So with our wedding less than 50 days away it was time for us to start collecting the candy for our candy buffet! I shopped around looking for the best deals and I was going nuts with how expensive candy can be!!! I walked into Walgreens sunday night looking for glue dots (which they do not carry lol) and saw they had their Theatre Boxed Candy on sale! Normally $1.29-$1.49…and I usually see them go on sale for $1. This week they are $.69!!!!!! I did the math and figured out it would be about $1.84 a pound! (If i buy the 6 oz boxes lol) They limit 6 boxes each day so I have been hitting up the 2 by my house each day lol! I found the Good and Fruity boxes on clearance for $.37 a box! So I cleaned them out. The valentines candy was bought at 75% off. Hey if worse comes to worse it can be used as a filler or something, someone has to like conversation hearts right? 😉 The chocolate covered raisins and gummy bears are normally 2.99 each. This week they are BOGO free! So each bag comes out to be around $1.50 each! I am on candy overload right now! And I have to hide it all from FI so he doesn’t eat it before the wedding!!!!
Have you found any great deals??

We did conversation hearts as well…check this out $.50/lb! oh yeah! We also got these Charm’s suckers that had “love” sayings on them. We just took out the ones that said Happy Valentine’s. They were like $.25 bag!
We got everything else from Sam’s but yeah, good bargains are amazing 🙂
