Shopping on the day after a holiday has become one of my favorite pastimes. Why? Usually everything is discounted by 50%. There are usually things that are still good, despite the holiday themed color or decor. And, it’s a great way to get prepared for next year.
Candy. Halloween is a little different for us because, although I’m tempted to get out and buy a bag of M&Ms, we try to keep candy out of the house. And, since the kids are used to not having it around, it’s not difficult. BUT, if that’s not the case for you (and it didn’t use to be the case for me), this is a day to stock up on some candy.
Costumes. Costumes can be so pricey. Sometimes even making costumes doesn’t really save you much money (depending on what costume you are making). So, if you can guesstimate your child’s size and select a more classic costume (like a princess or superhero, etc), then you can save some serious money on next year’s costumes. That’s not to mention not having to worry about costumes on October 29 next year! 😉
Decorations. Decorations will be discounted today. This is a good time to assess what decorations you need or want to replace for next year. As with the costumes, it will save you money and the headache of trying to figure it out next October.
Other Halloween-Related Items. Halloween decorated muffin cups and party favors will also be on clearance. This is my favorite. Around our house we go from muffin to cookie phases in terms of what we like to have around as a snack. We are in a muffin phase. That means when I can get muffin cups/liners on sale, I get ’em! No one around here will care of the muffin liners are decorated with pumpkins!
What’s your favorite day-after-Halloween clearance item?
