Happy Friday, ya’ll. It’s one week before Halloween! Are you ready for the big costumed sugar rush? If you’re one of the moms that hand-dips pretzels in melted green almond bark to create cool witch’s fingers (and my witch’s hats off to you, ladies, those things are seriously cool), you probably have your Halloween organized already. For those of us that are a little behind on the whole Halloween holiday, shopping from the couch on Amazon is definitely more appealing than battling the picked-over merchandise at a Halloween store or Target.
Plus, if your trips to Target are remotely like mine, shopping on the Internet is much cheaper because you’ll avoid the hordes of candy, toys and costumes in your little one’s face taunting them to enthusiastically say “MOMMY I WANT THAT!” which, (no judging) if you’re like me, will eventually result in caving for some random purchase by about the 10th request after repeating “we’ll think about that” and “we’ll think about that one, too, sugar.” This always happens, which is how we ended up with a 5th birthday candle after our trip to the grocery store last week. (His birthday is 4 months away.) I was successful, however, in diverting him from the cotton candy which he said, without me saying it first, “We’ll think about cotton candy, wight Mommy??” I’ve said “we’ll think about that” regarding cotton candy on so many grocery store trips that he now doesn’t ask. Success! Willpower.
So you could plan to visit Target or Wal-mart this weekend while you’re out and about, or you could opt to sit on the couch and take care of it all in 10 minutes and shop Amazon’s Halloween Shop.
Here are my picks:
The good candy
Shop | 25% off of Hershey’s candy
Get the good candy this year and be trick-or-treaters’ favorite house. And hide the extra for emergency sweet tooth situations.
Shop | Pumpkin Buckets
Who doesn’t love a standard pumpkin bucket? They’re timeless. You could also hand out candy in a non Halloween themed bowl and give your kids a trash bag for trick or treating. Kids just want the sugar loot.
Drink Up, Witches
Shop | Drink Up Witches Coozies
Have a beer with your neighbors before heading to the streets to beg for candy.
Easy costume for Mom
Unless you love the risqué version of Wonder Woman with a teeny mini skirt, this Wonderwoman t-shirt and headband makes for an easy to wear costume keeping you in Halloween style with minimal effort.
Happy Halloweening! I hope you’re doing something fun!
