best tips to save money

at the holidays


Look on buy-nothing Facebook groups to find free Halloween costumes for your kids

Don't go overboard buying the best, most expensive candy. You don't get a prize for giving out the best candy on Halloween.

Go to a pumpkin patch or a farm to buy pumpkins, apples, apple cider, and other fall foods.

Make a holiday budget so you know what you'll be spending for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas

Have a Thanksgiving potluck dinner. This saves money but also saves time in the kitchen. 

If you are shopping for Christmas gifts in person instead of online, use cash. This helps to stick to a budget.
