Have some leftover Halloween candy on your hands? Here are a few ways to sort it, and clean up your house. The idea of candy always seems exciting at first, but after a week or two, the leftovers can sit for ages. Even if you're not the trick or treating age anymore, these tips work with anything you might have too much of. With a few tips, you can have all unnecessary items out of sight.
First things first, sort out the candy that you do want to keep. I usually keep one of each kind of candy I receive, unless it's my favorite. When sorting this pile out, make sure to ask yourself, "Am I really going to eat this?" And if you can't answer yes confidently, then it's time to say goodbye.
The next step is to take anything that could be used for baking or other uses should be sorted into a pile. I always keep chocolates for baking because they make it more fun. Any candy that is colorful also makes great decoration. Some candies that I would recommend using for baking are m&ms, Hershey's, Snickers (or other chocolate bars), Kit Kats, etc.
The next thing I like to sort for when it comes to candy, is for later holidays. I always save some candy to decorate my gingerbread house during Christmas time. Some candies that are great for decorating are Smarties, Jolly Ranchers, Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, Swedish Fish, Twizzlers, Laffy Taffy, etc. You can save candy for any decorating idea or craft you would like to try in the future. Trust me , you won't regret it.
With anything you have leftover from sorting or giving out to kids, you can decide what you would like to do. Many dentists offices will often buy your candy back per pound and donate to the troops. You can also bring leftovers to work, school etc., because they are a great contribution to any event. Whatever you do, make sure it makes you happy, because that's what giving should do.
I apologize for the poorly written/formatted post today, because I am currently in Arizona on vacation, and am writing this on my phone. I am planning on making a post in the travel section about my trip, so let me know in the comments if you would be interested in that. Right now, I'm going to head inside and defrost my fingers, because I've been sitting outside for 30 minutes typing this and I'm frozen! Hope you have a great week and that this inspired you.
