On Which Halloween Candy Is The Most Expensive?

Here to preach the Aldi gospel. Last night I got 1 3.5lb bag of "mediocre" (twizzlers, other fruit things, and whoppers) for 14 cents/oz and 3 bags of fun size crunch, 3 musketeers, and butterfingers for 20 cents/oz.

@Tripleoxer Oops, read that as "is there actually a Mike Dang fan site?" Sometimes even if you don't ask, ye shall receive.

On The Cost of Halloween, Part 1: Costumes

I'm hosting a villains-themed party and going as Professor Umbridge. Got a hot pink blazer for $10 at a thrift store, using a dress and shoes that I already have. Not sure about hair accessories yet. Where the expenses will really hit is the party supplies - i.e. alcohol.

@Liz the Lemur Also the signature cotton tights by Foot Traffic are amazing. Stretchy and warm, not likely to run, not too heavy for early fall/late spring. Winter requires fleece-lined tights for me, which I've gotten at Nordstrom Rack before.
