here comes November

November 1st, 2018 at 04:12 am

Well we seem to never have trick or treaters in my neighborhood but DH asked me to buy some candy in case...I think incase he wants some.

I was surprised at the cost of candy it is not something I normally buy so it seemed a little higher then I expected for fun size bars.
I was wondering what other items people may not buy very often and then seem surprised what the price is ?????

I only did very little OT because we really did not have the work. I was surprised that my coworker has stayed 2 hours extra a day and most of that is watching tv on her phone. just in case last minute emails came in before the month end cut off. Sometimes I think i could use the OT money but cannot justify sitting there doing nothing.

    Local discount grocery store had several brands of the fun sized bars for $1.99 a bag. No kids here, so I dropped off several bags to the candy bowls at the local businesses we patronize regularly. Chocolate seems to make everyone happy. ;-)

    That was the price I was used to about 1.99 a bag but the store I stopped at ( a large grocery chain) had them at 3.00 a bag.
    it just seemed high but did not have the time to check around I was not going to buy any but at last minute DH asked me to pick up some. It just seemed a bit much but since I never buy candy I was surprised.

    We buy candy the day after Halloween when it is 50% off at Walgreens. Much cheaper. We don't hand out candy. We're a teal pumpkin house and give out silly pencils as it gives kids with allergens the opportunity to trick or treat. You just set a teal pumpkin on your porch to indicate you are an allergen free house. We're always shocked by how happy kids are to get pencils, even the kids who can eat candy. I mean, they are just pencils, but these kids just light up. But we still like some candy for ourselves and we don't need it on or before Halloween at those prices.

    Candy seems to be getting more and more expensive. For our Trick or Trunk at church, we were expected to come up with at least 300 pieces of candy on our own and then another 300 was given to us. Think about how much all that cost. Yikes!

    I have been buying craft stuff at thrift shops...last week we went to Hobby Lobby and I saw a pair of pillowcases similar to the ones I just finished a couple of weeks ago. I spent $1.50 for the unopened package...they were priced at $17.99 for a similar package. I about fainted. I figured I got a good deal, but just didn't realize how good a deal it was.
