No, that one doesn't work for me. It seems to be some kind of email link.

My mom used to make us share our candy too. (Only she took the chocolate bars!! emoticon She said she was saving them for smores, but sometimes they just disappeared and we did not get any smores!!)

Sharing is great! Trick or treating is fun! It's even a form of exercise! Maybe one year instead of staying home I'll walk around and give out candy on the street. Maybe. I'm not sure how that would work. (My kids are grown and we don't have a lot of kids on our street.)

We had some great homemade costumes though. Some dirt cheap - made out of cardboard.

SLOLOSER, we actually don't take the kids out for very long and we don't let them get too much candy, maybe only 2 blocks we hit up.

The thing in our house is they have to share their candy too. Once we get home and check it all we put it all into 2 mixing bowls and put it into the cupboard and have a couple pieces each day. I think there is still some gum in the bottom of the one bowl I don't use at all.

I don't know about the Fire Department bringing all the kids around!!! emoticon

Maybe I'm old fashion-ed but I like families doing it in their own neighborhoods.

CRAZYNDNCOOK - that's an interesting idea you had! I might have suggested a movie or something like that instead of costumes instead of more candy. An emphasis on something fun to do instead of eating candy. Maybe your kids would have gone for something like that.

I just realized a few days ago, that I probably won't even be home on Halloween! So I guess I won't buy any candy after all!

I am doing a kid's Halloween party, and I think we will play games and have prizes, but no candy!

Since our party is a couple days early and I imagine most of the kids will be trick or treating, I think I will tell the kids to wait until they go trick or treating for the candy. I am not anti-candy. I just think most kids get way too much of it at Halloween.

I live in the village and the FD brings the kids around in a "parade" fashion. It's safe, but I get about 300 kids. I suck it up because 3 of these are MY kids and they love it.

I started buying candy in August, and stash it in the freezer. I need about 10 bags to get me through the night. I buy all I can on sale and with a coupon. I buy an additional couple bags of "fill" candy from the dollar store. My neighborhood kids, and kids I KNOW live around here get the premium stuff ( hersheys, kit kats, reeses), kids I don't know get the "fill" candy. Works for me! When buying the bags on sale, 1.99 a bad, and usually I have a coupon of sorts, I spend about 20-25.00 on candy.

Not busting the bulge, but is on a budget.

I have suggested to the kids time and again that we should just spend the money we would use on costumes on candy instead that way we would get more candy and only the kinds we like.

But a no go with them, they want to go Trick-or-treating.

I have not decided what we will be giving away this year yet.

Likely it will be candy that I buy near the last minute. Something that will not tempt me too much. Lollypops are good. Kids like them. They are cheap. They do not tempt me too much.

Or I could go with stickers or something else not edible that the kids would enjoy. Maybe some small Halloween erasers.
