  1. Use Zip Ties

If you’re going to hang a lot of bright orange lights, invest in a package of zip ties. They come in a variety of sizes and colors that help them look more discrete. Plus, they’re cheap!

  1. All-Purpose Light Clips

Want to hang decorations on your gutters or siding? Buy all-purpose light clips — you can buy a 100 pack for about $10.

  1. Duct Tape The Cords Down

Sometimes, it's unavoidable to keep extension cords away from where the trick-or-treaters will be. If that’s the case with your decorations, use duct tape to secure the cords to the surface. This helps reduce the chance of someone tripping.

  1. Use A Timer

No one wants to wake up in the middle of the night to go turn off the lights and decorations. Save yourself the trip and put on an outside timer.

  1. Leverage Your Outlets

Don’t plug all of your lights into one single outlet. If you have more than three strings of lights together, it’s time to use another outlet.
