Halloween is Saturday and I’m not buying candy. It’s not that I am anti-Halloween. The decorations are up and a Halloween sign on my door. It’s just that there are very few kids who live in my building and no one has ever come to my door for candy even though I have participated the Halloween candy giveaway several times with the friendly ghost sign on my door like all the other participants.
So, I’m going to save the money that I would use for trick or treaters and just buy myself a caramel apple. I’ll come out ahead because I won’t waste money. In the past, all of the candy that I bought for trick or treaters was taken to work or church for people to eat, since I wasn’t going to eat all of the candy I bought. I even bought non-perishable items a couple of times and ended up giving those to my parents to give to the trick or treaters who come to their house.
Do you get any trick or treaters at your house? If you do then get some candy that you won’t mind getting stuck with if it’s left over. Don’t want to give out candy, then just go to a movie, turn off the lights or go to another part of the house so that trick or treaters won’t see that you are home and just to cheap to hand out candy and decide to egg your house.
