We used to get away with spending 20 bucks, but every year more and more kids have been coming and last year we spent almost $100 just on candy to pass out.
Halloween isn't big in New Zealand, and I live in a rather sleepy town. So we only spend $10NZD on candy. But there are halloween parties for children where i live with an entry fee of like $10 and it's a safe alternative to knocking on stranger's doors. It's aimed at kids aged 3-13 and it's like a family night where you dress up and there are games and free candy and a sausage sizzle etc. Halloween here is at the start of Summer so we do more outdoorsy stuff.
I agree, Costco is the way to go now a days...
Back in the day we didnt have a Costco to go to so we went to the nearest cvs store that had everything miniature...from lollies(like jolly ranchers) to m&m's to snickers there is no end.
If you dont limit yourself you can be spending hundreds of dollars on candy each year! Cant provide for the whole world...get what you can on your budget & just dont open the door anymore once you are done.
We get few trick or treaters so we usually get about $40 of full size candy and we always get mostly what we like since we always have a lot left over.
To be "stacked" for those treaters, buy as much as you can. My mom usually buys up to $40.00 of candy....we eat the rest that's left over.
nothing.. if anyone knocks on my door asking for sweets i tell them to stop scaving and for their dad to get a job
WOAHH my dad goes to costco and buys like 10-20 bucks of candy..
