Ok, posting every day is a challenge. I thought I might answer some questions that have gone unanswered in my comments. Exciting, eh? LOL
My Halloween pancakes were made with regular old cookie cutters. I tried pouring the batter into them in the skillet, but it was easier to just make regular pancakes and them cut out the shapes after the fact. (Plus, then I got to eat the scraps. Yummy.)
Jack's Halloween costume came from Old Navy. Yes, I sew a lot. BUT, I do not make clothes. Every time I have tried I end up disappointed and/or extremely frustrated. Clothes are clearly meant to come Old Navy.
The Halloween Play-doh were a huge pack of mini tubs from Costco.
The Halloween garlands came from Oriental Trading Company. Let them send their catalogues, their website is overwhelming!
Would I recommend the book Thrift Score? Well, I checked it out from the library, and read the whole thing in one day. It is interesting, but mostly filled with ideas on how to use things you can find in thrift stores, not really new information about thrifting per se.
