Where did September go?
Holy Crayola! I just realized this morning that tomorrow is October! I am so behind, it is not even funny. Usually by now I have the kid's Halloween costumes started, Christmas card list done, my Christmas gift list done, and my Christmas letter started. I haven't done any of these things yet! Yes, I am insane and I make the kids' Halloween costumes, but it saves a ton of money in the long run, and they are much cuter and warmer than if we buy them. I was shopping online, and found that if I buy the costumes we want this year, I will spend $265 on costumes. My goal this year is to keep Halloween within a $50 budget. This includes costumes, candy, trick-or-treat buckets for the boys, and pumpkins. This would have been a lot easier if I had gotten a head start, but I will have to be a little more creative to accomplish it this year. I'll keep you posted!
