Okay now that this semi-holiday is over it's time for me to head to the stores. The reason? HAHAHA! I just talked to my wife and she said that Target stores has all the halloween candy on sale at %60 off. Woo Hooo! She already bought my faves of reeses Peanut Butter cups and KitKats. Now later I'll get her faves, Smarties and Butterfingers. She said a big bag was just $1.14 cents tax included. Do you wait for the day after the holidays for the %50 or more off sales? I love the day after Christmas the most. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I always keep special budget for that purpose, Grandpa Bob. As in my place also, it happened all year round where they call it as 'stock clearance sale' and the price really discounted as the festival day was over. The same things of sales activity happen after Christmas. Good price with the quality remains. I like it.

Then we had a lot of packages of kool-aid as well. Then I also started handing out handfulls of my penny collection. HAHAHA! Those pennies are my casino stasch I cash in once a year for gambling. HAHAHA!! Had maybe 50 kids or more last night. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Wow! You have great discounts over there! The most we'd get is 50%, and still it isn't as cheap becuase it's imported. Anyway, we still take advantage of the discounted items. It's really fun to go shopping after the holidays, although I have to keep my wallet in check in case it ends up empty!

Grandpa, Grandpa, Grandpa...the last thing I need around the house is more chocolate. I like the day after Christmas though, Boxing Day is the best time to buy wrapping for next year.

Hi Grandpa Bob, I do love that things are always cheaper the day after the holiday, but to be honest I don't think I need anymore candy after the haul my daughter got last night lol! Before I had my daughter and we gave out all the candy you betcha I'd be at the store the day after Hallowe'en getting candy dirt cheap! Luv & Hugzz, PurpleTeddyBear.

How did you know I went shopping for candy.lol I went to Walmart and they have 50% off, which comes to $1.00 for a regular bag. I got a few of them, but there were a lot of people doing the same thing.:) That was nice of you to get your wife her favorite candy. I got my husband his favorites which are Reeses and Snickers.

I do love sales and definately look for them!! My husband and I have gone to the mall on boxing day in the past and it is absolutely crazy!! I would rather wait a couple days after the holiday and the sales are still there but not so much the mob :) As for candy, I do buy it when it is discounted like that!! I Loooooooove Chocolate! :) One other thing that I buy when there is a huge sale is clothing and shoes for my son (In larger sizes he can grow into...I just hang them in the closet!) This saves a lot of money as he needs a new waredrobe every season! :) Take Care My Friend and enjoy your goodies! :) ~Heavens~

The day after Christmas has become a tradition with me and hubby to head into Target and buy all our wrapping paper and cards for the following year - being tight I refuse to pay Target prices but when they are in the sale yippee a bargain and theirs are usually gorgeous. The day after Christmas is a holiday in Eng so I cant get used to here where its all over with and forgotten at midnight on Christmas Day I vote for a week long celebration :=)

Oh dear...that would be too tempting. We have Kit Kats and Smarties and some friends sent me Butterfingers which are so yummy but I've never had Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and I'm dying to try them.

I do visit the sales after Christmas for the good bargains. Its great to get items for the next holiday season at a good price. Last year, I even did well with 75% off sales, as there was a lot left in several stores in this area.
