Halloween on a Tiny Budget-How I do it!

There's nothing very wordless about this particular Wednesday. ;) Above, you'll see a picture of my youngest little man in his costume for this year. Some of you may be aware that this is a costume from last year. A few more of you may notice that it is from the Children's Place. But do any of you know what I paid for this cuteness?

$1.99!!! That's right, on Black Friday last year-just after midnight, no less-I got this costume for this year for less than $2! That's tough to beat in the deal department. With the original price marked at $22.50 on that costume, that's more than a 90% savings!

A few years ago, I also got a Wolverine costume for less than $5 (I want to say it was $3, but I can't be sure). How? I waited until after Halloween was over and hit up the stores that carried costumes. None of them want to keep them around so they put them on super discount to get rid of them! And that's the time to do some guessing and buy for next year!

Other great places for costumes are consignment shops. A friend of mine got an awesome dinosaur costume for just a few dollars a couple of years ago. Her boys love it!

Have a great Wednesday everyone!
