Last year around Halloween, I was totally smitten with the idea of decorating for the season using candy and apothecary jars. Here’s an example from Martha:
I wanted to go with black and orange candies. However, when I started looking to buy it, it all seemed really expensive, so I did not end up buying very much. As a result, it didn’t really look the way I wanted it to.
So here’s my tip of the day: PLAN AHEAD & SHOP EARLY.
I was at the Dollar Tree today and I noticed that they were carrying orange and black candies. So what that it’s June?
When buying any type of foodstuff at the Dollar store, I check for two things:
These orange candies and the two packages of black Twizzlers I bought meet my requirements. I bought them and will store them in the pantry until October rolls around.
By keeping my eyes open I will avoid paying top dollar for what I want, as well as avoid extra stress and running around.
I iz so smaahht.
