HalloweeBay

Way back when we had to actually go to the store to shop for Halloween decorations, costumes, and other holiday paraphernalia – in many ways, that’s part of the fun, though, right?

Still, when I AM there in person, I generally want to buy (um…hoard) everything they have.  I suppose online that threat is potentially as dangerous – when all I have to do is click one, two, three, I still have to make sure I haven’t stocked up beyond what I need.  (Let’s be honest, chances are, with Halloween decor, I’ve already tipped the scale towards DON’T need.  But whatever!  For me, it isn’t about the party I’m having…I want this stuff for all year round!)

These days life is more hectic – everyone is “on” 24/7, and actually getting to the store might be tricky.  Even if you do, you may forget something while you’re there (that little part about “being on 24/7” has as much bearing on the brain – and memory! – as your physicality.  And your car’s.)

Yay for eBay for embracing the 31st so fully – I love that it isn’t only about “Christmas Shop”s anymore, but that the ghouls of the bunch (myself very much included) have equal opportunity. *insert pumpkin grinning here*  Thanks, online stores! I know it is more about making money for you but, oh, the convenience factor…and larger selection…for the rest of us! ❤  (I found myself giggling that I already own that full moon night light. 🙂 )

It’s only about three weeks away, Samhain, so if you haven’t gotten your act – costumes, preparations, cat toys! – together, you can reach out to the all might internet to get cracking quickly!

Halloween – ‘Tis The Season. . .!

To be crreeeeeppyyy….!

You have to love the fun packaging that comes out at this time of year (or if you don’t, I will on your behalf because I’m all for monsters and silliness.)

I definitely see it more with the unhealthy options, but whatever.  I mean…the baby spinach doesn’t have a witch on a broom on the package (though personally I think they should explore that marketing tack – what about kids thinking it’s cool!?)

I’ve not even heard of these (Herr’s!?) but I can safely say that this is EXACTLY the kind of thing I’d have gone “mooOooommm, can we get THESEEEeee!?  Wings and Webs!?!  TOTALLY made for creepy kids like I was.

As for the Oreos, Nabisco is always doing something rad.  I’d have been ALL over these. . .  They aren’t any different that regular Oreos as far as the taste, but thanks to the seasonal marketing, the orange center, and the jack o-lantern face…I’d eat them just because.  Way to go, Nabisco packaging people.

Then there are these… I don’t know if they’re even legit (though it appears that way.)  Dang.

It doesn’t stop with the packaging, though – there’s all sorts of fun, Halloween-ie, Autumnal flavors that crop up too, come September.  Take these Pumpkin Spice bars

Rockgirlmaxim84 on Instagram has a PLETHORA of holiday-inspired, limited edition finds (I think it’s absolutely fascinating how many she comes across, and / or tracks down!)  It’s like Caramel, Apple and Pumpkin Spice central…!

 

 

 

I’m so in my element once that 10th month rolls around…  I’m a Spring baby with and Autumnal heart, what can I say…
