Stocking Up on Halloween Candy and Other "Essentials"

It's that time of year when we can stock up on all that stuff that is completely terrible for us! Like CANDY! Publix had several different kinds of candy BOGO this week. We get very few trick or treaters at our house, so each year I volunteer at the Police Station for their Halloween Event which provides a safe place for kids to do their trick or treating --- Princess Penelope is far beyond the age of wanting me to take her trick or treating, so this way I still get to have the fun of it! The event has a tight budget and couldn't provide a fun trick or treat alternative without the help of donations, so I picked up a couple of bags. Other than that, the sales this week were kind of "meh". I'm hoping next week will be better as certain items are getting low and I'd really rather not pay full price! So, here's what I picked up today:

1 Smart  Balance Milk
1 Pack Nestle Toll House Cookies
2 Bailey's Coffee Creamers
2 Reynolds Baking Cups
1 Wonka Assorted Candy
1 Hershey's Assorted Candy
2 Eight O'Clock Coffees (RAIN CHECK!)

Spent: $23.84
Saved: $25.71 or 52%


  1. Sounds like some good bargains there!! I'm nearing the end of my desire to do anything for halloween...BUT, I definitely will have candy ready. My highschoolers still want to go out...good grief!

  2. That is so very nice of you. I'm sure they will really appreciate the candy. And look, you ended up still saving over 50% on your purchase! I really like your shopping posts.

  3. Thanks! The event at the police station is really a lot of fun! I usually dress up, too! (Yes, sometimes I still act like I'm 5!) Although I'm having a hard time figuring out a costume this year! I love Halloween --- decorations, dressing up, fattening food -- and no stress! What's not to love!
