Got lots of Halloween Party Stuff?
What are you going to do with it all?
Halloween is over, right? It's November 1 (or later...).
With my decorating, I like to use as many "fall" decorations as I can - hay bales, scare crows, black crows, pumpkins, brightly colored leaves...these decorations can last me through Thanksgiving until it is time to pull out the Christmas decorations.
Hay bales, colored leaves, acorns and pumpkins are so festive and we keep them around for the next year.
But what about the bats, ghosts, cauldrons, and spider webs? Those decorations that you keep and display year after year?
What I do with my Halloween theme stuff is collect it all together and store in cardboard boxes, or better yet, in large plastic storage boxes like these in the garage, basement or attic. I prefer plastic boxes because they just seem to hold up a little better, last longer and keep the Halloween storage items in better shape for the next year.
A great free idea for storage...
If you have a cat and buy the large plastic kitty littler containers (the ones that are shaped like a box and have full size lid on top), when you've used up the litter you can reuse the box for storing your Halloween decorations or any other item for that matter. Clean it out well first, and you may want to buy the clear boxes so you can see what is inside at a glance.
If you buy the large plastic boxes for storing your decorations, you'll sometimes find them in an orange color. If you buy containers for different holidays (green for Christmas, Red for Valentine's, a pastel for spring, orange for Halloween...etc.), you'll be able to distinguish one season's decoration box from others easily.
