If your kiddos end up with more candy than you want to see them goblin’, you might try talking them into selling some of it back.
Tomorrow, November 1st, all three locations of Molen Orthodontics will be offering their annual candy buy back event from 3-6:30 PM. The pay out rate is 2.00 a pound (not too shabby)! Kids may bring a maximum of 10lbs. and they’ll also score an extra dollar for coming in costume and one more buck for donating two or more cans of food. Molen has locations in Sumner, Auburn, and Enumclaw
If there isn’t a Molen office near you, you can also try looking for a candy buy back site at HalloweenCandyBuyBack.com. I saw sites in Port Orchard, Kent, and Renton. Do call before you head to one of these, as I haven’t verified the info.
I should note that I’ve never participated in one of these events before. I got the scoop on the Molen event from Nicole at the Sumner office, but you’re welcome to double check before you head out. If you know of another, do share!
I’d also love to hear your thoughts if your kiddos have participated in one of these. Were they glad to get the cash, or sad to lose their stash? Do you have another strategy for dealing with the sweet stuff? Feel free to share that, too!
Honestly? My kids tend to come home and pig out for a couple days, and then it’s done. We do try to do some serious brushing!
What’s really spooky is thinking about how much money orthodontists must make. I’ve got two who are going to need braces……BOO!
New here? I write just about family events and activities for the South Puget Sound. I’d love to have you come back again. You can also use one of those cute ‘ola buttons in the top right to subscribe to my feed or reader or join us on the SFM Facebook page. It’s a great place to get quick ideas from parents near you!
