Hi Everyone-

Quick post today but wanted to remind you that today most “Halloween” items go on sale for at least 50% off. Here are some great things that you can pick up during the sales to add to your preps:

  1. Pumpkins!! Here are some fabulous ways to use pumpkin: can cubed pumpkins, make pumpkin butter, roast  pumpkin seeds, save pumpkin seeds, dehydrate pumpkins, and don’t forget about putting some away for your doggy’s upset tummy!

  2. Glow sticks! These make excellent emergency lights. You can also use them to mark things outside that you would like to be able to see while camping.

  3. Hard candy. Dum Dum lollipops and jolly ranchers will sure be a treat if you are living off the canned goods, beans and rice you have stored away. Peppermint candy is great for human stomach aches as well.Jolly Ranchers

What are some other great items and uses for the after Halloween sales? Share your ideas in the comments!


  1. I never would have thought that Halloween would have had this many opportunities for prepping. Normally I have just been concerned if there were any Reese’s on sale. Great idea on the peppermint candy!

    • It’s easier to find the peppermint after Christmas obviously but hard candy (chocolate turns gross after awhile) is great for fatigue, blood sugar and just plain boredom of long term storage foods.

      Thanks for the comment 🙂

  2. Candles are usually a good item to pick up for prepping. Who cares what color they are when the lights go out.

    • Very true! I looked today hoping to find tea lights and couldn’t find any! I did find the fake plastic ones that are battery operated but not exactly helpful for us.

  3. Just something I read on TEOTWAWKI site that being in a closed space with scented candles is not a good idea. Some can even make you ill. If you’re going to be stuck in your house for days on end you don’t want to be filling the house with any overpowering smells, and I guess some of the cheap scented candles you can buy have ingredients in them that can be quite bad for you. They are only meant to be burned for short amounts of time. Just thought I’d pass that on since you were talking about candles on sale.

    • Very good advice. I personally prefer solar lights to candles for a lot of reasons but I still have a stock of candles if plan a, b, & c don’t work out.

  4. I try to find paper plates, napkins , and insulated cups on clearance.

  5. Last year I found Halloween duct tape on sale for 75% off because it had candy corn designs on it.
