It’s Thrifty Thursday, and if yesterday’s fall decorating blog post didn’t get you in the autumn spirit, hopefully today’s will. As mentioned yesterday, there are many ways you can decorate your home for fall. There are also many fall decorations and activities that cost little to no money—all you have to do is get thrifty!
- Pumpkins are a super cheap and easy way to get your home in the fall spirit. Carve pumpkins with your kids or check out some unique pumpkin ideas on our Pinterest board.
- Trzebiatowski’s Corn Maze in Bancroft is over 18 acres of a-MAZE-ing fun! View their Web site for pricing information (all prices between $5 and $10—what a deal!) and for hours of operation. They also host a haunted corn maze in October which is perfect for teenagers.
- Apples, apples, apples! Fall is the best time of year to enjoy Wisconsin apples. Visit an apple orchard to pick your own, then whip up some caramel apples or homemade apple sauce (check out this easy recipe that’s made in your slow cooker). Fresh apples also provide a great opportunity to make several batches of apple butter, which makes a great gift option.
- Candy corn is a tasty treat, but also makes great decorations. Fill clear glass vases with a few inches of candy corn, then place a candle in the vase for an easy and fun fall decoration. Do you have any other fall decorating ideas using candy corn or other candy?
Summer is usually a season of big spending, along with all the holidays in winter. Take fall as an opportunity to save some money for your end-of-the-year festivities.
