Spooky Scarcity
October 2021

It’s October, and we all know that the changing of seasons calls for many pumpkin spice lattes, corn mazes, and bonfires. But, while adding up the costs of everything that goes into gatherings with friends and family, you may experience a different kind of spookiness if your savings have dwindled.

Here’s a tip: when planning which Halloween costume you’re going to wear this year, try looking through your closet for what you can repurpose. Or, if you’re craving a Starbucks PSL every morning, try making one from home! Don’t feel as though you need to give up any experiences because you’re trying to save money—before you do—try asking yourself if what you are spending that hard-earned cash on is worth the time it took to earn it in the first place.
