Halloween is a festive time of year, giving us the rare chance to experience our creepier side and indulge in spooky sideshows. And, during this year, we explore our creativity by putting up horror decorations and fall themed ornamentations. But maybe this year you want to do it a little differently, maybe you really want to go all out and transform your home into a spooky pitstop that’s the envy of everyone! Even if not, maybe you want to approach your decoration process differently. No matter what, Mobile Attic has some tips for you!
And, as a bonus, you’ve got a secret in your arsenal: mobile storage pods. A mobile pod provides a variety of advantages you don’t get with traditional storage methods. And, as mentioned, it’s a great way to take your Halloween decorating to the next level.
Before you begin
It’s easy to go out and grab the standard decor associated with Halloween. But if you want to think outside the box, it’s good to plan out what you’d like to do. In other words, settle on a theme. Theme? But it isn’t all spooky? You might ask this, and while that’s true, what kind of horror? Something with skeletons? A graveyard? Black cats? A forest? Obviously, you don’t have to plan that far ahead but it’s fun getting together ideas and making it come to life.
For example, maybe you want to transform your front porch into a pirate setting or use those themed elements. If so, what would you need? What relevant decorations would add to this? Get creative and try something you’ve never done before.
That brings you to another question, supply and budget. Big projects and bigger ideas are great, but it is something you need to take special considerations for. Here’s a few tips to help.
Settle on your idea and theme
As mentioned, get the overall idea ready before you rush out and get a variety of decorations. You can be flexible, or try to find relevant decor specific to the idea. Consider searching for ideas online, taking a walk around nature, or just improvising and seeing what you come up with. Write down your ideas and then pick the one you like best!
Get a budget and figure out when you will get what
Next comes pricing everything out. For non-specific decorations, you’ll generally find them at your nearby stores, retailers, and supermarkets. But those decorations tend to be non-specialized, and maybe it’s not what you’re looking for. Check around online to see if you can find the ornaments or decoration specific to your idea.
Make sure you price them out and it’s enough for what you have in mind. For example, if you want themed lights, you don’t want to run short of them with only a single order. Again, that’s why budgetary considerations are important. If you’re not careful, you’ll burn a hole in your wallet, fast! Therefore, we recommend setting a maximum spending amount.
Did you know? You can save with Mobile Attic’s services.
As we get closer to recommending mobile storage pods, we also want to point out that mobile units are an inexpensive and practical alternative to traditional storage. When ordered, the unit arrives at your location of choice – like your home – and can be used for as long as necessary. That’s versus traditional options which typically have usage requirements and only provide single, limited spaces for your storage needs. Once more, for a Halloween decoration project, traditional options simply aren’t a good option.
Using mobile pods as part of your decorating project
You can take things a step further by using mobile pods as part of your decorative process. A mobile storage unit, for your own purposes, can operate like a miniature haunted house. You can put lights, decorations, and candy within the space. Or, you can use it as a set piece for additional decoration usage. Whatever you’re thinking, a mobile pod is a great additional option.
But, even if you don’t want to use a mobile pod for decorative purposes, it’s excellent for storage. That’s another consideration you may forget about when setting up Halloween ornaments: where they’ll go. Decorations of any kind have a habit of quickly taking up excess space, and you only realize this when you’re all out. With insufficient storage, clutter builds up and so does disorganization, and suddenly your big Halloween idea has transformed into a cluttered mess.
The less time you’re spending fumbling with power cables or finding the right spot to store things, the more you can have fun focusing on your project. Therefore, a mobile storage pod is great for this. If you don’t have the available space to store decorations, you can safely do so with a mobile pod.
Offered by Mobile Attic, these storage pods come in a variety of sizes. You can rent as many as needed and have it arrive at your location of choice. You won’t need to rent trucks or need special equipment, as this is taken care of on our side. Once you have it, you can store your Halloween decorations for organizational purposes. This is great if you have larger decoration variants too. That allows you to plan for creative projects, as normally you might not have the space for them. But with a mobile pod, anything is possible.
Once you’re finished, professional crews will return to retrieve the pod(s) without any extra cost or labor on your part. It’s as easy as picking a location and putting your storage worries aside.
So, if you want to elevate your Halloween this year with brand new decorations, themes, and even events, consider mobile storage pods. Mobile Attic offers a variety of services and is happy to provide any unit for your specific need.
