It’s that time of year again! Halloween in right around the corner. You don’t have to stress or spend a lot of money to have a spooky Halloween Party! Buy wholesale Halloween decorations and order your costumes early to save money.
Here are few tips to for your Halloween Party:
Halloween Invitations: Send your invitations early and keep in mind that parents will most likely take their kids trick or treating. While sending party invitations through the mail is the traditional way to let people know about your Halloween party, consider sending an e-invite this year. People will receive a custom Halloween invitation right to their e-mail box. They can RSVP online and everyone can share the spooky details regarding the party, like what costume they’re going to wear or what dish they plan to bring.
Food & Drink: There are so many Halloween themed food and drink options! It’s going to be hard to decide what to make. Try renaming normal food to keep things simple. Chips and salsa can become bones chips and blood. Add a few eyeball’s to the salsa to keep people coming back for more! Add gummy worms to the punch and turn your cupcakes into spiders! Everything can have a Halloween twist.
Halloween Decorations: You don’t have to overspend on decorations. Set a budget and reuse some of last years decorations to keep your spending in check! Don’t forget about the spooky music to keep everyone in the Halloween spirit. Play games like find the missing head or get some toilet paper and see who can make the quickest mummy.
We love Halloween!
Here are few of our Hallow YouTube videos to get you in the spirit:

College students are a completely different breed of people when it comes to receiving gifts. One of the problems that parents have is understanding the transition their children go through from high school student to college student. The things that interested a child who is in high school may not hold the same appeal when that child reaches college. With a whole world of opportunity in front of them, college students start to appreciate gifts that their parents will often not understand.
1) Laundry Materials
That transition from high school to college becomes much more intense when the child decides to either go out of state for college or live in the college dorms for his first couple of years of school. The priorities of a child shift dramatically when they are suddenly faced with the responsibility of doing their own laundry.
College students will often turn doing laundry into a social event designed to either catch up with current friends or meet new people. As effective as doing the laundry can be for a college student’s social life, it is still not something that the college student wants to pay for. That is why gifts such as laundry detergent, laundry baskets, dryer sheets and quarters for the washers and dryers actually make very good college student gifts.
College students are always low on money and always appreciate the gift of money. You can give money as a gift in several different ways. You can give cash by itself, give a gift card for a specific department store or restaurant or you can give prepaid credit cards that will work in the on-campus bookstore or restaurant. Money, in any form, is always appreciated by college students.
Giving the gift of blankets is something that college students do not start to appreciate until the weather gets colder. But once the winter starts to arrive, your college student will call home every week complaining that someone has taken his best blanket. Parents who give new blankets are giving gifts that their college students will appreciate without even realizing it.
4) College Themed Gear
It can take a little while, but a college student will start to feel the loyalty to his school growing constantly. Gifts of t-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, sweatpants, jackets and hats with the college logo and name on it start to become gifts that are in demand. The longer the student is at the school, the stronger the desire for college themed gear will become.
5) Cellular Phone
If your college student does not already have a cellular phone, then giving one as a gift is a great idea. There are enough cellular phone plans out there that will allow you to get your college student a phone with unlimited talk time, texting and data access that you can easily afford it. It will help your college student to stay in touch with friends and also give you a reliable way to stay in touch with him as well.

There is a pretty good chance that if a house has a garage attached to it, then there is a workshop in that garage. The workshop is that mystical place where a man goes to fix an old chair or build his own bookcases. It is a place that winds up being the gathering point for generations of hand tools that seem to get handed down from father to son, but never used. It is a family museum as much as it is a place where he can get things done.
If you know a man that has a workshop in his garage, or anywhere else in his home, then there are some essential things he needs that he may not own. There are gifts you can buy for the man with a workshop that he would never admit to needing, but he will use constantly once he has them.
1) First Aid Kit
A man with a garage workshop will love his own first aid kit because it will allow him to treat his many wounds properly without having to walk through the house to the bathroom. He can hack and drill at his own flesh, intentionally or unintentionally, and have the means necessary to make his own repairs. The only difficult part will be convincing him that medical gauze is not necessarily the best way to re-attach a severed finger.
2) Workshop Vacuum
A workshop becomes a dusty and dirty place after a while. A man may leave it in that condition out of pride in the work he does, or just because he does not feel like cleaning his workshop with the house vacuum cleaner. To solve that problem, you can get him a workshop vacuum. No man feels emasculated while using a workshop vacuum, and it may even inspire him to keep his workshop cleaner and safer. A workshop vacuum is also good to have around for those times when his plumbing projects go wrong and you need to get water out of places it should not be.
3) Pegboard and Hooks
This is yet another workshop gift that a man would never admit he needs, but he will make good use of it when he gets it. A pegboard with a tool hanging hook kit will allow a man to organize his workshop and keep the tools he uses on a regular basis at arm’s length. It will allow him to be more productive and waste less time looking for his favorite hammer that he continually misplaces at various spots throughout the house.
4) Personalized Welcome Plaque
Men take pride in their workshops. One of the ways that you can help him to show off his workshop is to get him a plaque welcoming people to his domain. You would be shocked at how much Ted will appreciate a plaque that says “Ted’s Workshop” as it hangs over his workbench.
5) Small Refrigerator
This is just one of those gifts that he would never think of getting, but that he would love to have. A man with a refrigerator in his workshop is a man with an excuse to miss an evening with the in-laws.

Teenage boys are expensive. When they’re not eating you out of house and home, they’re karate-chopping holes in the drywall or putting BB gun dings in your car’s new paint job. One way to offset the expense of your favorite money pits is to buy and bulk. Stock up on these items now and you’ll give your wallet a break later.
Axe Body Spray
Boys go through two general phases. Before they like girls, they spend a lot of time out of the house rolling around in the mud, playing with the hose or whatever little boys do that keeps them smelling like wet dog. When they get a little older, they spend a lot of time outdoors hanging around the mall picking up girls. During either phase, a little cologne never hurts. Keep a supply around so they can spray it on themselves, in their gym bag and under their bed. At least from now on you’ll know what that smell is.
Non-Functioning Mock Security Camera
Every parent needs a break from their teenage boys at some point in time. But any parent who’s ever seen any teen movie knows that as soon as they announce their departure date, their kid is going to send out a flyer for a raging party. If you want to leave for a weekend without losing your peace of mind, install a few mock security cameras in the house the next time he’s at a sleep over. Now that he thinks you’re watching, he’ll be on his best behavior.
Handy Art Fabric Paint Kit
One of the natural steps in the evolution of the teenage boy is the crappy garage band. Even before he and his band mates master their instruments, they’re going to want to print t-shirts. When he hits you up for the deposit check for your local printers, hand him the Handy Art Fabric Paint Kit. Since you bought in bulk, he’ll have more than enough paint and materials to print enough shirts to sell to anyone who can make it through a whole set.
Simoniz Detailers Brushless Car Wash System
One of the best returns on your investment in teenagers is a little bit of free labor, am I right? If he’s old enough to start asking for a car, he’s old enough to start washing them. The Simoiniz Detailers Brushless Car Wash System has everything your teen needs to keep the family’s cars sparkling. If he balks at the idea of doing basic household chores, don’t make a fuss. Just hand him a bill for rent, his share of the utilities and all of the food he eats. He’ll be out there scrubbing before he has his next sandwich.
Clearasil Ultra Vanishing Rapid Action Treatment
Being a teenager is rough. Most of that can be blamed on hormones. In addition to moody behavior, puberty brings on pimples. To help him weather the storm, stock up on Clearasil. If he’s like most teens, he’ll need gallons of the stuff before it’s all said and done. Buy it in bulk and you’ll save hundreds of dollars and help your teen’s chances of scoring a date to the prom.

Half the fun of going to birthday parties when you’re a kid is getting party favors. Having your very own little bag stuffed full of goodies is almost as exciting as the party itself. Even in today’s technology-obsessed society, kids get enjoyment out of things like small toys and plastic jewelry. These and other inexpensive party favors can make your child’s next birthday event more fun and memorable for every kid that attends.
Bright, colorful glow sticks capture the attention of kids and adults alike. Available in large quantities and in a variety of colors, these versatile party favors are perfect for just about any event. Some sets come complete with pieces that let kids join more than one glow stick together, allowing for the creation of unique jewelry and glowing “sculptures.”
Old school but still a lot of fun, plastic maze puzzles keep kids entertained long after a party is over. Whether they’re able to navigate the tiny ball through the maze in a few minutes or spend several hours mulling over the best way to get to the finish, kids are intrigued by the basic challenge offered by these puzzles. And if you choose mazes with a cheerful smiley face background instead of a solid color, you’ll be giving kids something that’s as fun to look at as it is to play with.
Kids love to make music, so why not give away a few plastic kazoos at your next birthday party? Colorful, fun and inexpensive, kazoos let kids of all ages unleash their creative sides. Young children get a thrill out of being able to make music of any kind, and getting their very own kazoo lets them do just that.
It’s no secret that kids like things that make noise. They especially love making noise in groups, which is probably part of the reason why miniature klackers are still popular party favors. Consisting of two plastic balls mounted on a handle in such a way that they “klack” together when waved, these little toys can make a big sound. But if you’re going to include these in a party goodie bag, be forewarned: parents may not appreciate the noise.
Young children, especially young girls, love things that make them feel like they’re “grown up.” That’s why plastic jewelry makes such great party favors. Plastic rings with big colorful jewels are a truly classic giveaway item that kids can enjoy as part of playing dress-up and other make-believe games. Something as simple as a ring can spark a child’s imagination and give rise to hours of creative play both during and after a party.
Including these classic party favors in goodie bags at your child’s next party will give all the kids in attendance something fun to do once the festivities are over. Inexpensive and easy to find, these little toys and games provide a lot of fun without stretching your budget.

Springtime is gardening time, and all you need to make the most of it are a few staple items. From window boxes full of flowers to flourishing vegetable plots, creating the garden of your dreams is easy when you have the right tools.
1) Work Gloves
Digging in the dirt with bare hands is okay if you don’t mind having to scrub soil out from under your nails all the time. But when you’re working with fertilizers or using tools for long periods of time, it’s important to protect your hands with sturdy work gloves. Gloves keep your hands safe from potential chemical contact and help minimize sores and blisters.
2) Triangular Trowel
Whether you buy flats of plants at your local gardening shop or are putting in seeds that need depth to grow properly, a pointed trowel helps get them in. A triangular metal blade lets you cut into the dirt and dig out the right sized hole without hassle.
3) Hand Rake
A lightweight hand rake with metal prongs helps to lift matted leaves, eliminate stubborn weeds and even out the rows in your flower or vegetable plot. The small size allows you to target specific areas in ways a larger rake can’t.
4) Kneeling Pads
Gardening means a lot of time spent kneeling on hard ground, and that can take a toll on your knees and back. Colorful, portable kneeling pads offer comfort and relief no matter how long you’re planning on spending outdoors.
5) Self-Watering Planter Pots
Some plants need to be started indoors. Plastic self-watering planter pots are an inexpensive way to jump start your tomatoes, peppers and other vegetables with long growing seasons.
6) Window Boxes
For starting larger vegetable plants or creating decorative flower displays, window boxes are a good solution. Place them on the front porch or around the house and yard to brighten up the atmosphere.
7) Liquid Plant Food
If you love flowers, you want your favorites to be as big and healthy as possible. Give them a boost with concentrated plant food and watch them grow into a stunning yard display.
8) Organic Fertilizer
Sometimes your vegetables need a little help growing. If you’re wary of using chemicals to increase yields, try organic fertilizer for an environmentally friendly alternative that won’t put harsh ingredients into the soil.
9) Steel Plant Stakes
Tomatoes and other tall, heavy plants require staking to reach their full potential. With sturdy six-foot steel plant stakes, you can be sure that your plants will stay off the ground and have enough room to grow.
With these basic gardening items, you can get your flower and vegetable plots well on their way to reaching their full potential.

The Easter basket is an important tradition for many children. If you have lots of baskets to create, such as for all your nieces and nephews or for a class full of kids, you can save a considerable amount of money by buying the treats for the baskets wholesale. You can even buy the baskets wholesale.
1. Easter Stuffed Animals are an adorable addition to any basket and incredibly inexpensive when you purchase them in bulk. Choose from a chick, bunny or lamb. If you want, mix and match the stuffed animals or put one of each in each basket. You can also put realistic looking stuffed bunny in the baskets.
2. No Easter basket is complete without several Plastic Easter Eggs filled with sweet treats or other surprises. Get at least five eggs per basket. What you put in each egg is completely up to you. If you prefer, get the mini plastic eggs for a cute little basket. Give the basket a sports theme by filling it with sports themed eggs.
3. Bunny ears headbands add a touch of silliness to an Easter basket. The adorable white and pink ears rest on top of a comfortable, snap-on headband. They are a perfect addition to a set of baskets given to a class of kids.
4. Jelly Beans and other candies are a must for any basket. Use the jelly beans to fill the plastic Easter eggs or leave them in the package and give each child an entire bagful in their baskets.
5. Easter grass simply needs to go in the bottom of the basket. You may regret it and the parents of the children may not appreciate it, but the colorful strands of plastic are an essential tradition (a tradition that makes a big mess). You’ll get an assortment of cheerful pastel colors, so feel free to mix and match in the baskets.
6. Inexpensive and colorful Easter slide puzzles add a bit of fun. Kids will spend minutes or hours trying to solve each puzzle.
7. Add some more fun to each basket by tucking in an Easter paddle ball game. Buying multiple paddle ball games in bulk means you’ll pay less than $1 per each, even though the kids will get hours of fun out of them. The games come in an assortment of Easter themed prints. If you prefer, you can get inspirational paddle ball games for the baskets.
8. Get creative with the Easter bunny Hatchem Eggs Growing Pet. After opening the egg, a child places it in water and watches it grow. It’s a fun and slightly different Easter treat.
9. Add sparkle to the baskets with 2-tone Putty Eggs. The putty inside the plastic egg is both slimy and sparkling.
10. Don’t forget to finish the basket by Easter

When house guests are on their way, there’s always a last minute flurry of cleaning and preparing. Don’t forget to stock up on the necessary items to make your guests feel pampered and right at home. Whether the holidays are approaching, you’ve got a family reunion coming up, or the old college gang is in town and wants to crash at your place, make sure you have these 10 things on hand to keep your house running smoothly!
1. Tissues: Putting extra people in the house means more chance of spreading the current cold or flu. Having tissues ready and waiting means your guests will keep their germs where they belong, instead of passing them on to your furniture and you.
2. Snacks: People from different households tend to have different eating habits. To ensure that no one’s getting grumpy waiting for meal time, keep a few sure to please snacks around like granola bars these snacks are no muss, no fuss, and easy to pack along for a day trip.
3. Travel Toiletries: If you really want your guests to feel special, stock up the bathroom with a variety of individual size toiletries. It’s 4 star hotel treatment, and it keeps your personal toiletries off limits!
4. Batteries: It seems random, but more people means basic things like the remote control are going to be used more often. It never hurts to have a few extra batteries in your drawer so you don’t have to run out while your company’s around.
5. Paper towels: This one is a no-brainer. The easiest way to clean up spills and keep your home tidy is a roll of paper towels. For casual guests, you might even use them for serving up pizza instead of washing the extra plates!
6. Blankets: You never know how different people will prefer their climate. One guest is comfortable at 70 degrees while another is shivering on the couch. Having a few comfortable blankets draped on the sofa or rocking chair will help your guests feel at ease, so they don’t need to go looking.
7. Toilet paper: Does this really need explanation? Better to have some leftover after your guests leave than to run out mid-stay.
8. Towels: Some people can get away with one towel when they’re on the road. Others need a towel for their hair, one for their body, a washcloth, and a separate face towel. Don’t go in to take your shower and find out there are no towels left for you. Get a second set to spare for your guests.
9. Magazines: No, it’s not like the doctor’s waiting room, but it never hurts to have something available for your guests to entertain themselves. You might be cooking dinner or running a quick errand. Keep your guests out of trouble with something to read while you’re otherwise occupied.
10. Chocolate: It’s hard to argue with chocolate. You may want to put it out to share with your guests, or just keep it for yourself to de-stress once they’ve left!
