Americans will spend $9 billion on Halloween this year. Seven in 10 consumers plan to celebrate, and they’ll spend an average of nearly $90 per person.

If you’re looking for ways to get rid of too much Halloween candy, see “Leftover Halloween Candy: What to Do With It” for suggestions, such as dole it out or donate it to a food bank

Another idea is to donate it to a dentist participating in a Halloween Candy Buy Back program. It reduces the amount of candy kids will eat after Halloween to help prevent cavities. The candy is sent members of the U.S. military.

Happy Halloween. I hope you have a fantastic celebration.
