  • Wrap it up tight and put it somewhat hidden in the fridge. When I have sweet things in my house (which I am trying to do much less of since I have the same self-control issues!) I hide them, or put them up too high or something so that I either forget about them for awhile or they are not so easily accessible so it continues to tempt me.

  • The trash is a good place for it! Pour ketchup or ho sauce or something over the whole thing. I can't have cake in my house either. A little piece here, a sliver there, and half of the cake is missing and I have a headache from all the sugar!

  • I bought my husband the snack cakes to take with him before he left...but before he did he gave our son one package and the kid only ate one...maybe I should put it in his dresser so when he gets his clothes out in the morning he can be surprised and knowing it is there as surprise might keep my hands on the keyboard and off the sugar
