DealDash’s Fun Fall Essentials

Fall is definitely my favorite season, and there are certain things that are especially great in fall. Here are some fall essentials that you should be without!

There’s a crisp fall smell in the air, a combination of fireplace smoke, the last lawn mowing of the year, and apple cider donuts. I love fall! Living in New England I also get the special treat of seeing the beautiful autumn leaves change color, but the things on this fall essentials list can be enjoyed by most anyone. No, I’m not talking about yard waste bags and rakes! These are fun fall essentials.

  • Legging and hoodies. Leggings and hoodies are the perfect way to stretch out the use of your dresses, and hoodies are perfect over a t-shirt when you aren’t sure if the day is going to warm up later on. Leggings and hoodies are a great way to say hello to the autumn!
  • Pumpkin spice. I’m not ashamed, I love pumpkin spice everything, from muffins and coffee to candles and car air fresheners. If it’s pumpkin spice, it’s for me! Pumpkin spice coffee and lattes can really get you in a great mood for the cooler weather, and pumpkin spice candles can make your living room seem warm and inviting when you come in from the outdoors.
  • Fall decorations. There are so many great decorations that you can use in the fall, in October we have Halloween decorations, of course. And in November you can use harvest, leaves in baskets, Thanksgiving, and even put up your Christmas decorations Thanksgiving weekend! What better way to say Goodbye to fall than putting up the Christmas tree?
  • Apple picking. Apples are abundant at this time of year, and picking them is a fun activity for just about anyone.
  • Pies. Fall is the time to use those freshly picked apples and make pies. Fall pies aren’t just about apples, though. Pumpkin, blueberry, and strawberry rhubarb pies are wonderful fall treats as well.

I hope that you enjoyed my list of fun fall essentials. As the weather is getting cooler in the evening, it’s the perfect time to stay in and use DealDash to shop.

DealDash Has Fun in Fall

I love fall! It’s my favorite season. There are so many fun things to do in the fall.

Depending on where you live, fall might still be blisteringly hot like summer weather, or it might be starting to cool down a bit. The cooling down a bit is my favorite part, snuggling up under the blankets, getting the hoodies out of the closet, and drinking pumpkin flavored coffee are all extra bonuses to me. Living in New England we have a few foliage advantages over our Western and Southern neighbors, but “Leafing” isn’t the only thing to do in the wonderful months of September, October, and November.

Around my part of the USA, fall is the time for fairs! I can think of about 6 different fairs off of the top of my head that happen in September and October, from the large State Fair all the way down to the tiny county fairs. I love fairs, big and small. When I was younger I enjoyed the rides, but now that I am older I enjoy the fair food, walking around and people watching, seeing my kids enjoy the petting zoos, and going to the exhibits – It’s amazing, the winner of the “Biggest Pumpkin” contest seems to be bigger every year. When someone says “fall”, I think “fair.”

Another great think about fall is Halloween! I am personally not into super-scary movies or TV shows, but I do love a bit of Halloween fun, and dressing the kids up in costumes is always fun. Last year my husband even got into the spirit and let me dress him up for a Halloween/Birthday party as a bottle of Sriracha Sauce! I also love to see all of the little kids dressed up, it’s very funny to see what kids choose for their costumes sometimes. Of course, with Halloween comes candy, I am going to do my best this year to try and stay away from the chocolate!

Finally, to close out the praise for fall is my favorite holiday – Thanksgiving! I love all of the traditional Thanksgiving food, especially my special homemade mashed potatoes. My in-laws host a great Thanksgiving every year with all of the traditional Thanksgiving food, and some delicious extras such as pork buns, fried rice, and homemade spring rolls, yum yum!

As the nights get colder you will probably be spending more time indoors. The fall is a great time to hone your skills on DealDash. DealDash is open 24/7, 365 days a year. When you find yourself sitting at home drinking your apple cider or pumpkin spice lattes, head on over to DealDash and see how much you can save. Good luck and happy bidding!
