Halloween is on the way and Madison on the Cheap hopes to be able to tell you about lots of monstrously good deals.

Now that pumpkins are available, perhaps you should think about really doing some fancy carving this year. But before you buy stencils, take a look at the Better Homes & Gardens website, where the magazine is offering 36 printable pumpkin stencils for free. Among the stencils are more than a dozen that let you carve a pumpkin to resemble your favorite breed of dog. Choices include Chihuahuas, Beagles, Boxers, and Pugs.

We learned about this offer from Deb Stanley at Channel 7 News in Denver, and we’d like to share her insights about the offer:

“What’s the catch? You have to register for the Web site. The registration form comes up when you click on the stencil you want to print. Look carefully at all the checked and unchecked boxes, I didn’t want any of BHG’s newsletters, just the free stencils. Also, when the Web site offers you a free year of the magazine, read carefully. It’s actually offering you a free year, if you buy a year. I said no.”

The dog stencils are HERE. Stencils for more traditional themes, including bats, spiders, and witches, are HERE.
