Every year, we end up with TONS of candy after Halloween. My husband is like a big kid when it comes to Halloween. It doesn't matter if it's raining or snowing, we will be out trick-or-treating for the whole 2 hours. Plus, the trunk or treat that we go to for Big Ripples elementary school and Little Ripple's school does a trick or treating event through the building. There's also trick or treating at the nursing home that Mr. Ripple's grandma is at. We usually at least do these 4 events. The girls are really excited for them and like to be able to wear their costumes more than once. But really, its too much candy.
One thing I like to do is put a stash of the candy away before the kids even miss it. Then at Christmas, I use that left over candy as stocking stuffer filler to go along with all the little gifts that I purchased for their stockings.
