10 Non-edible Trick or Treat Ideas that will ensure your house doesn’t get toilet papered.

Here are 10 Non-edible Trick or Treat Ideas that kids of all ages will enjoy without all the sugar.| Home.Made.Interest.

Soon it will be candy overload time.  Don’t get me wrong, I love taking my kids trick or treating but the amount of candy they bring home is a bit much. I have younger kids so I’m only trick or treating for an hour and even in that short amount of time they accumulate several pounds of candy!

Party Planning Made Easy {www.homemadeinterest.com}

Melinda and I do a lot of party planning and as much as we love our families sometimes we need to get out of the house to be able to focus. When Gold Peak Coffee asked us to spread the word that they are available in new markets it was perfect timing because we had just
been asked to help plan a bridal shower for a friend. Trying to do that from home is always hard, there are a million distractions, kids, husbands, pets…it’s so much easier (and more fun!) to meet up at our favorite restaurant, have a nice steak and talk about plans over a cup
