Day 444 - November 1, 2010

November 1st means one thing and one thing only in our house...1/2 price Halloween candy! It's a tradition my mother started when we got too old to go trick or treating ourselves. For Halloween night, she would buy 1 large box of chocolate bars to hand out to sweet little costumed kids. Then the following morning, my mother would head out to the nearest Zellers (the equivalent of Wal-Mart for all you unfamiliar American folk) and basically buy them out of their Halloween candy. We're a family that loves a great deal and there is nothing better this time of year than candy for 50% off.

So following in our mother's footsteps this morning, we set the alarm a little earlier than usual and headed to the nearest Wal-Mart. With delicious treats for less than 3 cents a piece, I'd say that we scored big time! Looks like we'll be enjoying Halloween treats into the New Year!

Nicely done, the sales aren't quite that good around here this year but after heading to three stores with the boys in tow (one of whom kept asking "Is that on sale? Is that one on sale?") I caved and bought a bunch for just on ok price. Doing my best not to call Dave and ask if the Zellers he went to had some good deals...

Oh no! I forgot to buy my 1/2 price candy yesterday. I always stock up for the office candy bowl.

Love that tradition. I did it once after Easter and threw it all in the freezer and we enjoyed it all summer. I am such a sucker for the mini candy bars though, I don't know if it would be safe with me!

Love your Disney photo. We did Disneyworld for Halloween and had a blast.
