If you’re anything like me, you’ve eaten way too many sweets and treats this month. Why in the world would you want to stock up on candy at after Christmas sales you ask. Stores always have holiday wrapped candy left over and they discount it up to 75% off the week after Christmas. I take advantage of these sales to buy what appears to be Christmas wrapped candy, but really is candy for 3 upcoming holidays.
Stores always have candy that is wrapped specially for the holidays that they discount at the after Christmas sales. Look for not-Christmas specific candy. A candy cane is always going to say Christmas no matter what you do to it. But there will be lots of other candy that is fine year round. It’s marked down because it’s wrapped in Christmas-y colored foil or is in a Christmas-y bag. That won’t be a problem for us.
What looks like Christmas candy becomes something else when it’s taken out of the Christmas-y bag and separated out into each color. It becomes Valentine’s candy, St. Patrick’s day candy and Mardi Gras candy!
I used after Christmas sale candy to make all these gifts. And I saved 75% by buying sale candy! So mark your calendar and make your shopping list now. You’ve got February and March holiday gifts just waiting for you.
