Affordable Ways to Prepare for Halloween Night

October 29, 2018

Goblins, ghouls and witches – oh my! From costumes to candy, prepare for trick-or-treaters with a one-stop shop at Dollar General for all your Halloween needs. 

Halloween can be the perfect time of year to let out your creative side. Let your imagination soar when putting together a bold costume by selecting from a wide range of wigs, make-up and supplementing pre-made costumes. For those who prefer simplicity, consider accessorizing what you may already have in your wardrobe. Stick to monochromatic clothing options like black or white then add a mask or witches’ hat to get festive.

Discover your favorite candy brands like Hershey’s® and Nestle® at Dollar General. Stock up on a few bags to make sure all the neighborhood trick-or-treaters are able to get their fair share. Whether leaving out a bowl or individually passing them out, make sure that your candy bowl is festive for the spooky holiday. Find assorted serving bowl styles at your local Dollar General or online. Simplify your technique by passing out pre-organized candy bags. Add two to three miniature packaged candies to treat bags then use a twist tie or ribbon to secure.

Light your walkway with these twig decorations or Halloween solar stakes to provide a safe path while also decorating your yard. If heading out to knock on doors, consider keeping a flash light handy. Don’t forget the bucket!
