Its that day that either us parents hate or love. Halloween! What matters is that kids love it and we get to hopefully spend quality time with our kids scouring the neighborhood for candy. This year I am lucky because my husband will actually be home from work in time to go out Trick-or-Treating with us, so I am looking forward to that. We will all go out for a bit and then I’ll come back to hand out candy. The “junky candy” will go out, and when I get back I have full size candy bars (thanks to awesome coupons and a fortuitous sale at Shaw’s) to dole out. But while we are out…
Our neighborhood has become a Trick-or-Treating destination of sorts because we are in a newer subdivision in a rural town which homes are normally spread out. So we get a lot of foot traffic and I feel guilty just heading out of the house without leaving candy out. But my fear is that some greedy little bugger will dump the entire bowl into their bag and skedaddle. Its happened before and I’m sure it will probably happen again, but this year I crafted a sign to put near the bowl, in hopes of calling out the good side of the little goblins and ghouls and hoping that they can respect my candy honor system. Fingers crossed!
Anyways, in the spirit of sharing, here’s the file of the sign I created in case you too leave a bowl out.
And a little bit of coupon humor for day as well:
