It’s time to start stocking up on candy for the annual parade of trick-or-treaters on October 31. Here are five ways you can conjure up savings, this Halloween!
Fun size vs full size. It doesn’t make sense to shell out extra money for the bigger candy bars. Instead, purchase a variety pack of the fun size candy bars – save money, and offer your trick-or-treaters an assortment!
Clip and save. To find savings on candy…just take out a pair of scissors and find the best coupons in your local paper. Be sure to check the Sunday paper for manufacturer’s coupons, as well as online for printable coupons!
Buy in bulk. If you live in a prime location, you might be expecting a lot of trick-or-treaters. In that case, you should consider buying candy in bulk at your local wholesale club. While it might seem like you’re spending more, it’s definitely less than what you’d pay for the same amount of candy at the grocery store or discount chain.
Trade in the candy, for popcorn. Who says you’re required to hand out candy? If you find a great deal on little trinkets or party favors, consider handing those out, instead. You should also consider purchasing inexpensive (but festive) Halloween bags…and loading them up with popcorn. Add a little sweetness with a dash of cinnamon and sugar!
Purchase your favorites. If you usually have leftover candy on Halloween, be sure to pick up your favorite kind. This way, the remaining candy won’t go to waste…and you’ll satisfy your Halloween sweet tooth!
