Making the most of your Halloween means decorating your home for the season and possibly investing in items that might serve you well year-round. While some people take decorating for the holiday more intensely than others, you can also take the hint-of-haunt approach and leave subtle clues around your home, like a skull-print accent pillow or black lace tablecloth. And as much as interior accessories take the front seat, you should never forget the exterior of your home; we’re talking doormats, lighting, inflatable skeletons – the works. But beware – shopping for Halloween can turn into a bit of an addiction. Happy haunting!
