Works for Me Wednesday: Halloween candy on the cheap!

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for another "Works for Me Wednesday" tip, as hosted by the blog carnival at We Are THAT Family. See this week's Works for Me Wednesday here.

I have waited until the last minute to purchase treats for Trick-or-Treaters.  Have you? If you're in the same boat, here is my plan for scoring some reasonably priced treats.

  • Go to CVS and use a gift card from my last new prescription to buy candy that is on sale there.  There's a 2 for $5 deal this week and I'll use clipped coupons, like the $1.00/2 Hershey's, Reese's, or Kit Kat Snack Size Bags, 9-22ozfrom the 10/17/2010 SS.
  • Go to Safeway and spend the $2 coupons from the fruit snacks deal on candy on sale there.
  • A last resort would be to buy the full-sized candy bars (30-pack) at Costco with the $4 coupon available in the Costco coupon mailer.  We get so many trick-or-treaters that I don't consider full size candy, even at this price, the most cost-effective method for our neighborhood.

What about you? Any ideas to share for getting treats on the cheap?
