National Costume Swap Day For A Green Halloween
Believe it or not, there was a time when Halloween didn’t mean dumping out the piggy bank for decorations and costumes. You easily can plunk down $30 for your little princess or Ninja Avenger. And then what? That costume gets worn around the house until it finds its forever home wadded up at the bottom of the toy box.
You don’t need more clutter in your home, so consider going a little green this Halloween by participating in National Costume Swap Day, October 12.
It’s simple. Bring a gently-used Halloween costume and swap it for one that’s now brand new to you.
