I love Halloween. I mean, I really, really love Halloween.
Neither my husband or I were allowed to celebrate Halloween as children, so we are totally making up for it as adults!
We are big on our Halloween traditions - trick or treating, costumes, Halloween Horror Movie Night, a Halloween party for our adult friends, lots of decorating...
Each year, I find myself wanting to outdo the last year's Halloween costume and the last year's party. Halloween party supplies can be pretty expensive if you don't watch out for sales. So when I heard about the Halloween sale going on at Kmart as part of their 50 Foot Party celebration, I knew that I had to check it out quickly, because the sale is only Sept 18 - Sept 24! What exactly is the 50 Foot Party? Well, Kmart wants to help you throw the biggest Halloween party ever - say perhaps, a 50 foot party? So of course Kmart is giving us the tools we need to stock up on Halloween party supplies, Halloween candy, and Halloween costumes so that we can throw the biggest, best Halloween parties without spending a fortune!
I headed down to my local Kmart store, where admittedly, I have not shopped in some time. I didn't realize how many improvements they have made in recent years! My local Kmart was not the same Kmart it had been when I was a child, or even five years ago! It was nice and clean, it looked like it had been painted recently, and there were even self-checkout lines!
I headed straight back to the Halloween department, and I knew immediately that I would be buying all of my Halloween party supplies at Kmart! The children and teen Halloween costumes were on sale for 20% off - that sale is good through Sept 24th, so you better hurry in and grab one! I snapped a few photos for my daughter to look over, as we haven't bought her costume yet. While we do let her pick her own costume, we have the final say - it has to be age appropriate.
Each year, I struggle with what to spend the majority of my decorating budget on - the inside of my house, or the outside? Luckily, Kmart had a great sale on both type of Halloween decorations! The Halloween licensed porch greeters were $10 off! I thought this guy looked very spooky, and the M&M's character is so cute! I can imagine him sitting on my front porch!
Kmart has a fantastic sale on indoor Halloween decor as well - 25% off, through Sept 24th! I fell in love with these little ghosts! Aren't they just adorable? I think they would make great center pieces for my coffee tables, or even to put in my windowsills!
Kmart has 10 for $10 Beverages on sale until Sept 24th, even on Vitamin Water! This will make my family movie night so much easier! Everyone can just grab a bottle and relax, without having to worry about where to set their drink down so that it doesn't spill. Some other great deals right now are 2 for $6 Lay’s chips and 2 for $3 Little Debbie Fall Cakes! These will make my party prep for Halloween Horror Movie Night easy, because everyone loves Little Debbie and Lay's chips!
Oh, the candy...there was a lot of Halloween candy on sale at Kmart today. 2 for $5 Hershey’s candy, Buy two get one free Mars singles, 2 for $3 Snacks - it seemed that every kind of Halloween candy was on sale!
My favorite part of shopping at Kmart for my Halloween party supplies? The wonderful novelty items for my kitchen!
Those cute little plates and napkins are on sale too! The plates are $3.99 a pack and the napkins are $2.99 a pack. Those are going to be perfect for my Halloween movie night! And those Halloween window clings? I love them!
I think I'm ready to begin decorating the house for Halloween now - do I have to wait until October 1st? I suppose that in the meantime, I'll just get my Halloween fix by checking out Kmart's 50 Foot Party blog - it's full of party ideas, stories from others about their Halloween traditions and party ideas, and up to date information on Halloween deals!
While you are getting ready for Halloween, head over to the Monster Bash contest on Kmart’s Facebook page, where there's a prize each week - for a total of $5000 in prizes! This week's prize is a $250 Kmart gift card!
