Our team has had a book club since last year. It is a great way for everyone in my organization to get to know each other and talk about a particular book in relation to our job. During
Halloween will soon be here. Ghosts and goblins will appear, and to prepare for this fun day of fright, we have some interesting tips for you to save while still giving your family, friends and neighbors a great time.
As adults, we all remember the joys of going from house to house and receiving candy from our neighbors. It is especially rewarding when, at the end of the night, we pour out our candies from our Halloween buckets and see the mound of candies piling up. We indulge ourselves with all these delicious sweets, we learn how to trade them with our friends and we learn how to conserve them until the very end. These fun memories are something we cherish, and we would like to pass on to our children. Thus, we want to ensure that we buy lots of candies so that our youth can enjoy them. However, as much as we want to go all out, we also don’t want to break the bank by purchasing a ton of sweets and then worry about how much we spent, just to be given out in one day. So here are some tricks to save on buying candy.
Coupons: all that is needed is a pair of scissors and magazines, or newspapers. Your local supermarket can also supply you with coupons. One can also go online to see if there are special discounts or check on your shopper loyalty accounts for available digital coupons. These coupons can save a lot of money and give you a substantial amount of candies to hand out.
Buy in bulk: Yes, wholesale! Try purchasing your candies at a wholesale club, like Costco or Sam’s Club. It might seem a little costly; but in reality, you can actually get the best deals by doing this. You might even be surprised that you’d pay less than that at a grocery or discount chain.
Buy candy on the day of Halloween: Stores know they can jack up the prices of candy before Halloween, but come November, store owners don’t want to left with unwanted candy. So what they do is to sell them out on the day of the event. Walmart and City Market have great supplies of candy at Halloween. If you wait until the day of, you can probably get candy on sale.
Have you also considered purchasing some alternative items instead of candy. Traditionally, yes, candies are the items of choice to give out. But buying small little toys, or maybe party favors can save you a lot of money at a fraction of the cost. Most kids, expect candies, but they sure will smile if you give them a small toy or two. It can also be a good thing for them as, in a way, your saving their teeth.
All this candy talk has really got me excited. Feel free to click on those Amazon ads to get the best deals for your money, and honestly the best thing about Halloween is the fact that you can enjoy a day with your family and friends while wearing the wackiest and coolest costumes.
