Raid the nearest grocery store/ pharmacy for candy. Chances are Halloween candy will already be on sale, so you can stock your candy stash for the year at a fraction of the typical price.
Go to the movies. In the dark of theater, costumes are a non-issue, so you don’t have to feel lame and old. Halloween makes a great excuse to splurge on the theater’s king-size candies (or the stuff you scored on sale) — everyone is housing candy today! (And you don’t even have to see something spooky.)
Take your little cousins trick-or-treating. You don’t have to dress up — just bring your phone and be the squad’s official photographer — and unofficial hero to your little cousins’ parents.
Stay home to feed trick-or-treaters. Staying in on Halloween may mean you’re old AF, but hunkering down can be a lazy in to the year’s most avant-garde fashion show. As long as you’re stocked up on candy and down with the doorbell ringing nonstop, you can enjoy all your tiny neighbors’ adorable costumes from the privacy and comfort of your own home. If the waiting game gets boring, you can always spend downtime-plotting ways to spook the next batch of kids.
Go shopping. When you don’t dress up, you save all the money you would have spent on a Halloween costume. To reward yourself, hit the mall to put your savings toward something you’ll actually wear more than once. Stores often stock sweets for trick-or-treaters, and if you happen to be disguising yourself as someone who can really afford to splurge, that candy is as good as yours!
Carve a pumpkin… It’s a festive project that gets better with age — now you can weld a knife without terrifying your parents! Even better: You’re now old enough to operate an oven, so you can make delicious roasted pumpkin seeds. (Just degunk the seeds and toss them with a couple tablespoons of olive oil a few pinches of salt. Then spread the seeds on a cookie sheet and roast at 375 degrees until they brown — usually about seven to 10 minutes.) They’ll help you redeem your diet once your Halloween candy sugar high wears off — they’ll do wonders in your yogurt, sprinkled over salad, or straight up.
