Whether you're a trick-or-treater yourself or you're taking the kids out for an adventure, there are some essentials you should definitely bring! Who isn’t excited for Halloween?! Festive costumes, loads of candy, fun decorations, and, last but not least, trick-or-treating! Whether you’re a trick-or-treater yourself or you’re taking the kids out for an adventure, there are some essentials you should definitely bring to ensure everyone has a safe, comfortable, and fun time.

4 Items to Bring While Trick-or-Treating

1. A Snack and Water!

No one likes a grumpy trick-or-treater or parent! We do realize you’ll be collecting candy all night, but it might not be the healthiest or the most nutritious idea to snack on it all night long. Pack some fruit or veggies to keep up your  energy while you’re making your way through the neighborhoods. Keep some water handy for yourself and your children too. Dehydration can not only be dangerous, but it’ll definitely make you or your children uncomfortable and grumpy!

2. A Flashlight or Glowsticks!

Visibility on Halloween is key. There will be plenty of walking and crossing streets, so make sure no one is put in danger by drivers.  Increasing your own visibility is one way of keeping everyone safe. Carry a flashlight, glow sticks, or wear bright colors when trick-or-treating.  Furthermore, if you put a glowstick on your trick-or-treaters you can more easily identify them if you get stuck in a crowd of costumes.

3. First Aid Kit!

With all the excitement that Halloween brings there is sure to be some accidents or tripping throughout the night. Make sure your child’s scrapes or falls don’t end the night for everyone else. Bring a small first aid kit with you just in case an accident happens so you can make repairs while on the go!

4. Comfortable Shoes and Warm Clothing!

It’s right around this time of year that the temperatures drop and the weather changes. Since trick-or-treating happens in the evening and at night it would be a smart idea to wear warm clothing, or bring some extra along with you. In addition to warm clothes be sure to wear comfortable shoes. It is tempting to go all out for Halloween with outrageous costumes, but if you’re uncomfortable that’ll surely put a damper on the trick-or-treating fun. Make sure you’ll be warm enough and comfortable enough to trek around your town for candy!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
