Oct 2320142014 Halloween Candy Buy Back Program


If you don’t want your kids eating all their Halloween candy, check out the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program.  This is an annual program is sponsored by area dentists. Kids trade their candy in for other prizes. Once the candy is collected, it is sent to U.S. military deployed overseas.  Its easy and its a great cause!  Plus it gives you and your gamily a great excuse to not eat the leftovers!

How does the program work?

  • Participating dentists “buy” back kids’ Halloween candy at a scheduled event.
  • The dentists “buy” the candy with cash, coupons, toothbrushes,  and other creative exchanges.  They can partner with local businesses to give away coupons for food, services, goods, etc.  They can give away Hygiene Kits or set up an Opportunity Prize.
  • Each kid gets a ticket per pound of candy for an opportunity drawing to win special prizes, etc.
  • Dentists then send the candy to Operation Gratitude or other Military support groups that ship the candy  to U.S. Military deployed in harm’s way.

See if there is a dentist participating in your area. Can’t bear to give it all away? Check out this post for some Creative Uses for Halloween Candy!

Oct 232014Pottery Barn Kids: Quilted Stockings – $19 (Shipped)


Pottery Barn Kids has their ever popular Quilted Stockings on sale for just $19 a limited time. This isn’t a huge savings off the regular price but these stockings are never deeply discounted. If you want to add personalization, it’s an extra $7. Shipping is free which is an added bonus.

Many of these styles also sell out closer to Christmas so you may want to take advantage of some of the more popular ones like the train.  If you are looking for something a little more classic, the Quilted Velvet stockings are also $19.

I went back and looked at last year to see if we saw deeper discounts. On December 19, one day before the Christmas shipping cutoff they had them for $14. Several of the styles were already sold out though. So you could maybe save $5 and take your chances they do that again for Christmas Eve delivery. Or you can get them now and be done.
