Although we do not participate in the begging from door to door trick-or-treating (in the dark) for sweet treats, I do have the BEST way to cut your Halloween candy budget to practically zero!
Go to the store and pick up a couple of YOUR favorite candy bars. On your way home EAT your favorite candy bar. Do NOT throw the wrapper away (this wrapper will play a crucial role in your Halloween candy budget).
On Halloween night (before all the little beggers of sweet treats start coming by) put a small table out by your front door. Now get your largest bowl and place it onto the top of the small table. Okay, now this is the crucial part. Remember YOUR FAVORITE CANDY BAR wrapper you saved? Well… place the wrapper into the empty bowl. Now make a sign that reads:
“PLEASE TAKE ONLY ONE CANDY BAR EACH”
Place the sign next to the bowl with the used candy bar wrapper in it.
Now go out to dinner and enjoy your night. 🙂
