It's that time of year...
Pet costumes seem all the rage right now and not just for dogs; more than one cat is into hats these days.
Meanwhile, I spend my free time at local stores looking for pretty witches to add to my collection, cute (not scary) black cat images, and things that make me smile, like the picture above.
The Chicago Sun Times notes that
Witches are again the most popular costume for adults this Halloween, but vampires are chomping in with a close second because of their newfound popularity in books and movies..Saving Money on Halloween
You don't have to spend a lot of money on a costume this year. Your local Good Will has lots of great costumes on sale, especially for kids. Call a friend or neighbor and see if they have something you can borrow. Or, arrange for a costume swap. Get together with friends, all who agree bring a bunch of costume items to swap, loan and trade. Also, look around the house and see what you have there, already. Anyone can buy a costume; for many of us, half the fun is making it or putting it all together for ourselves.
