It feels like we've been hyping up Halloween forever, but the spookiest night of the year is actually next week (eek!). Maybe some of you already have your party decor, delicious Halloween recipes, and Trick-or-Treat candy ready to roll—but if you're anything like me, you still haven't picked out a costume, and you’re probably not prepared for the ghouls and goblins to be knocking at your door next week.

Enter Target: everyone's favorite retailer is actually giving us procrastinators an extra discount and free shipping for shopping Halloween must-haves this week. Spend $25 on Halloween decor (and costumes!) at Target.com and the retailer will give you $5 back on the spot—plus, if you order by Friday, October 26, they'll make sure your purchases will arrive at your door by October 30 for free!

Talk about sheer luck! I'll be adding these 15 party decorations and favors to my basket immediately. They're the best essentials to get in the spooky spirit and welcome Trick-or-Treaters. As for Halloween candy, I'll be heading to Whole Foods to pick up these 10 healthy brands, and I'll stop by ALDI to grab a few extra bags of popular candy on major discount for party favors.
