My birthday is on Halloween, so every year I get super excited. I plan what my costume will be, decide how I want to celebrate and text all my friends to let them know.
Last year, I was finally able to host a Halloween and birthday party at my house. I was so excited. I haven’t had a party at my house since I was in high school, and I wanted to make it a big blowout.
But once I got to the party supply store, I was shocked. Everything was so expensive, including the cheap plastic decorations.
It was too close to party time to find a cheaper option, but I learned a lot from that experience. Here’s how I save on Halloween now and what I learned from last year.
Look for Party Supplies and Decor at Thrift Stores
Thrift stores are one of the best places to get party supplies on a budget. You can find cheap punch bowls, mismatched glasses tablecloths and random pieces of decor.
