Celebrate October & Halloween without spending a bunch of money!

October 4, 2020

I am absolutely in the camp of people who TURN ALL THE WAY up for the holidays. It’s probably because I’m an enneagram 7 and thrive with a theme. But I like to think a lot of it has to do with how God wired me. I want everything I share to be easy to recreate at home on any budget!

Movies are a fabulous way to set the spooky atmosphere. No need to buy anything new. There’s some amazing options on Disney+, Netflix, and Hulu. Not to mention Freeform does their 31 days of Halloween! Of course, Halloween movies are available at the library.

Here are some of my favorites:

– Halloweentown series

-Peanuts’ The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown


-The Night Before Christmas

– James & The Giant Peach


-The Addams Family

Aldi has some incredibly fun fall inspired snacks. I loved the Frankenstein cheese, but I thought the pumpkin flavored one would appeal to the whole family. Walmart always has cute snacks, like these ghost marshmallows. I just added them to my Walmart delivery order for the week. Of course, Trader Joe’s always the sweetest seasonal snacks. (None of this stuff costs very much but adds a special touch!)

Seasonal experiences:

Trips to the pumpkin patch, checking out local Halloween events, don’t overbook yourself and stay safe- but see if there’s some socially distant Halloween fun.


I love placing a bunch of holds at the library for seasonal books. It’s extra fun this year as we’ve added chapter books into our seasonal selections.

Here are some of my favorites:

– Nancy Drew

-Mercy Wilson Pig In Disguise

– There once was a Mummy

-Magic Treehouse A Good Night For Ghosts

– A Very Hairy Scary Story

– Nate the Great and the Halloween Hunt

-The Best Halloween Ever

PS- I just had to share this adorable Papa Murphy’s pumpkin pizza!
