Inexpensive Halloween & Fall Decorations

Although my five kiddos are getting a little too old for trick or treating, they still really enjoy decorating the house and the yard for the season so we always hit our local Dollar Tree first to pick up all our Halloween and Fall Decor needs. Everything is always just $1 so you certainly can’t beat the prices, but they’ve also got lots of great stuff to choose from like these scarecrows and fall signs. I love the “Home Sweet Home” sign for the flower bed beside our front door and the hanging “Harvest” sign would look great nestled inside a wreath on the front door. Some of my favorite finds that I always hit Dollar Tree first to pick up are seasonal place mats like the leaf shaped ones above and craft items so the kids can make some of their own decorations.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!  I think I got the trick and the kids got the treats (thank goodness I have my own chocolate stockpile)!  We’ve had costumes and a plan for Halloween for quite awhile, and then in the past couple of days the kids have all been changing their minds about what they want to be for Halloween.  One of my princesses decided she wanted to be a frog and my two little commandos wanted to be vampires – so I had to convince my daughter that only princes turn into frogs not princesses and then went to four different stores to get vampire teeth.  Luckily we got an extra set because at the last minute my cowboy decided he wanted to be a ‘vampire cowboy’ and then refused to wear his hat or chaps.  Oh well, they had a blast and they’ve got enough candy for fifteen cavities!

Summer Clearance BOGO Costume Sale – Save Big!

Every year (so far) for some reason I always seem to be scrambling at the last minute for Halloween costumes.  Not this year!  I’m feeling all organized and prepared right now (gotta revel in it cuz it won’t last long!) because I just bought all the costumes we’ll need for our four year old quads.  Our five six year old got leather chaps for his birthday last week to go along with cowboy boots and hat that he already had so he’s going to be a cowboy for Halloween.  My other two boys are getting this desert commando costume and the girls are getting these adorable fairy princess outfits in their favorite colors.  They’re having a HUGE sale right now at Buy Costumes where all clearance and blowout sale items are buy one get one free with promo code BOGOCLEAR.  This desert commando costume was on sale for only $19.99 and includes the helmet with face mask, goggles, jumpsuit, gloves and boot covers and both of the girls’ outfits were $14.99 each so I ended up paying a total of $39.97 including $4.99 shipping after using the promo code.  I’m super psyched that we’re getting such great costumes for less than ten bucks each AND that we’re already organized and ready for Halloween!
