Well, one person came to the Money-Saving Tips party yesterday: Gina shared some great ways to save on Lego. (In fact, her blog Moneywise Moms is chock-full of frugal tips.) If you missed the party, don’t worry, it will be held every Monday.
Halloween is over! Is anyone else kinda glad? I’ve always been a little at odds with the subsequent candy overload. I’m fine with treats in moderation (and I do snitch some of it), but I’m not cool with a candy free-for-all for days on end.
This year Craig and I came up with a system which satisfies all of us. For five days (which started Saturday because of church Trunk or Treat Friday night), the kids can weigh out 1/2 lb of their candy for the day. They can eat it when they want, and I won’t complain. But after Wednesday, it’s gone. We’ll stash the good stuff for the occasional treat and get rid of the rest.
My antique scale is accurate, and we tared it with the cereal bowl. Half a pound of candy is actually less than you might think, but it’s still plenty more than I would normally allow.
So what happens with the Halloween candy in your house? Do you just let them have at it, or do you have some controls in place?
