Hoarding Candy

Just wanted to share this funny memory. Years ago when my kids were younger, they always had Halloween parties at school, then we would take them out trick or treating at night. My youngest son, who always saved everything,and I mean everything, would take a whole bunch of his candy and hide it from his brothers and sister. Well time went on and the candy would be forgotten. Well we always had superbowl parties at our house and my daughter and I would always make food and snacks for all the guys and their friends. Well next thing I know, my son gets out all that Halloween candy he had been hoarding all that time and sells it to his friends!!! And...believe it or not, they would actually buy it from him! We thought that was a hoot! Now he is a very smart, savvy young man who has a really good job and just bought his first house. We are very proud of him. Do any of you have any stories you'd like to share about your kids and their halloween candy? Or do they just eat it all and get it over with?

That's way cute :) I used to do the same, I never really liked candy all that much. I ended up saving all of my candy from Halloween and keep it in a drawer under my bed until the following year when all of it got replaced by newer candy. I also remember one time in my early school years my teacher said not to eat more than 3 pieces of candy a day otherwise we would get sick, and sure enough that night I had 4 pieces and got sick the next day.

This is funny. I was just telling my daughter that when she moved out of the house, I was cleaning her closet, and found two Easter baskets and two halloween pumpkins, still full of candy. Even though she was never big on sweets, she didn't want her brother getting her stuff, if she should decide she wanted candy. She quit trick or treating when she was about 10, she left home at 18, so there is really no telling how long those baskets sat in her closet.*L*

lol the best memory as a child I had and involved sweets was when my grandmother was alive. I was 4 and would steal her 5 pound bucket of sugar and hide under the sink and eat it by the spoonfuls...she would catch me after a little while. I am surprised I don't have health problems or over weight. (Don't get me wrong I weigh 185 now but Im also 8 months pregnant, before that I was over my healthy weight by 7 pounds though eekk). I wonder if my first born son will do the same with halloween candy?! It is cute and funny in a way.

well, I have no kids of my own but have nieces and nephews. I wish they are smarter like your kid. Imagine? he did think of a smart way to make money without building any capital to buys his products to sell? really smart ha?

He was always like that as a kid. Always trying to figure out ways to make money. When he did, he never spent it. Just saved and saved. Well that paid off when he got older and now owns his own home among other things. I am very proud of him.
