Halloween Safety 101






Everyone is gearing up and getting ready for Halloween, Whether it is your child's 1st or 5th time going Halloweening. My kids are always looking forward to Halloween, Besides Christmas this is their favorite holiday.

They get all excited that they get candy!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, I love decorating, shopping for costumes and planning out our night.

However, Accidents do happen. Here are 10 tips to ensure safety this Halloween:

1. Avoid masks and costumes that could cover the face and obstruct your child's vision while walking. You can modify the costume or purchase a mask that fits the child.

2. Carry flashlights with you. Even use reflective stickers on dark, hard to see costumes. Energizer & Rayovac sell flashlights and head gear. Which can be purchased at any mass. retailers.

3. Walk, Never run. Your child could trip or fall. There could be obstructions, that you or child cannot see in the dark. 

4. Go out early , If Possible. To ensure you're not walking out in the dark.

5. If you have toddler, bring along a wagon or stroller in case they get tired or no longer want to walk.

6. Be selective of the houses you visit, visit well known houses or neighbor hoods. Only visit the houses that have their porch light lit. 

7.  Adult Supervision, Personally as a mom I would never let my 8 year old out alone with his friends. A child under 13 should not be with out adult supervision.

8. Inspect all the candy when you get home. If it is not in its orginal wrapper, opened or looked like it had been opened, It should be tossed.

9. Ensure your cell phone is fully charged and all batteries are new before heading out.

This year we are going to the mall for trick or treating & a fabulous haunted "house" and as usual we will be trick or treating in our neighborhood.





I wish you all a happy, safe Halloween!

Marlboro Ranch - 1

I have been entering Marlboro Contests for the last 3-4 years. I have won many prizes like zippo lighters, sleeping bags, ashtrays, a Kelty tent and more. Recently, Marlboro held a promotion (expired now), A promotion where you entered daily and everytime you entered you earned 500 points plus 1 entry in that weeks daily prize. Points were redeemed for Cameras, Lighters, Tents, Kelty cache box, and more. The daily entries for prizes (which you could not redeem points for) were for some pretty slick prizes. Like a motorcycle, $5,000 and a cash register, A trip to the sought after Marlboro Ranch, and many more. The contest ran for several weeks and recently ended. I entered religiously, gathering up my 500 daily points, I really wanted the tent. When I saw Marlboros weekly prize of a trip to the ranch, I excitedly told my hubby how amazing a trip of this magnitude would be. I even remember telling him winning would be nearly impossible. Over 3 million people enter these promotions on Ma…
