Post-Halloween Deals

20131107-134640.jpg

For the first time ever, I was able to catch the super-low after-Halloween sales this year.

Nope, I didn’t seek them out. I sort of stumbled on the 90-percent-off clearance section and couldn’t resist (especially since our Halloween decorations were slim this year).

Regardless, I’m pretty darn proud of myself. (Saving money + Prepping for next year = A total win!)

Check out all the Halloween things I got for just $4.76:

  • Plastic sword – $0.50
  • Spider Web Table Runner – $1.29
  • Jack-O-Lantern Window Clings – $0.20
  • Two “Venom” Tumblers – $0.17 each
  • One Skull Pilsner (matches another we have) – $0.19
  • Star Wars Pumpkin Carving Kit – $0.60
  • Set of six Halloween Wine Glass Charms – $0.50
  • One “Poison” Flask – $0.99

And, of course, using my Target debit card took another 5 percent off my purchase!

Did you catch any after-Halloween sales? If so, what sweet deals did you get?

Hey there, Halloween

Welp, today is the day.I’ve got may cat ears on and am ready for some Halloween fun.

f69bda1840f011e3bede22000aeb43a7_8Josh and I tried to set up a little get-together for tonight, but it will only be the two of us and one of his friends. (We’ll have a blast anyway.) The plan is to have pumpkin chili and s’more brownies while watching Halloween flicks. (Josh bought Rocky Horror for me a few nights ago, and we are both super excited to watch it.)

And, since this is the first Halloween I’ve spent at home in about three years (I usually travel to spend time with my mom because her birthday is so close to Halloween), I’m really hoping we get some trick-or-treaters at our door. Fingers crossed tonight’s rain doesn’t ruin trick-or-treating tonight.

I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll be doing a little crafting. (I’m hoping to make the spider candy basket.)

Last night, Josh and I had some pre-Halloween fun. We watched Paranorman (finally!) while eating some delicious, sweet popcorn with sprinkles.

And today, my workplace had some interesting activities too. There was a pumpkin-decorating contest (with some impressive entries), a costume contest, a pie-eating contest and a pumpkin-seed-spitting contest. I only stuck around for the first two. There was also a Chubby Bunny competition while votes for the costume contest were tallied. I wasn’t sure if I should be amused or disgusted (I think I felt a little of both).

Oh, and in case you were wondering, I am a cat again.

Happy Halloween!
