Procrastination DOES Pay Off (Sometimes!)

advertisement

I admit - I am not a huge Halloween fan <gasp!>

I don't go to an annual costume party, I don't decorate the house, and I definitely don't buy Halloween merchandise. I do, however, keep the porch light on & greet Trick-or-Treaters with candy. For my home, that's festive enough!

I grew up making my own Halloween costume, we never had fancy store-bought costumes ready to wear. I was a janitor in high school - for Halloween, that is. I had a friend who came as mashed potatoes & his buddy joined him as the gravy. I went through a glamour phase, a grunge phase, a high maintence trendy phase...and with every phase came a new creative costume.

But enough about me...for now.

If you are in the market for a children's Halloween costume - RUN to The Children's Place! I dropped in with a friend of mine (pictured - Laura!) and the Halloween costumes were discounted to $1.99 each! Use this 20% off coupon and that makes them $1.59 each! I didn't go nuts - I only bought a few...or maybe 7. How could I not?

They had sizes 0-6 months all the way up to size 6!
