Before yesterday's gloom, I headed to Michael's and ended up splurging on the Spooky Town Box-of-Bones Coffin Factory. I don't usually buy animated displays but come on, it's a coffin factory run by skeletons! Plus, I had a 20% off the entire purchase coupon.
My spending season is already upon me. I try to hone in on a few big ticket items and then hope that some of the cool stuff lasts until after Halloween where I can catch some sales. Because I'm on sabbatical this upcoming semester, I'll be saving myself $500 monthly in commuting costs so it doesn't help that I can rationalize the extra spending. Just a little while ago, the first few boxes arrived, and nothing lifts one's spirits (as much as possible) as friends, in this case cute little inanimate objects.

Here are some of the not-so-pricey purchases.

Lastly, I actually didn't buy these two to go together. In fact, Pier 1 Imports includes each of them in different relationships (i.e. they each have different online pairs). I bought the Day of the Dead guy because he reminds me of one of The Gentleman from Buffy, and she reminded me of The Corpse Bride...but they look like a happy couple to me.
