Trunk or Treat October {Affordable Events}

Friday, November 1, 2013
I have an increasing number of questions for planning ideas and events for the budget savvy. I thought why not start a reoccurring feature of budget and bargain friendly parties, soirees, and more. Thus our Affordable Events series was born and now I showcase an event or activity every  month with prices, menus, vendors, and tips. Check out the October feature below!


Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and this year I participated in a trunk-or-treat. This is an outdoor trick or treat party where people decorate cars and hand out candy to kids! I went with a Sleepy Hollow theme and set up a mini dinner party in my trunk.  Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat…
