Did Halloween come too soon this year for you? Some may be ready to ring in the ghoulish holiday, but others are rushing to get prepped for Halloween on Saturday night.
If you’re scrambling, don’t fret: You’re not alone. This video and last-minute prep list will help you get everything done just in time for the big night.
Before heading out to buy a costume, have a general theme ready. Consider saving some money with a DIY project. Value Village is a great place to mix and match items in order to compose a costume on the cheap. Quick tip: Consider bringing a photo along of your ideal costume to help you find what you’re looking for.
Share scary stories with the family
- Pick pumpkins for making pies, roasting seeds and carving scary or funny faces
- You’re never too old to wear a costume. Get the whole family involved this Halloween by joining in on the dressing-up fun
While candy and costumes are likely being discounted now, some shoppers may not be aware that home decor will also soon be on sale, ideal for last-minute decorators and dedicated deal hunters.
Dress up and dress bright. If you want to be scary and are wearing a darker costume, enhance it with reflectors, something that will make you visible to other ghosts and zombies and, most importantly, drivers on the road.
