How to save on all aspects of Halloween

Flipp App savings expert Lauren Gruetman provides tips on how to save on all aspects of Halloween. Below you’ll find her tips as well as a few local Chicago deals available now!
Savings Tips:Plan ahead to save big bucks on costumes. There are so many DIY costumes that you can make using items from Dollar Tree. I recommend using the Flipp App to search through the Dollar Tree circular to see what items are in their stores. You can easily make unicorn wings from a feather boa and fairy wings (both are found in the craft section). Use a dish towel and cut it up into a vest to make a cowboy vest. Think creatively around the items you can find there for inexpensive costumes.Candy is cheapest two weeks before Halloween as stores start putting them on sale. And check your local drug stores flyers for deals on Sundays, which is when new deals are sometimes released. You can also look at bulk stores like Costco and Sams Club, but steer away from the chocolate candy. Buy big packages of Airheads and Skittles for a cheaper price per oz.

*It’s possible to throw an epic party for under $40! Stick to the dollar stores for decorations and buy items that can be used from year to year. The days following Halloween are the best times to purchase large blow up items and other Halloween decor.

Watch for Fall Harvests. I find the cheapest pumpkins by driving around and purchasing them at local homes that have them out for sale. You will save a LOT of money and get a larger pumpkin for buying local.
