It’s easy to accumulate Halloween clutter from candy to costumes and decorations. Before trick-or-treaters come to your door, take time to cull through Halloween items. Sort no longer used decorations and costumes. Consider donating them to a local charity, such as Goodwill or Salvation Army. Toss out any damaged holiday decorations and old candy.
After culling through old Halloween items, if you want to update your Halloween decorations, consider buying them at Goodwill or Salvation Army. Think in terms of how you can stretch your decorations through November. Also, be mindful of where you will display and store them after the holiday.
Finding a place for Halloween items frees you to enjoy the seasonal treats and displays. Fall produce such as gourds, squash and pumpkins can be used for festive decorations. They can be carved and eaten. Baked pumpkin seeds can be a healthy snack. After using these natural materials, you can compost them.
Halloween clutter can’t haunt you, after you’ve cleared, culled and composted it. This gives you more time to savor the Halloween season.
