Super Organizing The Halloween Stuff

First determine how much you have . The worst thing you can do is buy organizing products and none of them work for what you are trying to store; or you buy not enough or too much. Also You don’t want to waste money. You want to assess what you have and try to buy for it, and you want to use the products the correct way.

 

Bins- the bins I use can be found at The Container Store, Big Lots, and Target. Some are called the Halloween TOTES. I LIKE corresponding colors to represent the season: Orange for halloween, Brown for fall or thanksgiving, etc.

 

Always group items together. It should make sense.

Ziploc bags/markers/labels are your best friend Great for putting together smaller items such as push pins and clips and cords.

Clear bags are the best. You can see what you have. Push the air out packs easier

Easy to reach . Everything stays in place.

Roll costumes. Clothes pack better that way . Put accessories that go with costume, if you can roll it inside or at least next to it. Rolling can also prevent wrinkling.

 

Donate old costumes to schools or churches or after school programs who have drama departments

 

If you don’t have kids that will come after the one who wore the costume, don’t keep it.

If you can store bins in the order of the holidays and seasons of the year. Easier to grab and rotates easily.

Easy to reach . Everything stays in place

Things That Scare Me: The Organizing Edition!!!

95f1b-halloween-candy-1

In honor of Halloween, these are things that scare me:

  1. An overstuffed medicine cabinet. I don’t like things falling out at me.
  2. Clutter under a bed. Reaching underneath anything I can’t clearly see, scares me.
  3. Super cluttered walls. I get claustrophobic.
  4. Shoes hanging on the back of doors.
  5. Unorganized files. I get scared when I can’t find something!

Super Halloween Tip: How To Store Halloween Costumes

Image result for garment bags

 

I know Halloween hasn’t passed yet but I have a tip to help you after the season and day are over. Many of my clients want to keep their costumes that they may wear again for a function another time of the year or for a friend to borrow. Many costumes are reusable.especially kids ones that you may be able to pass into the younger children.

The goal is not to add clutter and stay organized. So my suggestion is to get garment bags!! They don’t have to be expensive ones.I would get kids size one for kids and adult size for you . You can put all of them on hangers and hang them in there.It keeps everything in one place! You can store them in the back of the closet,neat and hung up and they are slender. Or hang them up in the garage. Label the outside of the garment bag so you know what it is. AND you are done!!

Be safe out there and have fun!!

50_Stylish_-Halloween-House__-Interior_-Decorating_Ideas__03

Its that time of the year. The first big holiday of the fall-winter season. Halloween is the wackiest of them all. When I used to ive in San Francisco, it seemed like the WHOLE city got into the spirit. From the BART operators to politicians and everyone in between. IT was a lot of fun. Of course everyone please enjoy the day and be careful out there!

What I Learned-The Top Halloween Costumes

805483

The kids are grown and its been years since I’ve dressed up for Halloween. I DO have kids in my life and friends going to parties, so I was curious to what folks were buying. I am reading in the USA Today  that this is a BILLIONS dollar business!!! I feel like i’ve seen more Halloween “pop-up” shops everywhere! AND Earlier! So according to the National Retail Federation here are the top-selling costumes:

Top Children Costumes

  1. Princess
  2. Animal
  3. Spider-Man
  4. ‘Frozen’ Character
  5. Action/Super Hero
  6. Batman Character
  7. Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle
  8. Witch
  9. Pirate
  10. Superman

It’s nice to see some of the staples from when I was kid like Pirate and Witch. What a trip to see 90s fave Ninja Turtles return to the list!

Top Adult Costumes

  1. Witch
  2. Animal
  3. Batman Character
  4. Pirate
  5. Zombie
  6. Vampire
  7. Doctor/Nurse
  8. Action/Super Hero
  9. Princess
  10. Wench/tart/vixen

This list makes me a little sad. Not much imagination. I sure for many adults they have to be conservative in dress because they are at work or with the kids. Batman is popular with both groups!

I encourage everyone to be creative and fun with their costumes! Happy fun and be safe!
