Mummies, vampires and zombies might be scary, but the staggering cost of Halloween might be the scariest thing of all!

Last week I asked whether Halloween costumes really needed to be such a big deal because I’m a budget conscious mom. Times are tough!

With the holidays right around the corner (T-minus eight weeks until Christmas), I’m scraping up every last nickel and dime, so when CashNetUSA: It’s Economic published the true cost of trick-or-treating infographic, I dove head first into the pile of receipts on my desk to see what I’ve spent so far.

Check out the staggering price of trick-or-treating and the total of what I’ve spent so far on Halloween – after the jump!

ZOMG I know, right? As promised, here’s a tally of what I’ve spent so far:

(2) pumpkins x $5/each (from a local farm)…..$10.00

(1) Iron Man costume……………………………$13.99 (on sale, y’all!)

(1) hooded phantom costume…………………..$19.99

(6) bags of candy x $8.88/each…………………$53.28

TOTAL $97.26

That’s a lot of money, Honey! I didn’t even buy goodies for my kids’ classrooms or decorate our house for Halloween and I still dropped a Benjamin!
