Former Kate Plus 8 star Kate Gosselin ran into a dilemma when an unexpected noreaster halted her sextuplets from trick-or-treating this year. With a little talk among her friends, Gosselin came up with the idea of holding a “Halloween Candy Sale.”
Through her blog, Gosselin shared this great idea with fans and parents who may be interested in using the idea themselves next year! Take a look at what she wrote below:
“A friend suggested I have a candy hunt throughout the house and let them collect their candy in their Halloween pumpkins! What a genius!”
Instead of having your kids out trick-or-treating in the snow or darkness, you can buy a bunch of candy yourself at the local grocery store. Find your kids’ favorite and start the hunt in your home!
“I was thrilled to find ALL the Halloween candy on clearance since it was a day after Halloween and filled a basket for only $21 instead of $35-$40! What a bargain! Bargains make my heart sing and this find made me even more excited to carry out my plan!
Once we got home from the bus stop, Mady helped to hide the candy and once dinner was over, we all paraded to the basement for open season on candy hunting! What a huge hit! The squeals of joy emitted were so rewarding! Then up stairs for our typical Gosselin Candy Sale!”

What do you think? Will you try this next year instead of going out to trick-or-treat?
