As you’ve probably guessed, Halloween and fall are my favorite times of the year. I love watching horror movies, playing with Halloween makeup, and watching the season change.
One thing I also love to do is pass out candy to trick-or-treaters. One of my favorite YouTubers, Grav3yard Girl, passes out massive amounts of candy each year. I love watching her do her candy and prizes haul and her “assembling the goodie bags” video each and every year.
But I’ve noticed that my neighborhood isn’t the best for trick-or-treating, which really stinks because I love to do it.
So, to help you save money and time, I want to give you some things to think about when you start planning your Halloween night.
1: ARE THERE A LOT OF CHILDREN IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD?
2: DO YOU ENJOY HANDING OUT CANDY?
This will free you up to relax or do something with your own family. Plus, kids can tell when you’re not really into it. It’s OK to take a year off.
3: DO YOU HAVE OTHER PLANS?
SO, WHAT ARE YOU DOING THIS YEAR?
It is as simple as that! I think a lot of us get weighed down by the societal convention of trick-or-treating and we decide to participate in something that either will cost us a ton of money for a ton of left overs, or will ultimately make our night less enjoyable.
Are you going to be handing out candy this year? Let me know in the comments!
