Frugal Find: Halloween Candy (and costumes)

   Posted On: November 1, 2013  |    Posted In: Saving  |     Posted by: Broke Millennial®

Halloween CandyLadies and Gents, this doesn’t have to be a long one. It’s November 1 and that means FIRE SALE ON ALL HALLOWEEN ITEMS! Go stock up on your cobwebs, fake blood and skeletons for next year. Grab a discount costume, or makeup or spray-on hair dye. Best of all, CANDY! The glorious amounts of drastically marked down candy.
This tactic can also apply to Christmas decorations/wrapping paper, Valentine’s Day cards/candy and Easter trinkets. I’m pretty sure my Mom hasn’t paid full price for Christmas wrapping paper in years.

I’m going to stop talking about this and just going to go buy Halloween candy!

If I’m absent on Twitter later, please blame my sugar coma.

  1. Very nice! For me, the REAL gem is all the on-sale pumpkins. Think of all the pancakes, pie, soup, and warm drinks those can make!

    Actually, if I were really frugal, I’d just ask people for the pumpkins they carved and would just throw away anyway, but most people don’t wait until the last minute to buy them.

    Also, on the hunt for super-cheap Hulk hands starting today. Gonna be a good weekend 🙂

    1. Good luck with the hunt for Hulk hands. On-sale pumpkins would be a good find. Especially in NYC. Geez those prices are out of control aren’t they?

  2. I am so upset I have to wait until after work to go candy hunting at all the stores. I’m worried there will be none left! I always buy holiday themed candy after the holiday passes as well. I think I get a bit too excited over it. Hope you were able to get some good deals!

  3. Thank you for the mention. I’m also excited about the scores of free candy. Might actually be a good weekend to plan a movie night. I have all the concessions I could ever hope for. =)

    1. Depends on the kind! Smarties probably have a really long shelf-life, but I can personally attest to Hershey kisses expiring. Chocolate gets crumbly and gross.
