I'm Asking: What Are Your Savvy Halloween Tips?

I'm Asking: What Are Your Savvy Halloween Tips?

It seems there are a couple of key trends for Halloween this year — thanks to Twilight, True Blood, and TV's other vampy dramas, vampires are hot this season. But, another major trend just may be savvy Halloween spending. While Halloween last year seemed an ideal opportunity to escape economic woes, a year later — and a year wiser — more people are practicing smarter spending when it comes to celebrating Halloween traditions.

According to a recent survey, Halloween shoppers are planning to spend an average of $56.31, down $10 from last year. Even among 18-24 year-olds, who are typically Halloween's big partiers — and spenders — projected spending is down nearly $20.

Though Bloomberg reports that people are less likely to celebrate Halloween at all this year, remember that being budget-conscious doesn't mean that you have to quit the festivities all together. So, tell me, do you have any saving tricks for making this Halloween a more wallet-friendly treat?
