Take all of my money!

Earlier this week when we were talking about seasonal Halloween stores taking advantage of some prime empty Treasure Valley real estate, I dropped the knowledge on you that the spooky holiday is now a $9.1 BILLLION industry in the United States. With retailers raking in that much cash, you know people are spending money on things other than costumes and candy to pass out at trunk-or-treats!

Those retailers target people like me who like to be a little extra when it comes to any holiday.  Does that sound like you? Then pass this article on to your friends and family and let's make the new "Ugly Halloween Sweaters" trend a thing in the Treasure Valley! These sweaters are going viral and replace the snowflakes, trees and poinsettias you're used to seeing on obnoxious Christmas sweaters with things like pumpkins, skeletons and bats.

They're actually pretty adorable and I fully expect my husband to roll his eyes when I tell him that I'm ordering a couple to rotate throughout the month of October! And hey, if you're a parent that wants to look festive at your child's Halloween parade, this is one way to do it without having to put on a full costume.

Check out some of the options out there and let me know if you're joining in on this new trend with me!
