 Halloween is coming soon, and it is one opportunity for kids to get a major candy haul. However, with us being middle schoolers adults usually give us less candy because some adults believe that middle schoolers are too old to go trick-or-treating. However, there are many hacks that you can use to get more candy. Here are a few tips you can use:

  1. Be polite – This may seem repetitive, but it’s powerful because adults appreciate good manners. Just wear a big smile and say something like Happy Halloween. If you do this, then the adults will most likely give you more candy because you are polite.
  2. Make a map of the route that you want to take – Making a map will help you spend less time figuring out where to go next. Since you are spending less time figuring out where to go next; you will have more time, you will be able to go to more houses, therefore, getting more candy.
  3. Start early – If you start early then, the houses in your neighborhood will have more candy. Some people tend to run low on candy because they give generous amounts in the beginning. So, if you go early, then you can get those large handfuls of candy.
  4. This may be a little immoral but, go to the same house twice with a different costume on – If you are desperate, then you can go twice with something different each time. Go once in something simple, like a ghost, then go again to the same houses with something different. If you do this, then you can get double the amount of candy.  

        If you use these four effective methods while going trick-or-treating, then you can get much more candy during Halloween. Happy Halloween everyone; have fun trick-or-treating!
