Halloween Candy

Well since it's the day before Halloween, I figured that I had better go ahead and buy candy. Actually I bought some candy earlier in the month... but between me, my husband, and my 3 children, that candy is long gone! So my strategy for today was to buy candy that I don't like. I got to CVS and realized that there really is NO candy that I don't like, so I settled for candy that is non-chocolate.

This is what I bought:
1 32oz bag of Nerds, Sweet tarts, and Laffy Taffy @ $5.99
2 44oz bags of Skittles and Starburts @7.99 each = $15.98
Total = $21.97
-$4.00 off $20 purchase CVS coupon (sent via email to Extra Care cardholders)
-$4.00 ECB's
-$10.00 ECB's
plus tax =
$4.26 out of pocket for 3 big bags of candy!

I really didn't like using my $10 ecb's on this, but I was going to have to buy candy somewhere. We get TONS of trick or treaters in our neighborhood, so I didn't want to run out of candy. Actually, I hope I got enough!

So next week I will be starting from scratch at CVS!
