Free Halloween Ecards or Bags of Candies

In the official Top 10 list most expensive holidays, Halloween should really be somewhere near the bottom. But one year for me, it was more like #1. I had just had my first child the week before and was feeling pretty depressed. Not only was I no longer getting comments on my lovely pregnancy glow, I wasn’t getting any sleep either. So the day before Halloween, my husband gave me a $100 bill to purchase some Halloween candy for the trick-or-treaters, in the hopes that it would cheer me up.

It was my first venture out of the house since my son was born, so I was feeling overwhelmed. But I was certain that purchasing Halloween candy was going to pull me out of my funk! Once I was in the store, I was in awe of all the choices, so I started piling up my cart with every candy I saw. The lady at the check out line said “Wow! Having a party?” and embarrassed, I lied and said “Yep! All the neighborhood kids are coming!”

When I got home and brought in all of the bags of candy, my husband was speechless. I had spent all $100. I then was brought to tears, as I discovered that Halloween candy purchases are final and can’t be returned. To make matters worse, we had less than 30 trick-or-treaters that year, and what looked like thousands of pieces of candy. In the end, I was not cheered up at all, but rather even more depressed due to my frivolous Halloween spending.

If only I had GotFreeCards.com back then, to pull me out of my funk, my Halloween would have been so much better. I would have been able to shop for ecards all day if I wanted to, and sent them to all of my friends, without spending a penny! I would have been able to enjoy funny and scary animated Halloween ecards at no expense to my now poor husband. THAT would have made my Halloween. So this year, yes I will buy a few cheap bags of candy for the trick-or-treaters. But to really get into the spirit of Halloween, I am going to send free ecards to all of my friends, and a special Halloween ecard to my husband
