Halloween Savings Tip

By Erik Folgate

Here’s a tip for next year when you’re thinking about buying a jack o’ lantern for Halloween decoration:

We procrastinted buying a pumpkin up until today, but we still wanted to get one because the trick-or-treaters need some kind of indication that we’re a Halloween friendly house. So, I went over to the local pumpkin patch at a church, and I found a decent pumpkin. The options are obviously slim when you buy on Halloween day. I went to give the lady the money for the pumpkin and she said it would be $6.00, and I could get two more for free! I went and picked out tinswo more to put in our front yard flower bed. Three huge pumpkins for $6.00 isn’t a bad deal at all.

    3 for $6 IS a good deal, but it seems that most people get rid of them on November 1st, so one night is probably not worth it. Plus, there won’t be much time to carve them either. I’d rather pay full price a few weeks prior and enjoy having them lit on the front steps each night through Halloween. Kind pricey, but since that’s our only decoration, it’s worth it.
