Frugal Family Loads up on Low-Cost Halloween Treats

Stock up now for trick-or-treat night with packs of candy and coupons starting at $1 each.

Buying Halloween candy can be a tricky proposition. Buy too much or too early and the resulting temptation can be detrimental to your waistline. Buy too little or too late and those last-minute purchases can put a dent in your wallet. In order to save you both time and money, we searched the area high and low for the best deals on Halloween candy this week--and came up with a few good, inexpensive candy alternatives as well. Also, check out the Saturday store events at CVS and Toys 'R' Us for free fun and giveaways while you're there.

Thanks so much for the clarification, Debbie. I've heard those coupon packs sell out fast and was impressed that the Marple Newtown stores still had them.
