This Halloween, make sure your home is ready for all of those trick-or-treaters! Kids know only to go to homes that are well lit, so it is essential to have a welcoming porch and front door area. If you can, light up the walk way to your door as well, so that kids can see safely in the dark. Make sure that decorations are not in their way either, causing them to possibly trip. If you will not be home but plan on leaving a “take 1″ jar of candy, stick a light up over the candy and sign so that children can easily see it.

If you have a cluttered garage and only have just enough room for your car, here’s is a trick to make sure you don’t run into anything when you pull your car in.

Park your car in the exact spot you want it in your garage, then tie the other end of the string to the ceiling of your garage so that the ball hits your windshield. Next time you pull in, you’ll know when to stop without having to slowly inch your way in!
