NOVEMBER FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (November 4- 6, 2016)

what-do-you-mean-halloween-is-over

Well! Halloween has finally passed, and my husband made a great point! Why do we do so much for one night? To tell you the truth, I don’t really know.  Besides it being fun. My nephew’s birthday is on Halloween so we had a big family dinner and I took my kid’s to our street to do our trick or treating. I left a “TAKE ONE” note with a big bowl of Candy on my front porch. It was gone very fast. Something tells me one child had a lot of extra candy that night! Haha!

SAVINGS TIP: The day after Halloween, head straight to Walmart. Depending on your luck, you can score on amazing costumes and decorations for next year. I got two 4 ft licensed blow ups for $7 each,  a pop up coffin for $5, and 3 boxes of 24 mini chip bags, for $2.60 per box! Yesss! I am now ready for next year!
