In previous years, people made sure to buy plenty of Halloween candy to hand out to trick-or-treaters. This year, celebrating Halloween in the regular way could be risky. Changes must be made to avoid spreading COVID-19. The unexpected result is that you can save money on Halloween candy this season.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) trick-or-treating is considered an unsafe activity this Halloween. This means you won’t need to buy as much Halloween candy as you may have purchased in previous years. It is fine to buy a little Halloween candy for your family to enjoy, and save money on it at the same time.

Avoid impulse buying. Things have been rough this year, and many people reach for sweets when they feel stressed. In many places, Halloween displays have already been put up in stores. This could influence you to buy Halloween candy that reminds you of better times. Again, a little bit is fine. Just be careful to stay within your budget.

People with large families can save money by purchasing a family-size bag of Halloween candy. You can get more candy for less money than if you bought several smaller bags of Halloween candy. This plan works best for families that all happen to enjoy the same kind of candy.

Take your time. Some candy companies started shipping Halloween candy to stores earlier this year than in past years. It appears they want to stretch out this candy-buying season. This means you can enjoy Halloween candy for longer this year, and make it fit within your budget.

Are your kids disappointed because they cannot go trick-or-treating this year? Parents can buy some Halloween candy for them to enjoy at home. It won’t cost much money to pick up a bag or two of 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.
