October always surprises me with how eventful of a month it is. The kids may have just settled back to school, and somehow before you know it Thanksgiving is around the corner! Maybe your older kids are coming back home for the holiday weekend, or you're attending a Thanksgiving play at your little one's school. And just like that, it's time to go costume shopping! If you are doing the rounds this spooky season or giving out candy, here are some top tips I have picked up along the way for trick or treating:

• Keep it bright: dark colours are harder to see at night. Dress your kids up in bright costumes or add reflective accessories so you can see them better. Glow sticks work great for this, and the kids will love them too!

• Go in groups: While it may be cool to dress up as a lone wolf, it's definitely not safe to go trick-or treating out as one. If your tiny humans are under 12, make sure an adult is around to supervise. If they're older, consider turning on a mobile tracker app so you can follow their progress from home.

Consider food allergies: Your favourite treat may be a peanut butter cup, but it may prove deadly for some little ones! You can choose to have two bowls - one with allergen treats and one without, or simply just carry only candy that is peanut-free and possibly dairy free! That way everyone can still have fun.

Crisp weather and pumpkin spice make fall a cozy time of the year, exactly the kind of atmosphere to encourage people shopping for a new home to imagine themselves curling up by the fireplace in a new abode. While real estate sales traditionally peak in the spring, did you know that fall is the second busiest season in the real estate market year? The spooky season offers you the perfect excuse to go house hunting while trick or treating, helping you get to know your neighbourhood better and possibly fall in love with your new dream home.
