In previous years, people made sure to buy plenty of Halloween candy to hand out to trick-or-treaters. This year, celebrating Halloween in the regular way could be risky. Changes must be made to avoid spreading COVID-19. The unexpected result is that you can save money on Halloween candy this season.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) trick-or-treating is considered an unsafe activity this Halloween. This means you won’t need to buy as much Halloween candy as you may have purchased in previous years. It is fine to buy a little Halloween candy for your family to enjoy, and save money on it at the same time.
Avoid impulse buying. Things have been rough this year, and many people reach for sweets when they feel stressed. In many places, Halloween displays have already been put up in stores. This could influence you to buy Halloween candy that reminds you of better times. Again, a little bit is fine. Just be careful to stay within your budget.
People with large families can save money by purchasing a family-size bag of Halloween candy. You can get more candy for less money than if you bought several smaller bags of Halloween candy. This plan works best for families that all happen to enjoy the same kind of candy.
Take your time. Some candy companies started shipping Halloween candy to stores earlier this year than in past years. It appears they want to stretch out this candy-buying season. This means you can enjoy Halloween candy for longer this year, and make it fit within your budget.
Are your kids disappointed because they cannot go trick-or-treating this year? Parents can buy some Halloween candy for them to enjoy at home. It won’t cost much money to pick up a bag or two of candy.
