Now that I can scratch Halloween off the to-do list, back to more pressing matters, like school shopping.
Sunday, August 7, 2011
Last I checked, it wasn't even the middle of August yet, so I was surprised to find that those overachievers at my local Goodwill have two full isles of Halloween stuff out already. Halloween isn't my favorite holiday so I would normally bypass all of the skulls and witches caps until at least the beginning of October, but I had had a mimosa at breakfast, I was in a good mood, so what the heck? I'm so glad I did because nestled amongst the various snagged up Disney Princess gowns was a Mario costume just the right size for the Mario lover in our house. She really wanted one last Halloween but I just couldn't justify the cost. (I have a hard time parting with my money when it comes to items that will only be used once or twice.)And the $6.99 I paid is much more reasonable than the $34-$50 I've seen around the internet.
