Each year I do it.
I tell myself not to, but myself doesn't listen. Ever.
As soon as the Halloween candy appears on store shelves (sometime in July, I believe) I begin to stockpile for October 31st. To lessen the pain, I usually purchase one or two bags at a time, making sure that there is:
1) At least ONE extra bag of Rockets
2) At least ONE bag of good chocolate bars that we like (Peanut Butter Cups, Crispy Crunch and Oh Henry's).
3) Enough candy for oh, the entire city.
For you see, I seem to constantly be under the delusion this is still the 90's when we would be under seige by hundreds of Trick or Treaters. Nowadays we are lucky if we have a few dozen screaming at the door.
But do I adjust my shopping levels? Ha! Don't be silly! I live in a nightmarish fear of "running out".
BTW, we have NEVER "run out" of Halloween candy.
So I end up with bowls of candy left over and even unopened bags to be safely
hoarded stowed in my desk drawer at work.
Which is a shame.
