Buying Off Season: Three Bags of Candy for .25 each

One of the best ways to save money is to buy off season. This candy was marked down last week but I didn't buy any. I took my chances and waited to see if I could get some at rock bottom prices. Today I was at the store and BINGO! I got:

1 bag jelly pumpkins 1 lb. 2 oz for .25

1 bag peanut butter kisses 13 oz. for .25

1 bag 18 oz Autumn Mix for .25

They were just marking them down when I was there and I could have bought a whole lot more but it's not really a good idea to have that much candy laying around. :)

I buy most things off season this way, like decorations, wrapping paper etc. Autumn after autumn, Christmas after Christmas etc. The main thing is getting used to switching things around. After Halloween is probably the best candy buying time. The day after is probably best for chocolate etc. and you can save it in your freezer and take it out when you want some (sorry for not doing a blog on this earlier when the candy sales were really going on). This year, I didn't buy any but what you see above and it's 11/13, so you can get some later on but this will likely be the end of autumn candy sales.

  1. Great tip! After Christmas sales are when I try to stock up on things I will need for the next holiday season.
