I’m pretty picky about my Halloween haul. Partly because my personal Halloween collection is a little out of control these days, and partly because I already have all the decor I could possibly want for my apartment and party. (With plenty left over!)
But I cave every year and add a few more items to the collection over the course of the season. A lot of my goodies I procured during the 2015 season are in the archives over on my Instagram account. However, my friend Justine made a special request to see all my clearance haul when I commented on all the goodies she scored.
Justine, today’s post is for you! (And everyone else who loves drooling over Halloween goodies).
My favorite part of this post? I scored all these items for less than $25 TOTAL, and one item was originally $50 on its own. Clearance shopping makes my soul happy.
Here’s my 2015 Halloween clearance haul goodies:
Target goodies! I kept eyeing this trio of pumpkins, and when they were only $2.50 I couldn’t resist anymore. Plus, I can never have enough holiday hand towels!
These silly bracelets are EVERYWHERE in Houston, and they sell for just $1. When they were 50% off, I couldn’t help buying all three Halloween bracelets in coordinating colors.
Probably my silliest purchase, but I spied these one night at the grocery store more than a week after Halloween and thought, “I could make those whenever!” Looking forward to candy corn sugar cookies…in March!
I was a little disappointed when I went to Kohl’s and everything in their Halloween collection still seemed to be crazy expensive, even on clearance. I liked these bowls, but were they really worth $11? I ended up getting sucked in by a $10 off a $25 purchase, and then a lady in front of me gave me the last $3 of Kohl’s cash she had! I’m always looking for bowls to use at Halloweenie Roast for everyone’s tasty treats, so these were a fun AND functional buy!
More Kohl’s finds – my whole kitchen is a coffee theme and I am obsessed with all skulled things, so there was NO way I could pass these up!
And finally…my Halloween countdown calendar! I’ve been thinking about making myself of one these for a few years now, but when I spotted this one at Kohl’s I caved. Not only did it get me to my dollar mark for my coupon, but it was way, WAY less than it’s original $50 (EEK!) price tag. Now I just need to find a spot to hang it…
2016 Clearance Update
Updated Jan. 10, 2016
I spent the last week of 2015 on a little winter vacation in northern Wisconsin…and I was overjoyed when we happened across a boatload of Halloween clearance items at a local Kohl’s!
Just look at all those treasures! And me being, well, ME…I couldn’t pass up the chance to add a few more gems to my never-ending collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already had a sneak peek at my goodies. (Not following me? Let’s be friends!)
Here’s what I found for a grand total of $13:
I found these adorable placemats that were $1.91 a piece after an extra 20% off the clearance price. I couldn’t resist the cute design. I especially love the little treat jars in the bottom right corner.
Then I spotted the 2015 Halloween frame I had considered when I found it in November but ultimately left behind. Now I just need to find a decent photo from this year’s Halloweenie Roast to put in it!
THIS was the biggest score in my clearance shopping. I fell in love with this sign when I saw it back in November, but even the clearance price was a little pricey…and I talked myself out of it. But on super clearance? Still a touch more expensive that I thought Halloween items on clearance in January should have been, but I couldn’t leave it behind.
Plus, the drink glows in the dark!
Still Halloween clearance shopping in January – it’s like a second Christmas!
What was your favorite Halloween clearance purchase this year?
Only 328 days until Halloween 2016! I think I’m going to need a bigger countdown calendar…
