How to save on Halloween Candy
With Halloween just around the corner and the cost of costumes, candy, safety lights, decorations and everything else just adding up, I decided to find a way to save a little bit of money. I have found a few ways that you can save money on those holidays where lots of money is spent. This post will be mostly about Halloween since it's right around the corner.
Can you even imagine how much money is spent on candy this time of year? Last year I alone spent over $150 just on the candy for those kids that came to our house. Granted I lived in Italy and so we had a ton of people come that weren't American but it was still a great time had by all and I didn't mind sharing with the Italians since they don't normally do the "trick or treating" like we do. Anyways, after spending that much last year I have decided that this year I was only going to spend $30-$50 on candy. That was it! And so far it has worked!!!
Oriental Trading and I have become great friends in the past several years. I purchase from themevery 3 months or so and always am very satisfied with the stuff I receive. I normally only purchase the crafts but this year we got some of the candy and it all came in great condition, all individually wrapped, and didn't cost me nearly as much as it would have going to the grocery store to get them! Along with candy at Oriental Trading you can always get the small toys to give out instead of candy (always a great idea this day in age).
