Halloween is just around the corner, which means parents are scrambling to find ways to entertain their little rascals in the most frugal way possible. To help families celebrate while saving money, Go Banking Rates shares six spirited activities that will keep kids occupied and savings accounts full.
In 2011, U.S. consumers spent an average of $21.05 on Halloween candy alone. And when it came to Halloween costumes, shoppers spent more than $2.5 billion last year.
With costs this high, there’s clearly a desperate need for cheap Halloween ideas for families on a budget. Go Banking Rates uncovered six alternatives to costly Halloween activities:
1. Make DIY Costumes
2. Create a Haunted House
3. Find Free Community Events
4. Participate in a “Candy-Pool”
5. Host a Fun Movie Night
6. Go Trick-or-Treating
Halloween does not have to break the bank with lost cash on costumes, decorations and candy. With a little planning and creativity, Halloween-lovers can show kids a frightastic Halloween night on a budget.
