  1. Great post! Great ideas!! I was just thinking the other day when we were out looking at costumes….isn’t it more fun to create something from what we have…also cheaper!!

    This is my first time on your blog (I am coming from the Equipping Godly Women link up) I look forward to checking out the rest of your blog!

  2. Thank you Beth for visiting

  3. The pumpkins are adorable. I am not much of a decorator when it comes to getting out something for every season, but I like the idea of taking them ‘decorated’ with when I visit friends. And pumpkins are always one of my favorite decorations. If you get the small pie pumpkins and use dry erase marker on them you can wipe away the color with a wash cloth when you are ready to cook them and then you have yummy pumpkin puree to bake with. It is phenomenal and very frugal. You could apply this idea to any holiday, just changing the drawing and perhaps the fruit. 🙂


  4. We went to a costume sale at a local theatre to find Halloween costumes. We aren’t really “Halloween” people, but it is fun to add the costumes to our dress-up stash.

    Visiting from Fellowship Friday!

  10. You know, I never thought of actually budgeting for Halloween, but it is totally one of those things that always costs way more than you expect. Thanks for the tips!

  11. Hi Megan, Thanks for visiting. I love budgeting so I budget for everything!

  12. Good tips! I find that making our own costumes sometimes costs MORE though. I like finding really cheap costumes on sale. That usually works out best for us 🙂 Thanks for linking on Equipping Godly Women Fellowship Fridays!

  13. I agree you have to be careful if you make your own not to over spend.
