Halloween clearance deals are frightfully good!

Posted November 4, 2011


Now is the time to get the best deals on Halloween clearance! Today, my local Walmart (40/42 area near Clayton) had their Halloween items marked down 75% off. There were still many costumes, make-up, decor, food items and more! What Halloween clearance deals have you found and which stores are already at 75% off?

It's a great time to buy costumes or accessories for next year. You can even fill up a gift box with costumes for a holiday gift for this year. When my girls were little, they loved to play in the costume box all year round. At 75% off, you can give a wonderful gift that promotes creativity at a very reasonable cost.

If you need more Halloween decorations for next year, buy now. Do not wait until they are full price again next October. For the last 8 years or so, I have been buying a couple items on clearance each year and now we have a number of Halloween decorations for inside and outside the house.

    You silly people and your seasonal creepiness. I can't be the ONLY one here who has a glow in the dark skull in their bathroom and a crystal ball in the parlor, can I?

    We took down last year's halloween decorations in July, mostly because the bloody handprints on the windows wouldn't go back on nicely after I took them down in anticipation of company.

    I'm holding out for 90%. There won't be much left, but that's about all I can justify spending this year. Besides, we have plenty already.

    It's also a good time to get decorations for your car for trunk or treat. :)

    We got a considerable amount of little man's Christmas presents last year during the Walmart Halloween 75% sale. He loves to dress up too!! I'll have to go check it out again this year. :)

    The Wal-Mart in Holly Springs has a LOT of Halloween items marked 75% off. I went this morning and found my daughter some costumes for dress-up play to give her for Christmas -- one that looks like Taylor Swift and one that looks like a 70's dress. She will love it! Thanks for the tip. :)
