100 Days of Christmas Savings: Day 37, Use Discount Halloween Candy For Gifts and Baking

100dayshalloweenAfter Halloween, bags of tiny candy bars and little boxes of candy get marked down like crazy. Buy up! You can use the candy when Christmas comes. Buy bags of Hershey’s bars, Hershey’s Kisses, and anything else you can use in baking. You’ll pay much less for these items after Halloween than you will if you wait until December. You can use chocolate candies for cookies, bars, cakes, muffins, and other Christmas treats.

Individually-wrapped candy bags are also great for stocking stuffers. If you buy a big bag of mixed candy, grab a handful and stick them in each of your family member’s stockings. When sending gifts to people who live out of state, don’t pack the box with packing peanuts—pack the box with mini candy boxes! Not only will they love the gift that’s inside, they’ll love that you filled the box with candy. If you use your candy for filling boxes, be sure to use candy that won’t melt during transit. No one wants to open a box to find a sticky mess!

To get the best selection of candy, hit up grocery and household stores as soon as Halloween is over. Keep candy in a cool, dry area until you are ready to use it. This will keep it from melting together.

    Last year I bought candy on sale after Thanksgiving for cookie baking in Dec.

    I remember my Mom use to buy sugar,crisco and flour while it was sale before Thanksgiving. In my area very little baking items are sale during Christmas. Somehow my Mom knew how much to buy for a year. Miss my Mom.
