Spook Spotter: Dollar Finds: Halloween Treat Bags

The following does not constitute an endorsement of any product or retailer.   It is for information purposes only.

A stop at a dollar store like The Dollar Tree can bring with it a lot of surprises, especially at this time of year.  From foam tombstones to bags of fingers, the Dollar Tree has some interesting fare that can be used to haunt your home.  Among other goodies, this year, they are carrying an assortment of Halloween sandwich bags.  These bags are usually produced by the big names in the ”baggie” industry and can be hard to track down at the big box stores, which is why it was surprising to find these alternatives at the Dollar Tree.  This year, the discounter is offering a box of 25 Halloween Sandwich Bags for a dollar.  There are two designs: a Halloween Collage and a Jack-O’-Lantern print.  If you can’t find these or would rather wait for the name-brand releases, they can generally be tracked down near the end of September in places like Target.

These baggies are great for daily use, for your kids’ lunch — or your own!  However, they also would work wonderfully for the Halloween night Treaters.  You can fill them with miniature candies, little toys or both!  The zip-up feature makes it so you don’t have to worry about treats falling out and the designs add that extra bit of flare that makes your treat memorable.  The opportunities for using these baggies are endless.  Share some of your ideas in the comments section below!
