BONUS: Free Pumpkins at Wal-Mart

Now if you just can't bring yourself to spend the money on a pumpkin, and have young kids that don't even know what day Halloween is, you can go to Wal-Mart the day after Halloween. They will have pumpkins outside for you to take home for FREE. This way you can still celebrate carving a pumpkin with your kids at no price
