Goblins to Goblets: Let Goodwill Help You with Your Holiday Décor Swap!

November is here, which means the ghosts and ghouls have finished their frights, and now it’s time to usher in the warmth of turkeys and togetherness.

But before you swap your holiday décor, be sure to have a plan, or else you’ll end up with a cornucopia of confusion next year!

Take Stock of Storage Space

Before you start packing up your Halloween decorations, clear the way for storage. Keep in mind how much space you have available, and choose how you’ll make the best use of the room you have. For example, while most items will likely fit in clear totes, remember which items had to be hung or needed an unusually tall or wide place in order to be tucked away for next year.

Don’t forget any new items you may have added to your holiday décor this year! You just might need more places to put things this season.

Declutter BEFORE You Store

If you have decorations that either didn’t make the cut for Halloween this year or some that you just don’t love anymore, don’t store them. You’ll just create a mess for yourself next season.

As you’re packing up your favorite Frankenstein to make way for Thanksgiving, start a pile for donating to Goodwill. That way you’ll save shelf space and have a clean slate next October.

Ohio Valley Goodwill has donation centers located throughout the Cincinnati area, and it’s simple to donate. Just place your gently used Halloween décor in boxes or bags, and drop them off!

You’ll be making a difference in your community, and we’ll even provide you with a receipt for your tax-deductible contribution.

Who knew you could change lives for the better just by donating a few old Halloween decorations? We did!
