I know, I know - I just disappeared with no explanation. I will get back to you on that.
But I did want to make sure you knew that NOW is the time to stock up for next Halloween!
Went to Target this morning and costumes, decorations, etc. were at 70% off and candy was at 50% off.
Watch carefully on the food, if your kids are like mine, they don't care one whit if they have granola bars, macaroni and cheese or fruit roll ups that are decorated like Halloween from now until Thanksgiving. Ha!
But I also picked up several Funfetti cake mixes - you'll have to look closely, but some of them didn't expire until 2014 so for just a few cents I bought 2 cake mixes and 2 icings that I can use for next Halloween.
CVS is also clearancing their Halloween stuff, but it's only at 50% off right now - and at the one store I stopped at, they had stuck it on an end cap.
