No Candy For YOU!

Monday, October 22, 2007

Recently someone passed along to me via email a coupon for a free bag of candy at a store chain.

Now I love a bargain and I love to pass them along if I can...that's a fundamental value of mine.

However, there's a NEW fundamental value on the block: health, wellness and NOT buying into the corporate sugar machines!

I realized that I could not, in good conscience pass this coupon along. I certainly knew that I was NOT going to use it...why encourage ANYONE to use it?

We have "Delete" buttons on our keyboard for very important reasons!

    hmmm, my *eyeballs* pinged at the thought of a coupon! i think this will be the 1st year i don't buy any bags of candy for halloween. we're giving quarters for the kids who do come bye... i would consider apples, but i don't want to candy them and don't want em chucked thru our window ;) Can't say as I won't be tempted though. Was in the store the other day and utterly amazed to see 6 or more aisles dedicated to Halloween and the piles of candy.

    Good job for you !!!
    i recently felt the same way with free donuts at work.
    They aren't doing anyone any favors .
    You really encourage me !

    My husband likes the 10 i have lost and he says he is proud of me .
    If I lose 60 i will be a whole new woman! lol .

    Much continued success
