I have to laugh at myself, because I keep thinking I don’t have a specific Halloween style. I must be “all over the place” but this isn’t true. I really go for the cheap, cutesy stuff.
It’s my way of “rebelling” from the demands of society. In the professional world, I hate how everything has to be serious and organized. It’s so fucking boring. Everything has to be “a certain way” and “serious” and all drives me crazy. Why can’t things just be junky and chaotic?
So that’s why my Halloween is unorganized and excessive. I just like being free when I decorate to just throw things wherever without all of the stupid rules.
My love of the maximalist life is what often draws me to the Dollar Store. Ahhh the D.S., the place of affordability–where I can dump piles of stuff into my cart and leave knowing that I can still buy food. Halloween is where I really love to indulge, and the Dollar Store never fails to amuse me with the amount of cute they stock.
Here are a few goodies I’ve picked up this season. The best part is, if you see anything you like, you know it isn’t expensive or elusive.
I love the sparkle of this sign. The quality is really nice for something you only paid $1 for.
Wahhhhhh! Who can say no to this adorable scaredy-cat! I found this hidden under tons of garlands. I think if this cat had been more visible, there would have been none left.
The true reason why I found this cat so endearing…
A gorgeous bouquet with a creepy eye in the center. They offered them in black, purple or burgundy.
A sweet pointy witch hat.
These bone champagne glasses are really bright and shiny. Perfect for someone who likes bright, fun colors.
The total cost for these decorations pictured…$6.00!!
