    1. A small, odorless garbage guard pod you can attach to the underside of your indoor or outdoor trash lid to kill those annoying flies that just love to hover in and around your can while *also* preventing new insects from coming around. Now you can finally hang outside without spending the entire time swatting at flying intruders invited over by your apparently delicious-smelling trash.

    2. A fall-inspired bowling game everyone will love, even if it's a lil' ~corny~. It'll occupy the kids while you chill on the patio, but don't underestimate how much adults will enjoy it too! Plus, it also doubles as a fun Halloween decoration 🎃
