Halloween is the unofficial beginning of the holiday season -- and that bring high stress and a frightfully low bank account. Because we care about you too much to let that happen, we’ve compiled a list of the best Halloween sales you can shop right now. From decorations to costumes to delicious candy, these are the deals that will keep you sane – at least until Thanksgiving.
Arguably the biggest Halloween store around, Spirit Halloween has the best deals out there. Single stores pop up in neighborhoods around the beginning of October and offer unbelievable deals on everything your Halloween celebration could dream of. If there isn’t one in your neighborhood (or you simply prefer online shopping because you can do it in your pajamas), Spirit Halloween online offers all the same steals and a bigger inventory.
For all your decoration needs, find your nearest Michaels. They have every type of decoration, from DIY projects to beautiful, professionally designed decor. The best part? Most Michaels stores have 50 percent off sales going on right now on all Halloween decorations. This Halloween Craft Pumpkin is a great DIY decoration that you can find for half off at any Michaels store. It’s a great family project to get everyone involved in, without the mess of a real pumpkin.
If you want your home to be extra-spooky for a fun Halloween party, head over to Party City for a great 50 percent off sale. You can get 50 percent off decorations to make your house look like the best haunted house on the block. They also offer up to 60 percent off costumes. It’s a one-stop shop for the best Halloween deals right now.
Build a Bear
Let’s face it, if you have a new baby, the last thing you want to do is drag her around the neighborhood gathering candy. This shouldn’t stop you from celebrating, though, and Build a Bear knows it. That’s why they’re offering Halloween-themed bears for as low as $15. Match a bear with your baby’s costume and have a simple celebration without the cold or the cavities.
If you’ve got children who are old enough to appreciate the mounds of sweets Halloween provides, we suggest heading over to Cheryl’s Cookies to take advantage of their Halloween sales. These Ghost Cookie Jar Cutout Cookies are on sale right now for $38. To add to the deals, Cheryl’s Cookies is offering free shipping on all orders. Give the cookies as gifts, or keep them for yourself. We won’t tell.
Babies 'R' Us
Not just for babies anymore. Babies 'R' Us offers the best sales for family costumes. Right now you can order themed costumes your whole family can use, with everything from pirates to Mario Bros. costumes. You can find costumes for only $10 with purchase of any other costume.
