:omg: omg we nearly ran out of candy, the other night!

Note to self(s): get at least 100 more pieces (250-300), subject to change. :wink:

^ We learned our candy lesson 3 years ago when we ended up running out of candy, and having to make a quick run to buy more Halloween night.

We now buy roughly 400 pounds of candy every year for Halloween, and we usually only end up with a small bowl left over... The left overs give my partner snacks on for a month or two and then it's gone!

I basically live in a retirement complex (it's not actually one, but I don't think there's a single tenant who isn't at least half my age), there were no kids around. The only Halloween decoration I had was a light up corgi dressed as a bumblebee. Yes that exists. :lol:

Anybody done up their house for The Season? Just curious.
We just have our usual lights up on the porch. And a pumpkin, of course.:wink:

And, as reminded from last year, we have 250+ pieces of candy to hand out.
And not run out of. We hope.

For 2019 we have purchased just over 1,000 pounds of candy.... and of course it’s suppose to be cold and rainy. We will probably only go through about 800 pounds. :cry:

^ That's still a crazy amount of candy! By the way, you DO mean 1000 pieces and not pounds?
From your last year's post about it, you've now doubled the amount of candy, that you bought
last year! <shock> And if it does rain, and you have leftovers, it should still 'last' till next October, lol.

(Oct.31) Here's what we got out front, so far. I got lazy about putting the orange lights up.
So...not this time. Next year, I promise.

(Nov.01) This time, instead of being short of candy, we had nearly 100+ pieces left over! :shockr:

Nope, I meant pounds, not pieces lol. Every year we have grown in the amount of trick-or-treaters due to the light show. This year the weather ended up being clear!! No rain as first expected! We went through all of the candy except for about 20-30 pounds. :omg:
