For many, budgeting for the holidays is usually a focus on Thanksgiving and Christmas, Halloween expenses often get overlooked. But why is it so costly? If you’ve ever purchased candy, a costume or Halloween décor, you know that it can break the bank if you let it.
When my kids were little, birthday parties were a lot of fun. Invite family over, a few friends, maybe a couple of kids from daycare, and enjoy a nice afternoon together. But after age 6, birthday parties seem to be a competitive sport.
My family loves to shower my kids with presents but we already have two toy boxes filled to the brim. I want to make memories with my children and spend time doing fun, new and exciting things.
Overall, I’m perfectly content going without cable and wouldn’t go back to trying to fit that monthly subscription back into our budget.
