Trick or Treat!

Maybe it's a little early to start thinking about Halloween, but I wanted to share some things I've come across recently...

These personalized trick or treat bags are only $10 over at Walmart, with $.97 shipping. (Each photo links directly to the product page.) These are my top three picks...I need to send this link over to the parents of the little ones in my life!

I ran into these Halloween piggy banks at Target. (By the way, did anyone see the cute patterned ones they had recently? I totally want one for a future baby (or okay, myself)...I would have already purchased one if I wasn't trying to stop being such a hoarder.)  You can currently see all of them here. I think the Superpig and the Skeleton are my favorites.

See the doctor one on the bottom? We should have bought this years (and years and years) ago to save for medical school!

Love this chalkboard one also - just write your savings goal on the side!

These next two items I found via Tatertots and Jello, a new-to-me treasure trove of awesome ideas.

I think this bottle display is such a great idea and could work for so many things: "baby" for a baby shower (and maybe ones with each guest's first initial for a favor?), "love" for Valentine's Day, etc. You could also always have the "candy" ones on hand and change out the colors based on the holiday.

Instructions found at Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM!

These etched glass jars could be used for different occasions as well. Start saving your empties!

Instructions found at Let Birds Fly

I don't do any seasonal decorating other than at Christmas, but I like the idea of incorporating small, inexpsensive touches like these last two.  Do you do anything in your home for different seasons and holidays?

I am going to be so tempted to buy the doctor piggy bank for Ty!
