It’s hard to believe that it’s almost Halloween. Personally, I love Halloween, namely because I really enjoy checking out the costumes. My son’s school even has a Halloween Parade of DIY costumes only; it has been a tradition since before my husband attended the same elementary school (a very long time ago). Most of the discussions about Halloween safety surround costume safety or checking candy; most people don’t even think about trying to make their home safer during Halloween. Unfortunately, we live in a litigious society, and if someone is injured on your property, you might not be protected with your current homeowners insurance plan. Luckily there are insurance plans available for you to research online, for example, if you are looking for a specific home insurance policy, you may want to visit somewhere like Homeownersinsurancecover.net to find the right policy that covers all your needs. A friend of mine did this for her house, ensuring that her policy covered her home from floods, storms and other disasters that could affect her property. She even looked up a water damage adjuster firm so that in the event her home did suffer water damage that she would get the maximum amount of compensation. It got me thinking about different tips that could help my family around Halloween. So, today I’ve partnered with Erie Insurance to share a some practical Halloween safety tips for your home and how you can check your policy to ensure that you’re properly covered in the event of an accident.

Have you found the perfect bag for Halloween yet? I wasn’t able to find anything that I liked enough to purchase, so I decide to make one. I created this No Tricks Just Treats DIY Halloween Bag that could be used as a book bag, to carry party supplies, and trick-or-treating. We weren’t waiting until Halloween to fill our treat bags; I found some great┬ávariety candy bags with an assortment of our favorite Hershey’s products in each.

Extra Halloween candy? Consider Ronald McDonald House

Trick or treaters around Kentucky were sorely disappointed by the weather last night. It was cold, windy, and rainy; it eventually snowed in the wee hours of the morning. People were complaining about having tons of candy and no trick or treaters. My sweet friend is the Executive Director for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Bluegrass; she reminded me that Ronald McDonald House happily accepts candy donations.
