I was going to post my next savings idea but decided to hold off on that one until next week. WHY you ask? Because Halloween is over and Christmas/Holiday season is coming up. So what does that have to do with anything? Well, SAVING for one thing. So are you confused yet? This post is about buying for next year at a deep discount!
I was in a few Halloween stores and couldn’t believe the price of the costumes there. $80, $120, $200 for a costume? Yea, right! I decided to go to Kmart instead. They had the same costume the Halloween store did but for 50% off and Halloween was still 6 days away.
My point is, whether it’s Halloween, Thanksgiving or the Christmas/Holiday season, you are better off buying next year’s supplies AFTER the holiday has past. Christmas trees, Halloween decorations, fake wreaths, lights or other fall items to dress up your house are just a few of these items you can save on greatly.
Here’s how to do it!
You may say, but the costume may be not up to date or current. Most costumes can be used year after year and never get old. For example, nurse, doctor, vampire, maid, police officer, cat and more.
Is it worth it?
Yes. You can save 50%-90% off the ridiculous prices they ask for before the holiday.
Oh, by the way, the costume I saved 50% off on was Ketchup and Mustard Bottle costumes.
So get going! Start saving! Look for my other saving tips to come.
