Saving Money on Halloween Candy

I usually wait until the day before or the day of Halloween to buy my Trick or Treat candy. My husband and I try to watch our diet since we are both a bit "fluffy". LOL! We love sweets so I always buy candy that we don't care for.

For example: I don't like peanuts and he doesn't like coconut, so I usually buy Snickers and Mounds minature bars. And since I wait until almost the last minute to buy them we usually eat only one or two bars - he eats the Snickers and I eat the Mounds.

That way we also get a "treat" but don't overdo it, the kids love their treats and everyone is happy. If there are any bars left over we bring them to work so that we won't eat them. I've been doing this for over ten years and it works for us.

I asked my husband last night, what is the best time to buy Halloween candy, and he said the day after Halloween. I had to laugh because that is "All Saints Day."

Stock up on after Halloween candy deals to use as ice cream topping or in cookies or just to have on hand for the "sweet tooth".
