So I don't get around to it every year, but I like to go out and shop for decorations on clearance the day after a big holiday to store and then use the next year.
For Halloween I hit up the drugstore Walgreens, which sounds strange but they have great deals on a nice selection of decorations. Here's what I got this morning:
Two metal pumpkin candle holders with little battery operated candles.
A plaster black cat statue.
A spider web lace covered pumpkin. The pumpkin itself is a funny shade of pale green. I think it might glow in the dark.
Two glass apothecary jars with Halloween labels.
A string of LED pumpkin lights that kind of match a set I already have. Now I can light up two windows next year!
A long string of "candle" lights to line te driveway.
A black glitter set of blocks that spell out spooky.
A pumpkin wreath for the front door.
A Halloween tree complete with dangling bats.
All this for under $40! I'm pretty pleased with my finds.
What do you think?
