What I Learned - 2015

Didn't see a thread dedicated to this yet. So I'll start.

1. Rusty old chains make wonderful wind tie-downs! I draped them over my tombstones and crisscrossed them over coffins to keep the wind from destroying my lighter props. Not only did it work, but the look was perfect... especially over the coffins! I'll be doing this from now on. MUCH easier than tying off to stakes and super fast to take down.

2. I will finally get a better system in place for organization. While my stuff is all back inside- it is not yet put away. I vow to organize as I put away and inventory everything as I go. I really see how a huge plan-ahead is invaluable. Thanks to all who've suggested organizing tips throughout the year. Muuuaaah!

What was your take-away from 2015 Halloween?

I learned that I don't have to kill myself putting out tons of stuff when some hay bales with all my fake pumpkins will do. Granted I think I've got 50+ fakekins now (with some pumpkins yet to carve) but still, I don't need the cemetery (the wind doesn't like it much anyway), the figures, the groundbreakers, Hallowindow, etc.

I grabbed some of those window silhouettes, put those on the BR windows, & didn't do Hallowindow this year at all. I don't miss the projector being in the way either.
That's funny - I always say the same thing, "we could just do nothing but jacks and no one would notice."
