How to Rock Halloween on a Budget

Halloween is less then a week away.

So, it's time to go into full-force planning mode (if you haven’t already).

That means buying the candy you're going to hand out (or planning the candy you want to buy for yourself, no judgement), putting up decorations, and, of course, picking a costume.

According to a recent press release, when it comes to costumes this year, more Canadians want to be original.

According to a recent survey from Value Village, 55 per cent of Canadians said they want to wear a costume that no one else will have.

One easy and more affordable way to achieve this is by thrifting your costume, either the whole thing or just buying pieces and making the costume yourself.

To get Halloween ready, Canadians will typically spend anywhere from $100 and $200, with over $50 spent on a costume.

As a result, most North Americans recognize the benefits of thrifting during the season.

More than 72 per cent said they will either thrift or use items they already own for their costumes.

Halloween is not long away, and 40 per cent of Canadians revealed that they spend one or two months deciding what to be and how to celebrate the holiday.

So, if you haven't started already, it's time to get spooky and get planning.
