According the National Retail Federation, on average, celebrants are expected to spend almost $80 on decorations, costumes and candy as total spending on the holiday is expected to reach $8 billion.

Here's what I've shelled out so far:

  • Costume & Accessories for ONE kid: $60
  • Costumes for two spoiled fur-children: $30
  • Decorations: $20
  • Visit to Pumpkin Patch: $50
  • Trick or Treat Candy (to hand out): $20
  • Trick or Treat Candy (to keep): $10


So how much will YOU spend this year??
