NO TRICKS, JUST TREATS
Stay organized by purchasing your candy by Friday and filling your candy bowls so you are ready for Halloween. Any candy you do not use can be organized in your pantry shelves. One of my favorite tips is using the modular pull out drawer for your candy because it makes it easy to pull out and grab whatever you need when the candy buckets need replenishment.
BONUS TIP: Before you fill your drawer or pantry shelves with current Halloween candy, declutter any old candy from last year. Don’t worry, everyone does it ;) Simply declutter any expired and unused candy and start fresh this Halloween.
Tip # 2: Organize Your Halloween Decor
It is so important to keep all your holiday decor organized. There are lots of holidays throughout the year so the more organized we stay, the more time we can spend enjoying these special occasions. If you are a Halloween lover, then you may need a dedicated Halloween box, but if you only have a few decorations I suggest organizing them in a Halloween/Fall box. This allows you to organize:
Tip # 3: Declutter And Organize Your Costumes
Do you find your costumes accumulating over the years? I find that my home organizing clients did not want to waste the money they spent on costumes each year, but then admitted they only wore their costume once. If there are pieces of your costume you can incorporate in the future, or pieces you wear every single year, keep those and organize them in a bin labeled costume accessories.
This includes items such as:
These are pieces you can always repurpose or wear again, and you may even be able to use for a class play or themed party.
Tip # 4: Last, But Not Least. Get the Whole Family Involved in the Clean Up!
Having the kids help with the clean-up plants those early seeds of organization your children will need to be successful in life. Studies show, kids who are given responsibility early on grow to be more self-confident and self-aware. Take this opportunity to activate the reward center of their brain, by allowing them to only taste all that Halloween candy AFTER they help you clean up. This will give them the incentive they need to participate, making the holiday weekend that much easier to manage!
Have a wonderful Halloween everyone!
