Your Money: Save on Halloween

15 Oct

I interrupt my “Paradise Has a Price” series with an important segment about saving money on Halloween! Halloween is likely my favorite holiday, mostly because I get to dress up as someone else AND it doesn’t cost me that much. Americans seem to share my enthusiasm for Halloween, as overall spending has increased 55 percent since 2005, and the National Retail Federation expects consumers to spend over $7 billion on costumes, candy and decor this year. So, how best to keep those costs contained while still looking like you went all out? Check out my tips (and amazing DIY skills) on Good Day Colorado with the fabulous Brooke Wagner.

    I mean, calling these essentials is a bit of a stretch, but I do love having some fun decorations and a little party when Halloween comes by. Thanks for the saving tips.

      They’re certainly not life’s essentials, that’s for sure! To me, Halloween comes down to three things – costumes, candy and decor. But like I said, I’m a big fan of the event. Thanks for commenting, Mario!
