Hey gang! Heard an interesting statistic and had to share.

It was reported this morning that the average American spent $66 this year on Halloween, between costumes and candy. The average family spent over $100!

Our household spent $15 total: $5 on costumes for 2 little people, and another $10 in candy/gifts/craft supplies that we donated to Katie’s Kindergarten party. (We then hightailed it to my folks’ far-more-houses-per-acre neighborhood & trick or treated there!).

How did your Halloween compare to the national average? Any great money-saving tricks (or treats) you’d like to share that worked FABULOUSLY this year? Inquiring frugal minds want to know!
