More Halloween Cheapness!

Cheap eats!  Cheap things to do!  Now go put on a costume, dang it!


Chipotle: On Halloween, stop by any local Chipotle in costume, from 4 PM to close, and get a burrito, burrito bowl, salad, or order of tacos for just $2.  Then, take a picture of yourself in costume at the Chipotle and enter in their costume contest by November 2nd.  Check their Facebook page for details.

If that wasn’t enough Halloween happiness for you, Chipotle is also donating their sale proceeds on Halloween to The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, their “non-profit organization committed to creating a more sustainable and healthful food supply and to raising awareness concerning food issues.”


Outback Steakhouse: Receive one free children’s meal with the purchase of one adult meal on Halloween. Also, Outback is hiding a coupon for one free steak dinner to use on your next visit.  Check the beverage menu on your table to see if you won.


California Pizza Kitchen:  More free kids’ meals!  Bring costumed child to CPK and the little monster will eat for free.  The offer is good for one free CPK meal, and you’ve got to spend $10 to qualify.  So it’s not COMPLETELY free.  But you do save up to $6 per child.


Fast Food Deals:  Stop by Sonic for 50 cent Corn Dogs all day on Halloween.  Run through White Castle and get $3 off a crave case of any 30 sliders.  Purchase a Fresh Fit for Kids Meal at Subway and get a free Frankenweenie reusable trick-or-treat bag and glow stick.


Where to Trick Or Treat:

Log on to for their annual Trick Or Treat Index.  They rank the top 20 cities for trick-or-treating, calculated by using four equally weighted data variables: Zillow Home Value Index, population density, the Walk Score and local crime data from Relocation Essentials.

Minneapolis came in 11th place, and the top 5 neighborhoods are Fulton, Lynnhurst, Linden Hills, Tangletown, and Cedar/Isles/Dean.

Trick or Treat indoors at Rosedale Mall on Halloween from 5 to 7 PM.  You can also trick or treat at Maplewood Mall, from 5:30 to 7:30, and the Mall of America starting at 5:30.  The MOA even has an Allergy-Free Zone in the court outside of Sears


One More Free Event:  Swing by the MN Arboretum for their annual Ar-BOO-retum!  Admission is free all day for everyone who shows up in costume.  Trick or treat for apples at the Gift Store, snack on a Halloween cookie from the Restaurant, and enjoy the Pumpkin Palooza and scarecrow displays.

    I’ve done the cheap Chipotle burrito thing on Halloween. It is a good deal, but there is definitely a crowd!

    Where I Thrift

    Everyone has their favorite thrift stores, right?  Okay, you do if you love thrifting as much as I do!  Here are the stores where I enjoy popping tags:

    Saver’s in Bloomington – close proximity to Prestigious West Bloomington and Edina equals excellent, higher end thrift scores.  Remember, if you donate?  You receive a 20% off coupon you can use right away!

    Saver’s in Columbia Heights – it’s the nearest thrift store to my house, and they have the NICEST staff of any Saver’s in the TC, in my humble opinion.

    ARC Value Village – For me, ARC is hit or miss.  I either score BIG, or leave empty-handed.  Either way, I always enjoy perusing this tidy, friendly shop.
