We pick out a few things we like and then I take the rest to university. All the students spending hours working in the lab love the sugar pick-me-ups.

The leftover candy that didn't get passed out will be eaten by me and dh, or go to his work tomorrow and put in the break room.

Ds gets to keep all his candy. He can have as much as he wants this week. He usually eats 2 pieces after breakfast and another 2 in the afternoon. He loves planning out which piece he's going to eat next. But, by this weekend he'll be sick of it, and I'll be able to put whatever's left up on a shelf. Once he forgets about it, I toss it.

this is late...but perhaps it could help next year...

We just happened to be at a book store in early october cause it had a new fairy door my DD wanted to check out and she wanted me to read her this book.

Thankfully I'm perfectly ok with the idea of telling her a fairy comes and gets her candy and leaves her a toy instead...cause the book gives no real warning that this is what it is going to teach your kids...

Anyway, it worked really well for us this year (dd is 4).

Last year I explained to ds that I was concerned about him having so much sugar, chemicals, etc. and offered to trade ds the majority of his candy for something else he wanted. He actually took me up on it.

This year, I just let it go and, surprisingly, the Kid with the Insatiable Sweet Tooth has been self-moderating pretty well!

We let her pick out 5 favorite pieces and then watched The Great Pumpkin we got from the library. And then told her that if she left her candy for the Great Pumpkin that he would bring her something she really liked (in this case more fingerpaints and special paper...).....So she did happily, waited up for him like a kiddo for Santa and when she woke up in the morning, there were her paints (daddy was working late so he stopped at Dick Blick on the way home)....She was sooo happy and hasn't missed her candy.....She didn't have tons bc since it was just me with her step sister, we only went to about 12-13 houses...
