Candy For Cash (or Toys)

Is this what Halloween looks like at your house?  A big pile of candy!

Similar to the guns for cash program that many police departments have done, we’ve developed a candy for cash program at my house.  The kids can get as much candy as they want and eat a few pieces tonight.  But, they then have to pick their favorite pieces and can keep about a gallon ziplock full of candy.  For the past few years, we’ve actually taken the candy to ToysRUs and basically given it to the cashier as we buy something.  The kids think it’s actually being used to buy the toys while we both get rid of the candy and gives them some incentive not to rot their teeth and eat unhealthy amounts of sugar for months to come.
