Are you missing out? Here’s some fun and college-budget friendly tips to enjoy the season.

It wouldn’t be Halloween without Pillsbury pumpkin sugar cookies, am I right? For those who don’t want to bake or feel like a domesticated housewife, there’s no worries here. Simply preheat the oven, pull apart the cookie dough (and try not to eat it, but temptation is real) and bake for a few minutes. Voila!

If you really aren’t feeling baking and don’t want to burn down your house/ dorm/ apartment, you can always pick up a package of Oreo’s Halloween cookies. Nothing says Halloween goodness like delicious orange frosting.

Now, you will need something to drink with all of the fall treats. Apple cider is always a favorite, but if you are looking for something a little more grown up, try Angry Orchards. Even if you’re not a beer person, it’s delicious, like apple juice with a little kick.

Fall is gorgeous. Get outside! Go to a local farm and pick out some pumpkins. You can even go apple picking. If you aren’t feeling like frolicking in the woods, take a trip to your local Giant (or Wegman’s if you’re fancy) and select some red delicious or granny smith apples to make a pie. The entire kitchen will smell like heaven.

Have a bonfire! Get some friends together and some special apple cider and enjoy the night.

Watch some Halloween inspired movies. Get your popcorn, pumpkin cookies, cider, etc. together and look up Halloween movies on Netflix. If you are feeling brave, watch American Horror Story Murder House. Make sure you have blankets ready, I spent the whole time watching this with a pillow over my eyes, just saying.

You must watch Hocus Pocus. It’s the quintessential fall movie. It’s even better with a drinking game.

Decorate! Before you have everyone over to watch a movie, make your space a little spooky. Add some orange and purple lights, candles, pumpkins, even fake cobwebs and leaves. Get a mason jar or plastic with cauldron and fill up with your favorite candy. You might be too old to trick-or treat, but candy is a must. Your roommates will thank you. Enjoy the season!
