8 Spooktacular Tips for a Fun, Safe Halloween

by Maria Gracia Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest Organizing Article is available. Ghosts, witches, goblins and black cats . . . yes, it's Halloween once again. Here are 8 tips to ensure this holiday is a fun, safe one for you and your family. 1. Make a list. Make a checklist of everything you'd like to do for Halloween--such as making/buying costumes, attending an outdoor festival, carving a pumpkin, picking up some scary (or not-so-scary) books or DVDs at the library, taking the kids trick-or-treating, following safety precautions (traditional and covid-related), and baking pumpkin pies. 2. Decorate for the season. It's time to pull out your Halloween decorations from year's past. If they're not in one organized place this year, be sure you put them all in one organized place for next year when you're done with them. 3. Find the festivities. Using the Web and your local newspapers, find out what Halloween festivities are happening in your area. Schedule some outings for your family. Apple picking, pumpkin picking and hay rides are popular this time of the year. 4. Get your Halloween viewing organized. Look up Halloween flicks you plan to stream and get them into your “watch list.” Otherwise, search through TV listings and make a schedule of Halloween specials/movies that will be airing. If the family can't be together when a particular program runs, set your DVR to record it and watch it together later on. If you own Halloween DVDs, pull them out and place them in a basket near the TV. 5. Buy treats ahead of time. On your next grocery run, begin buying Halloween treats. By the time trick-or-treat is here, you'll be ready. I usually buy goodies (chocolate) that our family likes to eat. This way, if we have leftovers, we can freeze them and enjoy them throughout the year.  6. Organize treats into treat bags or 3-ounce cups. Spend time before Halloween, placing a few treats into each treat bag or 3-ounce paper cup. Every trick-or-treater will then get an equal amount of treats. Plus, you’ll be able to separate each bag or cup on a tray for no-touch, Covid-safe distribution. 7. Send out Halloween greetings. Halloween is a great time of year to keep in touch with family and friends. Don’t just opt for digital greetings this year. Send Halloween greetings via snail mail to make receiving them extra special. 8. Enjoy the season. Be sure to get yourself outside to enjoy the crisp, fresh air and the fall foliage. Take a walk at least a few times a week this month. Enjoy your neighbors' Halloween decorations. Walk through a corn maze. Take some photos for your memory book and your social media page.
