View Full Version : suggestion for "garbage"

I hope professional haunters won't hate me for making this suggestion.

In a few haunts I have seen, there is a lot of garbage that could be used or useful to home haunters. If you professionals could make a pile or container of garbage (broken 2x4s, torn masks, busted fogger, clipped extension cords, etc.), that's gold to home haunters.

Hell, if you have after the season mess, ask a home haunter and they will remove "garbage" for free.

*Don't think of home haunters as future competitors. Most of them just want to scare the kids on Halloween.

For maybe 6 years Before I ever bought a stick of lumber. I have the technology to saw off rot, re-size boards. I also grind off rust and weld steel. (Steel holds better than wood and is still there the morning after!)

Garbage? That was a prop man! LOL I have this argument with my son all the time, because I am always tearing down old stuff and saving the wood, screws, and anything else I can re-use, while he wants to throw it away and buy new stuff. Of course, using my money! We save everything and find ways to use scraps rather than buy new stuff as much as we can.
