The NRF (National Retail Federation) anticipates that Halloween to reach $8.5 billion and says that the average person will spend $66.54 on Halloween related items. So far I have spent that along on candy because I buy it, eat it and buy it again…it’s never ending cycle right up till Halloween night when I would rather have treats for Halloweeners than get a trick from them lol!!!! Thats my excuse……and I am sticking to it.
The NRF breaks the $66.54 down like this:
Costumes $23.37 (according to the NRF will take up the largest portion of a person’s budget)
$3.95 Greeting Cards
I wish those figures applied to my household, and I only have 1 school age child, and the costume along is $60.00. Halloween is one of most favorite times to celebrate, enjoy my set created with polyvore. HAPPY HALLOWEEN SEASON!
