Halloween is a very old holiday, dating back about 2,000 years.
The Halloween of modern times involves trick-or-treating, disguises, parties, candy and loads of fun. But this time of year can be as stressful as any other holiday. The cost of décor, candy, and costumes can begin to add up if you have a family of little ones and adults, both who like to dress up, party, and gorge on treats. Statistics show that Americans spent $9.1 billion dollars overall were spent on the 2017 Halloween holiday – $2.5 billion of which was spent on candy alone. Jack o’ lanterns, scarecrows, black cats, witches hats, haunted houses, costumes, etc. attributed to the remaining balance.

No truer words could have ever been spoken. This is the 21st Century, and one of the most influential inventions of modern times is the internet. Most of us can’t even picture what our lives would be like without it.
We’ve entered an age of “friending” people you don’t know, interacting with complete strangers, and sharing private information that just a few years ago we kept closely guarded. Google yourself, and you’ll find numerous websites containing your name, address, phone numbers, and lists of people associated with you – all just waiting to be purchased with a few, simple keystrokes.

It's that time of year again. A new school year for millions of kids all across the United States is just around the corner. The good news: the kids are no longer at home all day. Some parents love this. The bad news: kids will need supplies, and these days they need a lot more than crayons, pencils, and erasers. There are backpacks, folders and binders; electronics; pay-to-play fees; shoes and clothing – the list goes on. Depending on the size of your family, these items can easily set you back hundreds or thousands of dollars.
The long lists are daunting and can leave you wondering how on earth you will pay for all these essentials. Take a deep breath – you're not alone.
