Thrifty Thursday

Way, way back in history (back in April!) I was approached by my kids. They had decided what the PERFECT halloween costumes would be. Hunter (the video game obsessed) wanted to be Mario, Colton should be Luigi & Savannah wanted to be Princess Peach. After much thought, they even decided they would let the baby in on the fun ... he's going to be a toadstool. Which is fun, and cheap.
Except for the problem of finding similar colored overalls in a 2T & a 7/8 boys. I thought I had found a solution when a friend picked some up for me in Utah. Only, the waist on both ended up being the same width ... that's right ... the 7/8 & the 2/3 were the same waist size. LOL.
So, I am listing them on e-bay to recoup the money & then found some similar ones for $11 at the local thrift store. It works out to be cheaper this way anyways ... now to trim the women's overalls (size small) to a 7/8 length & fit ... wish me luck!


  1. Can't wait to see them in the finished costumes!!!!

  2. What an awesome Halloween idea! I can't wait to see your clan all decked out. :)
