This halloween, don’t let finances frighten you—save that for the scary costumes and decorations!
There's no reason to break the bank to have fun. Some of the best things about halloween require very little spending. Whether you're hosting this year's Halloween party or you're just decorating your home, staying on budget is something you won’t regret.
Remember that the holiday is more about the people involved than the things you buy. A budget isn't going to spoil the fun of a pumpkin-carving party, a costumed get-together, or taking the kids trick-or-treating. In fact, since saving money feels great and reduces stress, a budget will help you enjoy the holiday more. So dust the cobwebs off your ledger—It’s time to start planning!
Discover The Joy Of A Budget-Friendly Halloween
Researched statistics show that across British Columbia, average families spend approximately $300 each on this holiday. This doesn’t mean you have to do the same thing, especially if you prioritize fun on a budget. Creativity is free, and the joy of holidays isn't in the spending. Center the day around laughing together and spinning spooky stories over a bonfire, rather than focusing on how many decorations you need to buy, or how many family-sized bags of candy you need to prepare for trick or treaters.
Take advantage of what you already have on hand, stick to a reasonable budget, and you'll see that everyone will still enjoy the holiday!
