Candy is usually the number one items on anyone’s list for Halloween, adults and children alike. If you’re only getting candy though, you’re missing out!

As with most holidays companies are offering up freebies for children and adults, some places are also offering up discounts. Don’t forget, the day after Halloween is also a great day to stock up on decorations and costumes for next year. You can also get some great savings on candy, but we doubt that it will make it until next year. Here are a few ways to get more bang for your buck on all hallow’s eve.

  • $2 burrito at Chipotle. Anyone in costume can get a burrito, bowl, or salad at their local Chipotle between 4p.m. and closing for two bucks.

  1. The cost of living has increased each year. The price of consumer goods have increased yearly, sometimes, daily, i.e. groceries (milk, bread, poultry) gasoline, doctors visits, etc. I can recall in the early 90’s when I could add my groceries by estimating each item at 1.00 – 2.00. Now the average price of an item is $5.00. Believe me, I am not making 5x my salary. In fact, I am making 25,000.00 less this year than in 2009. I have suffered through 2 job losses, downsized 3x and I am still digging my way out. The only way that I can expect to have a savings is by coming up with a creative idea. “Working” for the average american company will not cut it in today’s world. Does anyone know what percentage of the US population pays taxes and works in the private sector, after deducting out the government employees, the retired folks, the unemployed, children 18 and under, the handicapped, the disabled/ill, those on welfare? It is my guess that 25% of the US population pays the majority of the taxes in this country. That is part of the issue and part of the solution.
