Outfit post: Halloween shopping and how to be frugal

Over the weekend I did some shopping with my usual partner in crime (my niece, Lori). We both were a good influence on each other this time around when it came to spending money. We both have some upcoming expenses and we were both able to talk each other out of frugal purchases. For me, it was a challenge to refrain myself from buying all sorts of Halloween items. Turns out Homesense and Bath & Body Works have their items out already. This really is the most wonderful time of the year!

For the record, I do plan on going back in a couple of weeks once I am done paying for Philip's school fees/supplies as well as his upcoming birthday. Time flies, it seems like only yesterday I brought my baby bat home from the hospital and he is turning seven soon. 

This is what I got so far. I need more pumpkin/leave scented candles since I burn those year round!

Bath & Body Works Halloween


Special tip on being frugal - In order to help with my impulse shopping, I wore heels so I wouldn't walk/stand around too long! It worked because I spent under the budget I made for myself! You can't really tell that I am wearing heels in the pictures below but rest assured, I had them on!

Off topic, thank you for the Darkling tag. I think so far, three bloggers tagged me. I am getting to it. So many blog posts and videos to make, so little time!

  3. All these halloween hauls popping up are making me feel guilty I blew my entire budget on this year's early halloween fabric choices. They have been incredible this year, and with my luck... every thing outside of the sewing world is equally adorable, gah!
    I need more fall scented things in my life...

  5. Ok, that bat is just too cute!! I highly recommend the Cider Lane candle if you goo back to B&BW; it's definitely one of the best scents they've ever done. It's sooo yummy and smells like a real caramel apple. Happy shopping :)

  6. I envy you that you get to frollic in Halloween goodness every year :( We are getting more stuff over here, but no where near the amount of stuff you get on your side of the Atlantic.
