As I’m preparing our Halloween costumes, I can’t help but think about last year. My 5 year old (4 at the time) really wanted us to all dress as Star Wars characters. He also insisted on wearing his Darth Vader pajamas from the Disney store. I bought these at a really cheap price thanks to Hip2Save! It was last minute and I didn’t want to spend a fortune.
Thankfully the local thrift store was open and it happened to be one of their half off days. I found a bear costume for our one year old and we changed it into an Ewok with a brown T-Shirt. I found a black pair of pants and a vest for my husband. Finally after searching the racks I found a tan vest for myself. I spent under $20 including the weapons and trick or treat bags at Dollar Tree. It wasn’t perfect but everyone knew who we were. We found everything else in our closets and it came together perfectly! Thank you for helping me think frugally at all times!
