Halloween is officially over. Now what? We’ve got tons of candy, carved pumpkins and tired kiddos at our house. Well I’ve got a few ideas for you on what to do with your candy, where to donate your pumpkins and how to get your energy levels back up!
- Donating candy can mean cash $$$ - Our fiends at Yorktown Center are having a candy buy back event this week. Nov 1 -5 You can bring your candy into Yorktown Center’s guest services area. Trade in your unopened candy and they will pay you $1 per pound, up to 5lbs while supplies last. Money will be distributed in a Yorktown Center gift card. Check out the event here.
- Recycle your pumpkins - SCARE Glen Ellyn has a list of places you can donate your pumpkins this upcoming Saturday, Nov 5. There are a lot of options to choose from. Also, St. Marks in Glen Ellyn also has a pumpkin recycling program that runs from Nov 1-5. Look for the dumpster located near Hillside Ave. Why recycle pumpkins? They’re good for the soil, don’t need them to take up space in our landfill (hello less methane), and they are mostly water!
- Getting your energy levels up - EXERCISE! Yes that’s right. Get moving! What are your plans for staying away from holiday food temptations? Join us at FIT4MOM for fun and fitness this holiday season. We have moms only options in evenings and weekends and indoor options for our mom & child stroller fitness classes.
