Halloween on a Budget – Saving the Frights for the Night
It's no secret that the US loves Halloween but did you know that this night was actually first celebrated by the Celts, who used it to mark the end of the harvest and the start of a brand new year? This time of the year was believed to be the time in which the veil between the dead and the living thinned and allowed mortals to communicate with loved ones that had passed.
These days, Halloween is celebrated on masse by children and adults alike, making it one of the most popular holidays in the US. Nearly 70% of Americans will celebrate this year, having Halloween parties, going trick or treating, and dressing up! If you are planning something special, then let us help you achieve your goals without breaking the bank.
Budgeting Does Not Need to be Boring
Before you start planning Halloween, it is important to think about the budget. Many families have been left struggling since the pandemic hit, meaning that spending lots on Halloween could have a negative impact on other priority bills. However, we also understand that having something to look forward to is important, and so we've shared some of our top tips to help you party on a budget this year:
• Be honest about what you can afford
it's a natural feeling to want to create the biggest and best event for your loved ones, but starting out with a budget will help you to avoid getting into financial difficulties. Be honest about what you can afford, and then use this to plan your event.
• Focus on what you have available
rather than getting shopping blues by looking at what you can’t afford, switch your thinking and look at what you can afford and get excited about that instead. Make delicious treats in your kitchen and have fun collecting up household items that can be morphed into Halloween decorations.
• Get the kids involved
if your Halloween is all about your kids, then getting them involved in the planning will not only get them excited but will give you some creative minds that can support your low-cost mission.
• Hit some online shops
bargain hunting online is a great way to find tricks and treats that can fit in with your budget. Spend some time looking at what is available before parting with your cash so that you can be confident that you got the best deal.
• Challenge your kids to low-cost costumes
you don't need to spend a fortune on costumes and can instead work with your kids to come up with inventive ideas that won't break the bank. Ask them what they want to achieve and then get them looking at what they already have before tweaking it and making it more Halloween-friendly.
• Make your own decorations
rather than spending tons on buying Halloween decorations, why not make them yourself? Paper chains, pumpkin carving, skeletons, spiders, and more can all be easily made at home with very little expense needed.
• Remember it is only one day
it is easy to get caught up in all the Halloween excitement, but it is important to remember that it is just one day of the year and will pass as quickly as it came – make a commitment to spending less and then you can enjoy the rest of your year more!
Thinking of Hiring a Halloween Space – Buy a Custom Steel Building Instead!
Lots of us want to create a party space for Halloween and end up spending a fortune every year on hiring out a space. Rather than doing this every year, why not consider installing a metal building instead. Metal buildings are not just a great idea financially but come with a long list of benefits that you can look forward to, including having a space that can be easily used for other needs all year round, including a workshop, storage area, or even a large garage.
The other great thing about choosing a custom steel building is that metal building prices are seriously low and will cost very little in terms of ongoing maintenance or installation fees. Prefab steel buildings are delivered to you directly and either installed by a specialist crew or left for you to install with your friends and family.
Many people who own metal barn buildings have successfully created an additional business from them, too, helping them to make additional money that can then be used to fund your Halloween goals every year! Using their space as a home office, rental space, home business, retail space, or business storage to help them ramp up their income.
Ultimately, metal barn buildings will cost you more initially, but in the long run, they will save you significant amounts of money and mean that you can always be certain of space to celebrate Halloween without needing to find additional cash.
