Best Treats To Give Out To Trick-Or-Treaters



Remember back in the day,  when trick-or-treating, you would avoid certain houses because you knew what they were giving out for Halloween? 
In my neighborhood, we had the penny lady. One penny for every trick-or-treater.
And another house that always gave out apples. I always skipped those houses. No sense in wasting precious time getting something you don't want.

There was always stories of that house giving out full-size candy bars as well.. I never found it,  but I tried my best. 

If you like Halloween, you have to be the house with the good candy. After all,  You don't want to get egged.
I don't think kids really do that anymore.. or maybe I'm just one of the good houses with the best treats!

I'm here to help you out in finding just what to buy to have the best treats this Halloween. Not all will be candy related because some kids can't eat candy. It's always nice to have different options.

Glow sticks:
I moved into a neighborhood that has one house giving out for sickness every year. Most trick or treaters stop at that house first. Not only is it great for kids safety, but they think it's great. You can buy some on Amazon,  or go to the dollar store nearest you. 

Full-size candy bars (if you are made of money):
I always wanted to be that house with the full-size candy bars.. until I became an adult and realized how expensive it is to give 100+ kids a full sized candy.
My brother in law does it though.. he makes a lot of money so he is able to do stuff like that.

Hot Chocolate:
Another house in my neighborhood does this and I think it's brilliant. You can buy a hot cocoa maker and just give it to them in plastic cups. It is so cold out, parents would appreciate it. 
You can also give out those little packs of hot chocolate and they can make at home.

one of the most favorable candy

 this is my personal favorite,  and it seems to get snatched up quickly.

Anything with caramel is good in my book.

Kit-kat bars: always a favorite in my house. 

 my younger kids always go for a little bouncy ball instead of candy. They just love their toys. 

Also a fun toy for most kids. 

Skittles: can't go wrong with a classic

Sour Patch kids: my kids don't know what these are because I always take them for myself.

Stickers: these are fun for younger kids. And it's a benefit that it's not candy!

Dollar bills (also good if you are made of money): kids will take bills anytime.  Just avoid the loose change,  as they may throw it through your window. 



I'll make a quick list of things to avoid giving kids. These make the list because the kid will litter your lawn with them, or it will end up in the trash

Homemade snacks: only on the list because parents don't trust anything homemade
Pennies 
Apple's
Toothbrush 
Pencils 
Smarties
Mints
Raisins


Remember,  whatever you buy,  you might end up having to eat some yourself,  so get things that you like eating! 

Let me know if I missed anything by leaving a comment.

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!
