Want to decorate your home for fall, but need to do it on a budget?  Here are some ways you can save money on fall decorations.Will you be decorating your home for fall? There are many people who enjoy decorating their homes to match the changing of the seasons. Fall decorating can be done without having it become painfully expensive. Here are some ways to save money on fall decorations.

How to Save on Fall Decorations

Start at the Dollar Stores.
Many dollar stores will be carrying a mix of fall and Halloween decorations right now. You can find things at the dollar stores for lower prices than what the same item will cost at a craft store. If you want to get the very best deals, check out the floral department at the dollar stores.

Both dollar stores and craft stores will sell silk or plastic flowers in colors that match the season. For fall, there will also be colored leaves. Each place will have flowers in fall colors right now. Why pay extra for the same thing?

The dollar stores are also a good place to pick up fall colored tablecloths, napkins, votive candles, and cute candleholders. Stock up at the dollar store and you will spend less money than if you bought those things at the grocery store or craft stores.

Don’t carve the pumpkins!
Pumpkins make great decorations for fall. Buy your pumpkins from the grocery store where you have a loyalty card. Get it on your next grocery shopping trip, and you could end up saving some money on it. They are generally inexpensive, though, unless you select a bunch of really large and heavy pumpkins.

Avoid carving these pumpkins. If your plan is to have them last until Halloween, you shouldn’t carve them now. Pumpkins can last for a while (as decorations) if they have not been carved. Place the large pumpkins on your porch, or add some little pumpkins to an indoor table. If you must decorate them, consider painting an image onto them instead of carving them in September.

Use your coupons.
Craft stores will have some fall items on sale now. Their price won’t drop significantly until after it gets closer to Christmas. To get the best price, you should wait to purchase fall decorations until that sale starts. Use those items next year.

If you don’t want to wait, there is another way to save money. Before you leave home, take a minute to print out the coupons from the craft store’s website. Bring the coupons with you. They should help you save at least a few dollars.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
