Costumes! Pumpkins! Buckets of candy! Halloween can be a downright spooky holiday for families on a budget, but not if you have a few “tricks and treats” up your sleeve! According to the National Retail Federation, Americans are going to spend over $6.9 billion on Halloween this year!
But let me show you a little trick for saving money this Halloween, brought to you by my friends at Here Today, the St. Louis retailer who’s all about scaring up a good deal! They sent me on a Halloween shopping trip* to see what kind of ghoulishly good prices I could spot at their Fenton store. They have five stores around the metro area, so hop on your broomstick and fly on over.

The first thing in noticed at my local Here Today was a giant bin of pumpkins, ranging from $1.99 to $5.99. Now, I’m not going to suggest that you totally skip the pumpkin patch–after all, there’s no better place for fall photos! But, you can certainly supplement your pumpkin excursion with these cuties! Maybe a couple small ones for the kitchen counter? …

A few months ago, my mom introduced me to a new store that opened up in Fenton, Missouri. It was called Here Today and it was full of amazing merchandise at affordable prices. The reason it’s called Here Today? Because you never know if it will be there tomorrow when you come back! You can tell that the Here Today Stores have an incredible buying team because I wanted to come home with EVERYTHING – especially the fall decor you see as you walk in! Fall is my favorite season and we actually don’t have too many decorations for our house. My son has actually been begging to decorate the house for Halloween and I’ve been wanting to do it for Fall, so we headed to Here Today to see what we could find with only a $50 gift card to help us!
I instantly wanted to fill my cart up not only with all of the cute fall and Halloween options they had but also all of the decor they sell for the house. They have these cool retro phones and fans which remind me of something that JoJo from HGTV’s …

Recently a new discount store opened up just miles from my house in Arnold, Missouri! I was so excited when they contacted me to do a little shopping in their store, especially when it is October and there are so many adorable fall and Halloween items in their store. The name of the store is ‘Here Today‘, because a lot of their items may be in the store today, but could be gone tomorrow! That is why you want to stop in often, they are always updating and changing their merchandise. They also have several other locations in the St. Louis area, such as Fenton (Gravois Bluffs), Lake St. Louis, Florissant and even Fairview Heights, IL. They are planning to open another store in Shrewsberry soon.
Today I’ll be sharing my first shopping experience in the store, what I found, purchased and how those items look in my very own home. I will also be sharing a couple more shopping trips in the next two months and will even be having a giveaway for a gift card in December’s post… so, be sure to follow along!
