  • Ya especially because i make extras cause theres always those family members who invite more or ill have extra cause all the kids didnt show up. i would save them for the next party as long as u take all candy out first u will save money that way and you can always add more just go to the party store or the 99 cent store toadd more at a cheap price.

  • We don't have the extra bags (I only make for the ones who RSVP'ed a yes since I do put quite a bit of money on those things), but sometimes there will be a pack of something and there will be a left over toy or two. All those little extras just go to DD. She has a small sized canvas grocery bag that she has filled with toys from hers and others goodie bags from birthday or holiday parties.

  • Yes. I send them to school with my son for the treasure box (his teacher lets the kids pull a toy/treat from it every Friday if they have been good all week)

  • Yes I do. I usually give them to my cousins kids. They are always the last to leave the party lol, so they just get extras.

  • we have stuff left over from parties and we either donate it to a local place where we have gotten help from or to the local neighborhood kids and have sometimes sent the items to school as a treat for the class
