This year has really flown by and I’m baffled at how we’re already prepping to celebrate Halloween 2020. While I do love all the holidays, Halloween isn’t normally one that I go all out for. But there’s something about living through the pandemic that has me wanting to make sure I go big for everything. When my kids look back on this year, I don’t want them to feel sad but rather remember the memories we created and Halloween is no different.
So how are we celebrating this Halloween?
Going big—at home with Dollar General!
Brewing Up Fun For Halloween 2020
Did you know that Halloween 2020 falls on a Saturday? Yes! This means that the weekend can be filled with fun without having to think of school (or work) the next day. If you don’t plan on trick or treating, that’s ok—you aren’t alone. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t still get dressed up for the occasion.
We grabbed cute, easy, and cost-efficient Halloween costumes for the kids that were just $5 each from Dollar General. My favorite costumes are the ones that you don’t have to make a big fuss with but still make you feel festive. This year, we have an elephant, a cat and a wolf. Not to be forgotten, our newest member to the family also got a costume too—he’s a taco! BC was so tickled that he had a tail to match his best friend Logan that he couldn’t stop talking about it—it’s the simple things, amiright?
All Dressed Up With Something To Do
Whether you’re super crafty, love cooking, or enjoy a creepy movie and game night with your family, Dollar General has you covered. Because their products don’t cost an arm and a leg, you can really stock up to make sure that there are activities for every personality—including gift cards.
We’re big movie watchers and game players so I grabbed a gift card for Netflix so we could watch some of my favorite spooky movies like Casper and Hotel Transylvania 3 with the kids after playing a game. I chose Family Feud because we love to watch the show! Dollar General has even more great ideas for baking with candy, Halloween scavenger hunts and more. Check out their online Halloween headquarters for ideas.
The Kids Aren’t The Only Things Dressed Up!
Our living room is the place where so many of our memories are made so dressing it up in some Halloween decor is only appropriate! Dollar General has some really high-quality decoration pieces like the glass bottles and jars with different creepy descriptors for $7 each and the skull snow globe for $10—these are my favorites. Because we have a lot of shelving in our living room, the little wooden pieces were perfect–as was their prices for $5 each! And then some spider webbing that was just $1 just takes it to the next level! I was so excited that I found all this at Dollar General!
Having A Halloween Party? Dollar General Has Everything You Need
If your kids are anything like mine, they are begging you for a party. But parties can get a little on the expensive side when you factor in food, decor, candy, and activities. But Dollar General has you covered. I got all of our party decorations, food, drinks, and crafty activities to occupy the kids from my Dollar General. The best part? I got a nice discount using the coupons from my DG App. Make sure that you download the app so you can make your lists and get discounts too.
Not sure what to make? DollarGeneral.com can help with that too! They have different meal ideas that can be adapted for whatever it is you need. I love that they have so many choices for foods in their stores.
Halloween 2020 is right around the corner so don’t wait to get decorations and costumes from Dollar General!
How do you and your family plan to celebrate this year?
