Candy for Valentine’s Day, or just because you like candy

It’s true, I spent 18 years being the Mean Mom, the You Don’t Need More Candy Mom, and now that my kids are in college I regularly pick up obscene amounts of candy on sale to stock their dorms. Why? I tell myself it’s to make sure they have enough to share with their friends (and maybe enough to make new friends…), but there’s definitely some element of “You’re grown now and I get to be fun” in there, too.

Whether you have kids in the dorm or kids who need to make 32 valentines to pass out to classmates next month or you’re ready to stock up for next Halloween, or, heck, no kids at all and you just like candy, right now Amazon has this 31.9 ounce bag of Skittles and Starburst available for $8, which isn’t too bad. Buy it on Subscribe & Save to get free shipping and up to an additional 15% off (if you have 5+ monthly items), and clip the 20% off coupon, too. You could end up with nearly two pounds of candy (honestly, 31.9 ounces? why not add one or two more pieces and go for the full two pounds?) for just over $5 shipped.

(Let us not comment on me posting this the day after I found you a toothbrush deal. I swear it’s a coincidence.)
