It’s the spookiest time of year! Autumn is finally here, and with it comes some awesome fun, free (or cheap) fall activities.
It’s easy to get suckered into paying way too much for some fall-time fun if you aren’t careful, though. To help, here is your guide to some fall activities for yourself, a date night, or the whole family.
Visit the Local Pumpkin Patch
45% of Americans plan to carve pumpkins this Halloween, and why not? Visiting your local pumpkin patch is a super fun and relatively low cost activity. The average price per pumpkin this year is $3.89.
Most pumpkin patches have plenty of free and fun games for the kiddos too. And who can resist the perfect Insta worthy photo op?
Make Your Own Movie Marathon
You may want to take the whole family to see a movie this spooky season, but with the average movie ticket costing $9.38 per person, that is some serious cash to shell out for just a couple hours!
Instead, throw your own movie marathon full of your favorite fall-time movies and snacks that don’t cost $10 per item.
Why do so many people hike and camp during the sweltering summer heat? Seriously, fall is THE best time for these outdoor activities. Not too hot, not too cold, and the changing leaves on the trees are gorgeous.
The best part? You can go on this little adventure for as little as $5 per person or even free, depending on the state park.
Be Smart with Halloween Costumes
Raise your hand if you’ve been personally victimized by Halloween stores and paid full price for a costume. Over $9.1 billion was spent on Halloween last year, and 64% of consumers that celebrate Halloween spend an average of $77 on their costume. Yikes!
DIY your own costume is the cheapest method, but if you aren’t craft savvy, don’t worry. Online shopping is the way to go with much lower priced costumes than in-store options.
Have a happy and safe Halloween, everyone! If you need more help figuring out how you can save your hard-earned cash or plan for the future, book your initial free consultation with Coremoney Coaching today.
