It’s the most spooktacular time of the year. Halloween is right around the corner and for many, that means a party! But organising doesn’t come cheap. According to The Metro, the UK spends a whopping £320 million on Halloween annually.

Spending money on Halloween doesn’t have to be scary. With this in mind, PIWoP, low price shopping experts, reveals how you can organise a Halloween party on a budget.

Hold a costume competition.
If there's one way to keep the cost down and still have fun, it’s a costume competition! Halloween is all about dressing up and DIY costumes are a great way to cut the cost. You could even make or buy cheap prizes to give away to wearers of the best and worst costumes of the night.

Keep it simple.
There’s a tendency to overspend, especially when there’s a party to organise! But whilst many of us are quick to go wild on decorations, one way to save money is to just keep it simple. A simple colour scheme can work wonders for setting the mood. Choosing an orange and black decor can give your party the spooky feel it needs, without breaking the bank.

Use a price tracking tool.
Price tracking websites aren’t just amazing for your regular purchases. They’re also handy for party planning too! Whether it’s a creepy costume or pumpkin decoration kits, price tracking tools are great for tracking the price of the item you want, across a variety of well-known retailers.

Here at PIWoP, we provide a price tracker app that scours the web every six hours until your item reaches a lower price. Once it’s reached how much you want to pay, it sends an alert straight to you, so you can save wisely.
