RVA Deals

I know what you’re thinking: Who in their right MIND would appreciate a heads-up on special deals and savings!?! I know, I know…apparently SAVING money on common things is a “thing” in and of itself. Whatever… Therefore, we present you with saviest of all savey Richmond savings!

This Saturday is the first of October, which means it’s time to start watching for the best deals on Halloween candy. A good price for “brand name” bags of fun size miniatures is $2 a bag, and $1.50 if you can combine with a coupon such as the “$1.50 off 3 bags of Mars brands” from Sunday’s RedPlum insert. Whoppers, Milk Duds, Twizzlers, Snickers, Milky Way and 3 Musketeers are all $2 at Kroger right now.

However, it’s important to know thyself. This buy-ahead strategy backfires you eat all the candy before Halloween!
