Walgreens & Halloween! Two favorites – Last Minute Cheap Deals! As I write the words that Halloween is a favorite holiday I have to put on the breaks and hear the words echo in my ears that as each holiday comes upon us I find myself saying, “Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas…you get the drill…is my favorite”, so just ignore that and humor me?
It isn’t often that we get an entire FOUR DAY Halloween weekend though. We’ve celebrated in the Midwest with Friday, Saturday, & Monday trick or treating, parties (adult & child) and every manner of contest, fright fest and haunted house. It’s Walgreens however that took the holiday bull by the horns and planned to give us two days of last minute deals good only today and tomorrow! (10/30 & 10/31).
I always plan for holidays in advance. I buy on sale, use in store specials, combine them with coupons feel smug and always have left overs. Not so this year. I was completely prepared the first week of October. Decorated the office, put out 90% off talking hand-grabbing candy bowls to frighten children and startle adults. The candy bowls worked, but between me, co-workers & assorted clients & visitors we ate too much. A huge Main Street trick or treat event wiped us out with three more wicked days of celebrating ahead of us. Enter Walgreens! Redemption!
