October's here and it's time! Begin planning Halloween costumes and seasonal celebrations now.
Plan Halloween Costumes
If family members (young or young-at-heart) will dress in costume for Halloween, harvest festivals or book character parties, it's time to put on the thinking caps.
Decide on Halloween costumes early to be sure you can complete sewing jobs or find just the right accessories in good time for the celebration.
Prepare for Seasonal Celebrations
Grab the family calendar, and note any upcoming events or celebrations.
Whether it's preparing treats for classroom parties, volunteering for a neighborhood festival, or organizing family fun like "BOO-ing" the neighbors, note commitments now. Add needed materials to a shopping list, and get organized ... for October fun!
Decide in advance how many items you'll keep, to pare down multiples, whether they're pens, DVDs or items of clothing. If you know you'll keep three sweater sets, zero in on your three favorites, then consign the leftovers to the donations box. Pick a number to cut the clutter!
