What to do with left over holiday candy.

If you are anything like me, you ration out holiday candy and then end up with tons left over.  What to do with it?  Well here is your answer.  Old spaghetti sauce jars washed out and dried.  Place the can in them and save the candy for later.
The Smarties will get used fastest since we use them when S is having blood glucose lows.  But the rest will last a while and this takes up far less room than gallon baggies in the cabinet.  

Why store candy in your food storage?  Well there are 3 reasons:
  1. Comfort and normalcy is important in rough or stressful times.  Remember if we as adults find it stressful, the kids will too.  A little piece of candy every once and a while will go a long way to soothe a stressed out child.
  2. Sugar is a quick energy boost although short term.
  3. If there is widespread problems, SHTF situations, you can use candy and especially chocolate for bartering.  Think about it.  Sometimes couldn't you just kill for some chocolate?
There you go recycle jars and store some candy in them.
