Following the holiday season, you can make the most of post-holiday sales to acquire candies at discounted prices.

This provides a cost-effective strategy for planning ahead for upcoming celebrations.

For instance, silver candies obtained during this time can be reserved for New Year’s Eve festivities associated with ringing in the new year.

Red-colored candies can be used for Valentine’s Day gifts, or themed decorations, at a fraction of the original cost. I use any leftover red hot candies and warm them up in my applesauce to add a spicy cinnamon hit. 

For St. Patrick’s Day, use your green-colored candies, for party favors or decorations for gatherings.

It’s cheaper than buying it before the holidays.

Just freeze it so you don’t have to hide it from yourself or the kids!
