Are You Ready!!

Are you ready?? It's coming. The Holidays are before us and Halloween is the kick off to lots of celebration (and yummy food). I don't know about you, but I love this time of year. But, I also know that I have to figure out a plan of attack. What to do with all that candy? I know I don't need it, and my kids certainly don't need it. In years past we eat it, usually not taking long to finish it off. But this year has got to be different. Check out this website:
Have you ever done it before? I haven't, but I'm thinking about it.
Trainer Momma did some great posts last year. One was Wednesday October 28, 2009. Sorry don't know how to link a site.
I need ideas!!


  1. I have a friend who lets her kids keep 10 pieces and then she pays them for the rest. Then the husband takes the rest to work for his co-workers.

    This year I plan on letting my kids go buy the candy they want and then I'm getting rid of the rest. I'm all about eat the good stuff, don't waste your calories on the junk...even for my kids.

    Missy has a great idea...but if she doesn't put it on here I'll let you know....

  2. Give it to:

    nursing home reception desks
    youth group advisors =-)
    your favorite boutique store (they often have a candy jar for kids)


    divy it up in ziplock bags and freeze
    remove only the candy that truly tempts you and give that away.
    do a candy swap with a friend and you only get to eat those truly
    tempting items when you see each other

  3. I've solved the problem, I've already eaten all the candy now I just have to lose the weight I've gained eating it....Oh, and I have to buy more to give out on Halloween.
