Planning a 50 ft Party with Kmart this Halloween

Kmart logoEvery year as October gets closer and closer, I have to admit that I get a little excited about the pending arrival of Halloween.

I have nearly all positive memories of the holiday from when I was a child (there was only that one time where a group of friends and I ran into some "hoodlums" while out trick-or-treating) and I love that my daughters have such a good time putting on their costumes and getting into the spirit of things.

However, one aspect of Halloween that I've always felt that we were lacking in is decor. We carve pumpkins, we attend parties, we make pumpkin-shaped cookies... but the closest we come to decorations are usually the plastic Halloween window clings that may or may not happen to be dug out of the closet in time for the kids to stick them to the front door.

Not all that thrilling, right?

So this year we turned things up a notch and, after some browsing, did a little shopping thanks to 50 ft Party and

Halloween partyWhether you're looking for Halloween costumes, savings on candy, or tips and tricks for throwing a great Halloween party, 50 ft Party and Kmart have a lot to offer. They made it extremely easy to navigate the various categories to find just the right products that we wanted at an affordable price.

Here's how our shopping trip (and fun final selections) turned out...

But if a steal on candy isn't your thing (or even if it is), you'll want to be sure to check out the Monster Bash contest going on now on Kmart's Facebook page.

In celebration of their own 50 ft Party, they want a few lucky Kmart blue light specialpeople to be able to throw a monster of a party as well. Every week they are giving away a gift card (ends on 10/24) and each week the prize amount increases... right now the $500 gift card prize is just about ending, meaning this upcoming week will have a $750 gift card prize!

Next time we get together, I'd like to hear about the memories that weren't positive re: Halloween! Mmmkay?

I actually do shop Kmart a lot because it's less crowded than Walmart, plus I'm liking those supply prices you mentioned.

How's the laptop situation working out?
