    We let ours pig out on candy last night after they were done. None of them asked for a single piece today!

    Confession: I actually go through their candy every year and pick out things that don't look like Halloween candy. I then save those for Christmas stockings.

    After sifting through DS' candy on Halloween, there are somethings that just should be banned. One person, gave out the goodie bags that you can't see inside of. When we opened it, it was her business card and candy canes. I am sure they are from last year.

    Not sure if it's a good idea or not (nutritionally, psychologically, economically), but we buy candy from our kids. Usually they sell us 2/3 or so of their candy and just keep their favorites. I use their bought candy to fill our next piñata.
