It's a dirty little secret that kids have known about for years: 78% of parents admit to stealing from their kids' Halloween stash, and 28% even said they eat more candy than their kids!

Cashback website TopCashback.com surveyed a cross-section of 3,099 adults on various topics surrounding Halloween.

While buying enough candy for the little goblins is never cheap, nearly half of the parents surveyed (48%) said they wear the same costumes to save money, while 33% said they loved the costume too much to wear something else.


TopCashback.com also put together a list of ways you can save for Halloween:

  • Create your own costume
  • Host a costume swap
  • Re-use decorations
  • Shop for costumes and decorations when Halloween ends
  • Bundle coupons and cashback through TopCashback.com at stores like Party City, Target and Dollar Tree
