Whether you’re carving pumpkins all night long, getting dressed up in a wicked outfit, or hosting a terrifyingly fun Halloween party, make sure that you get the most out of this spooky season, without having to break the bank. 

As with most types of seasonal decor, it’s best to get in early to save yourself some money. Typically, retailers start displaying their Halloween stock right after the summer holidays which finish in August. So, get in the habit of purchasing your Halloween essentials sooner rather than later to make some fa-boo-lous savings.

I’m Layla, the home and garden editor, and I started working at MyVoucherCodes in November 2022. I have always loved to write, especially after getting my degree in English Literature and Creative Writing, and since getting my own place, I’ve gotten stuck into all things home and garden.

When I’m not writing about saving money on homely purchases, I’m either sitting with my head in a new book, painting a piece of art for my walls, or binge-watching an interior design programme on Netflix. I love to get inspiration and transform my space, usually with the help of a few Pinterest boards and a couple of tins of paint.
