Use a high powered box fan to clear the leaves away without having to rake or stuff them in a bag. This saves you more time and energy needed for other activities.

2. Dry your Wet Jacket with Newspapers

After braving the chilly and rainy fall weather, dry your wet jacket with old newspapers to reduce wet spills and puddles at home. You can also use them on your shoes or boots when you arrive back from work, school or social outings.

3. Save the Pumpkins

To ensure your pumpkins are preserved as the staple Halloween prop, spray them with a unique mix of bleach and water. This keeps them orange and plump before the end of October.

4. Make your own Fall Potpourri
