Wow! You win the most drastic tip! Glad you haven't given in to it!! My dad was allergic to nuts. So I know how serious that allergy can be!

I am allergic to nuts so I get the kids stuff with nuts in it. If I even attempted to eat it, I would die. That's a great deterrent. Unfortunately the same does not apply to pasta! emoticon

Well now there is a good tip. When tempted to eat something sweet, pick up a beagle instead! It doesn't get much sweeter than that!

Thank-you Lovelybeachgirl--My love for puppies is greater than my love for sweets and that is saying a whole lot! HA!HA! Those little pups are now 4yrs old. Their names are JR and Jake. My stepson has one and the other one lives in Montana with his family. I cried when they went to their new homes. emoticon

I have a bag now in the trunk of my car. Showed DH the bag and said...This bag is NOT to be opened until Friday afternoon! So...it' candy I don't like much (but I can still eat candy I don't like for the sake of eating something!), but by telling my DH to see that it is still sealed by Friday helps me stay accountable.

This is the earliest in some time I've bought the candy. I did so because we were at Costco and I know we won't get back there before then. It was a good deal on the candy. So...out of sight, out of mind...in the trunk, not MY trunk... LOL!

I am with you Lovelybeachgirl--- I always buy the candy that I don't like. I stay away from those creamy chocolate bars and chewy carmels or anything with chocolate and nuts. If I bought the good stuff I would eat it before the trick or treat kids even came to get it.LOL

I always always buy candy I won't eat......anything with coconut, I've never been desperate enough to eat those or anything that tastes like licorice. I buy tons of that stuff and I'm free and clear of Halloween! I also tend to bake goodies for the holidays with things I don't like!

I usually keep telling myself that if I eat the candy I won't have any for the kids, and that is going to be so selfish of me. Most of the time it works. Especially if I don't have money to buy more, so that way I have no choice, but to save it or disappoint the kids.

Share here tips/ideas you have to help each other avoid over indulging on Halloween candy. Examples:

Buying candy night before or day of so it doesn't tempt you

Buying candy you don't like...etc...

What other strategies do you use... I know I can use all the help I can get!
