I know, I know it’s only November 2nd, but I hate to be the bearer of bad news…Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Start by gathering all of your Halloween decorations, books, CD’s and DVD’s into one room of your home. If you don’t have a storage tote, grab a box or large trash bag to store your items.
Now would be a great time to double check all the decorations or books to see if any repairs need to be made before the next holiday season. My poor Jack-O’-Lantern needed a dentist this morning….nothing a little hot glue couldn’t fix. I can not begin to tell you how much I love my hot glue gun!
As you go through your Halloween things decide whether or not it is worth saving for next year. Is the item tired and has seen better days or are you so sick of picking up the sticky tongue off the wall? Now would be a great time for it to mysteriously drop in the trash can ever to be seen again….just a thought!
