So it appears as if fans of McDonald’s Halloween pails can breathe a sigh of relief – there are six new buckets this year. In keeping with the male/female kids meal theme, there are three Angry Birds Star Wars Buckets and three Monster High buckets. That means there are also twice as many, with probably two being available each week.
So I’m not super excited, because I like them being pumpkin-ey. But I’m also 33 years old and still collecting kids meal toys.
Here’s a first look at the 2013 Halloween McDonald’s pails/buckets/toys:
And if you need a refresher, here’s McDonalds 2012′s Halloween Buckets, which were Scooby-Doo themed.
What do you think? Will you be making a trip or three to to the golden arches to collect the 2013 Halloween pails? Or are they a little too non-faithful to the original buckets (that by the way, the aging internet 80′s kids LOVE.)?
It’s September – the season of pumpkin EVERYTHING. I love it, and when I get that first taste of pumpkin spice creamer in my coffee, I’m ready to wait until December before moving on (to peppermint, of course).
We drink a LOT of coffee, and I wanted a more economical way to feed the habit, so I devised a recipe for my own delicious and SUPER CHEAP pumpkin spice coffee cream.
This recipe has gone through a few changes and will probably continue to evolve, but do try it, it’s cheap and it is so much more flavorful than the store bought. I’m not kidding, it’s really better. Oh and it’s easy!! Recipe will yield enough to almost fill two 16 oz. creamer bottles.
- 2½ cups water
- 1½ cups white sugar
- 2 cups non-dairy powder coffee creamer
- 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 8 tbsp. pureed pumpkin
- Add water to a medium pan and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to medium-low, and whisk in white sugar, stirring until it’s dissolved.
- Add non-dairy powder creamer and whisk till it’s dissolved.
- Add pumpkin pie spice, stirring.
- Add purred pumpkin, stirring.
- Let mixture sit over the medium-low heat for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat and pour into blender or food processor.
- Puree through your blender/processor for about 1 minute.
When your mixture has cooled a bit, pour into storage containers. I just save a few old creamer bottles and use those over and over.
Refrigerate and use as you would any store bought, seasonal pumpkin coffee creamer. It will cost you roughly about a third to a quarter of what you are paying for store-bought Coffee Mate and International Delight coffee creams, and if you truly love pumpkin spice, you will get spoiled on all the flavor in this creamer.
Enjoy pumpkin spice season!

This kind of thing excites me to no end! This year, General Mills is going to be releasing Frute Brute and Fruity Yummy Mummy, so for the first time in, well, EVER! Never has General Mills released all five breakfast cereals at once.
So yes, this year, you can get Frute Brute, Fruity Yummy Mummy, Franken Berry, Boo Berry, and Count Chocula.
All five General Mills Monster Cereals available 2013!
I know I’ll be getting all five boxes… yes, to EAT. I have an issue with collecting food, but I will most definitely be saving the boxes.
If you don’t blow your cereal buying budget on these five boxes, then for sure your leftover change will be burning a hole in your pocket when you see the five monster cereals in RETRO PACKAGING, sold exclusively at Target.
General Mills Retro Monster Cereal. I’m dying a little.
Oh. My. God. General Mills, you are freaking awesome.

You know I love it when the Halloween stuff starts streaming into my email, and I’m always interested to see what Dollar Tree can do for a dollar.
Here’s a few of the interesting, albeit early offerings that Dollar Tree is tempting us with for Halloween 2013.
Dollar Tree Potion Bottles
Dollar Tree suggests you can even make drinks and put them in here. I just think they’re cute for display. Comes with removable stopper – “Spooky Spider Cider”, “Lizards Legs”, and “Skin of Toad”.
LED Skulls come in black and silver
Now these are my speed! Glitter PLUS led??!! I know these won’t look all jeweled and prismatic in person, but I’m curious as to what they will look like… and like I said… GLITTER. 3½x4½” and come in black and gray.
Dollar Tree LED Glitter Pumpkins
And lastly, my favorite this year out of what I’ve seen so far… LED glittery pumpkins! Available in orange and black, with a COLOR CHANGING LED inside!! I know, I shouldn’t get this excited about LED’s, but I love that the technology has come so far so fast. Oh god, I sound like my husband and good friend, both of who will not be named here.
Here are some fresh, scratchy fonts for your print or digital Halloween horror designs this year. Fresh for 2013!

This one will be sure to creep the kiddies out… make a moving, color changing Rorschach mask. I guarantee you this one will have people doing a double take!
All you need is some stockings (you can get these anywhere) and thermochromic paint. The magic is in the paint on this one!
This mask provides a really eerie, breathing effect. Thinking of giving this one a try?
