How much are you spending on Halloween this year? Average American spends $66 with the top two items costumes and candy ($22). We will spend just about that much this year with most of it on costumes, candy and pumpkins (those are pretty expensive too..). So with that, what are your favorite things about Halloween? Mine – carving pumpkins and picking through the goodies in my kids bags to “borrow” some of the good candy like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!
