I am trying to get shit together for Halloween writing articles for the blog but mostly trying to get stuff for my nephew’s birthday which is around Halloween. Therefore, everything is horror themed and since he is getting older the whole gift giving experience is getting easier because now all I have to do is give a gift card and some weird ass Halloween mask and the kid is happy as a pig in shit.
But with all the new movies that are being made via streaming services and in the movies Halloween related material hopefully should be easy to come by. Easier than cleaning out my storage area of all my Halloween shit. I could just put on some True Crime documentaries and call it a day, but I want people to leave my house and not be afraid to go out in the dark after this year’s Halloween party. Just got to see how my budget aligns up with stuff I am going to waste my money on. Having a ton of Halloween decorations makes it easier when I go into stores filled with Halloween stuff.
I have already been in Michaels at North riverside and spent more than 200 in there, the Walmart in the Orland park, il has some great stuff and I recommend go there than the location in Forest Park, IL which is just ghetto. Target is finally getting their shit out but the Target decorations are just lame as fuck. I bought my annual pumpkin LED light, but I was definitely not impressed with anything else they had to offer.
Needful Things which is on the edge of Oak Park, IL seems to have a great display and I will probably check them out. The only other viable Halloween places for decorations is online. Spirit always opens up in some empty storefront in September for the Halloween season, but they had stuff that is overpriced and is poorly made. Part of the problem with Halloween shopping is just that, there is a ton of stuff out there, but a lot of it, is overpriced, poorly made and not scary at all.
