Throwing a Halloween party is fun, and decorating your front porch to welcome the costumed kiddies is exciting, but it's also time-consuming, and it can get expensive quickly. You need the decorations, candies, snacks, and drinks—not to mention part of you is not so secretly trying to keep up with the Joneses. But here's the thing: Halloween decorations don't have to be a fleeting thing you buy each year and throw away.
