Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love decorating and coming up with new scary ideas and costumes. Shopping for Halloween is hard because there are so many cool and creepy things to buy. Decorations for halloween are so expensive and don't really go on sale until its over. I get ready by going through magazines and websites and decided what I want to do first. When I get all my ideas together, I go through and figure out the things that I can make so that it will be cheaper. Most things are pretty simple and only take a few minutes. Plus it is also a fantastic way to get the kids involved and have some family time. That way you will have lasting decorations. There are many magazines and websites that you can go to to get your ideas. Some places like parents magazine tell you how to make the stuff. So just because you don't have a lot does not mean you can't have a great Halloween.
