Halloween is over, how much extra candy did you have left over? If your answer is none, then there’s good news. Stores across the nation will be putting their leftover candy on sale. They need to clear the aisles for the end of the year holiday sales. Many of the stores near you may have already replaced the orange and black with the red and green.
Now that you know there’s a sale, you need to have a plan. Getting the best pricing is a difficult challenge. Do you buy right after Halloween and get the best candy at a 30% discount. Or do you wait a week and risk getting “picked over” candy at even greater 75-90% off? I think my ideal solution would be to apply some kind of dollar cost averaging. I would pick up some of my favorite candy as early as today, even if it’s not at the biggest discount. Then I’d go out next week and see what else is left to supplement my candy “stash.”
I plan on firing up the my FoodSaver, so that we have candy for quite a few months. I’m personally looking forward to mixing Butterfinger, Kit Kat, and Reese Peanut Butter Cup together as an ice cream topper. Yum!
