This doesn’t have to be you. You have literally MONTHS to get ready for decorating your house for Halloween. I know you might not be in the spirit yet but now is the time to find some bargains. In fact, I’ve assembled some handy tips to make sure that your head start pays off.
- Make sure you buy those spiderweb things whenever you see them. NO EXCEPTIONS. Those things will make anything look scary. Last year I stuck my neighbor to a tree with them and his sad moaning added a lot of spice to my yard display.
- Spend most of the summer trying to figure out a better way to stick the styrofoam gravestones into the ground. You won’t actually do anything, but it is fun to think of all the ways you could improve on the little spindly plastic things they give you.
- Go to Michael’s and all the other craft stores and buy their old Halloween junk for huge discounts. Then sell it on craigslist in September. Then use your profits to buy more spiderwebs.
- Halloween is on a Friday this year, so make sure you work out your strategy. Since the kids will go out on Friday you probably need to take the day off. You can’t bury yourself in the front yard between the time you get home and the time the kids start showing up. Get out there early. Dig deep!
Happy Halloween (in 7 months)!
