It’s that time of the year again,Autumn, which can only mean one thing…..Halloween. The days of spooky shenanigans, ghouls, witches and gore galore.In our household we love Halloween and all that comes with it including the trick or treating.
This year we were selected along with 9 other families to become Poundland Ambassadors, now I love a good bargain and Poundland provides me with plenty of them so when we were set our first Poundland Challenge to get into the spirit of Halloween and see what Halloween goodies we could pick up from our local store.
That weekend we headed on down to our local store in Lime Square, Manchester to see what Halloween delights they had to offer us. This isn’t one of their larger stores but I was pleasantly surprised at the large amount of Halloween stock available. The store is well organised into sections so was easy to navigate. We were planning on getting an ample amount of sweets for our trick or treat visitors and some fancy dress items but once faced with the whole isle of spooky items we knew that this year we would go the whole hog and throw our very own Halloween party, just for the little ones. So our mission in store was to find decorations, party plates and cups as well as treats, with such a large range it was difficult for us to narrow our selection down
It really wasn’t hard to get a little carried away, we ended up buying pretty much everything that we needed in that one little trip to Poundland and filling 3 baskets with goodies. The selection that they had to offer included full fancy dress costumes, wigs and accessories, lights, tableware,decorations, party apparel , lots of sweets and snacks. We had already purchased a Halloween costume so we had more to spend on our £20 challenge budget.
We purchased some great party plates and cups and items to make, decorate and display some spooky looking cupcakes. Lots of Halloween decorations including balloons and creepy cobwebs to make our rooms spooktacular and to finish off bowls and buckets for treats.
We had a great time picking and choosing from the selection available, it was harder to choose than we thought it would be. The staff in our local store were great and very helpful, if we couldn’t find anything then they were there on hand to help us and even look in the stock room for other colours of cobwebs.
If you’re looking for ways to save this Halloween, from cheap treats for those little trick or treaters to fabulously spooky party essentials, Poundland is the place to go.
