This time of year is always kind of strange for me. I'm in the middle ground - I don't have kids yet, but I'm too old to be going out to some costume-themed bar with Jell-o shots (and so are you, probably). I love the idea of Halloween, though. When else do we walk around and talk to our neighbors, if only briefly? When else do our neighbors give us treats? This is my first Halloween at my new home, and I live on a pretty residential street, so I'm hoping we'll get a bunch of monsters and goblins and princesses and other really creative things! I mean, I really hope we get a bunch. Otherwise, I'm powerless around the fun-sized leftovers. I thought it would be fun to create a trick-or-treat for ourselves this time of year. Check out 7 money-saving tricks and treats below.
