I always have the kids go through the day after Halloween and put the candy they want to keep in a ziplock bag. They get a ton of candy and they usually want less than half of it. I put their names on the bags. Some years we have a huge pile they don't want and only a quart size bag that they do.
Then we donate the rest to a charity organization our church works with that feeds the homeless. I know it's not nutritious food, but even the homeless like a little treat now and then.
Oddly enough, the stuff the kids don't like is the stuff I'd be likely to swipe, so most of it is out of the house.
In the hopes of reaching the moon, men fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet. ~Albert Schweitzer
