Get yourself over to Wal-Mart right now! everything Halloween related is 90% off. This includes things like cupcake liners, cookie cutters, costumes, candy, etc. I went to the one on Estes and picked up the following:
12 Darth Vader costumes (he's always in style!!)
1 Super Mario Brothers, Mario costume
2 Pirate Baby costmes (girl, 4T)
1 Candy Corn costume
1 Buzz Lightyear costume
2 Fairy costumes
8 pairs of boys Halloween underwear (no one sees them!! 4 not pictured)
2 Wilton Holiday sugar mixes
3 Wilton orange sugar crystals
Regular Price: $412.70
I paid: $43.24
Now, what will I do with 12 Darth Vader costumes? I could outfit an entire army from the Dark Side. While that is interesting, I confess that I will do something a bit more money-minded. I intend to hold on to them and then sell them around Halloween next year. Last year I bought an Optimus Prime costume for Benjamin, and it turned out that he didn't like it. I put it. on eBay and hoped that I could make my $2 back. Someone bought it for $11!! Nice. So, we'll see.....
It may turn out that Benjamin will have the same costume until college. Or every birthday boy we know will get a Darth Vader costume. Or......
