It’s Tuesday – so the grocery ads should be out later today – hopefully we’ll get them in the mail today. We don’t have an early edition of the Albertsons ad, so it won’t be early again this week. We hope to get them all up by the end of the day!
Halloween is 30 days away – Do you give away the same candy every year or just whatever you can find on sale? By watching for sales early you can save a lot of money on the candy you give out (instead of paying full price the day before) – but then if you have candy in your house, do you risk eating it beforehand? I’d love your ideas for creative things to hand out besides candy and I’d love to hear how you save and/or plan for Halloween.
Every Wednesday through Halloween we are will be posting a round-up of the best Halloween candy prices. So if you have a harvest festival, Halloween party or just need to stock up the office candy stash – it will be your place to go for sweet candy prices.

Don’t worry about cooking dinner tomorrow night – you can go get FREE Thai Cashew Chicken at Panda Express on October 3.
FOR THE LOCAL NW FOLKS
Olympia – Did you know that TJ Maxx opened in West Olympia on Sunday? It’s in the old Borders building, near Eddie Bauer and Bed Bath & Beyond. I stopped in today and it was PACKED with people. I looked around but did not find any deals for me – a pair of jeans was $49.99, a cute ballerina outfit for my daughter to wear to dance class was $17, tops $25. It just didn’t really seem that great to me, but maybe it’s because they are better brands than Ross? I’d love your thoughts on TJ Maxx – what are the best things to buy there? Did you find any good deals this weekend?
