Halloween Coupons to Help Save You Money This October

This weekend I dumped an extraordinary amount of money on two Halloween costumes. The reason? Being unprepared.

Although I started searching online for various costumes the girls said they wanted – everything from a witch to Daphne on Scooby Doo – they were unable to make up their minds in time for me to place an order before leaving town this weekend for some pre-Halloween festivities.

We started off at a Halloween costume store that pops up in various locations each October. It was a fun adventure filled with screaming witch heads and spooky standing skeletons, but the biggest scream came when my daughter chose a $28 witch costume. Luckily we fled the building having made no purchases and found our way to Target and, eventually, Walmart. I still spent way more than I wanted, choking as I coughed up too much money on costumes that, I’m happy to report, they’ve worn already four times. (I don’t care if they rip: they were expensive. They will wear them until they fall to shreds!)

Next year, I promise to go into this holiday more prepared.
