I read a stat yesterday that said Americans will spend $185.50 on average this Halloween.
Not too scary if it’s going towards something cool like Halloween Index Funds or Debt Slaying Parties, but then I saw that $76.05 of it is going straight to candy – whaaaaaa? How many Kit Kats and sugar babies does a person need?? (And why do people keep giving out sugar babies anyways? Ain’t no kid ever wants those!)
Reminded me of a bunch of other things that are pretty scary too… Maybe you agree?
Things that are scarier than Halloween:
- Credit card debt
- Spending more than you make
- Day trading
- Not being yourself
- Losing your job
- Not saving 10% or more on your car insurance
Yup, I think that about sums it up…
What I miss? 😂
UPDATE: Looks like the 2022 spending average is now hovering around $100.45 – not too bad! I guess my post successfully terrified everyone ;) Now if only we can do this with inflation!!
