More Ways to Save
Both real and faux pumpkins are wonderfully affordable, so you can use these fun and frugal fall decorations to transform your home for the season without a lot of money!
Want more ways to save? Here are a few tips:
- Buy real pumpkins at farmer’s markets for better pricing.
- Wait until the end of the season when farmer’s are trying to unload leftovers. You won’t have your pumpkins for the entire fall season, but they’ll be out for Halloween and Thanksgiving.
- Purchase faux pumpkins at the end of the season to use next year.
