“Hee Hee Hee Heeeee…..”
With all of these bone chilling sounds we’ve heard this Halloween, who actually survived? I came across the regular zombies, ghosts and witches, but I seen a few Hannah Montanas and Avatars also. There were so many costumes that I didn’t even realize they made. I seen the whoopee cushion and the peace sign. These were a few of the peculiar ones. I ask you again, who survived?
I know you physically survived, but did your wallet survive. I know Halloween only comes around once a year, however, the gifts you buy and receive at Christmas, can at least be used more than once. The whoopee cushion I spoke about earlier, broke his wallet by $80.00. Now when is he ever going to be a giant whoopee cushion again.
I toured the many popular stores in search of children costumes. K-Mart had a sale of 70% off which dropped the average price down between $15.00 – $20.00. Wal-Mart had no sale and average costume price was $17.00. Most of these costumes don’t even look like they can hold up past Halloween. I believe consumers would love to possible use costumes for another Halloween or even donate. Not possible with cheap material and sleepy seamstress.
Being the mother of three, my bill would’ve ran me about $60.00. My bill actually ran me $2.00 for two tubes of face paint at Wal-Mart. I scrounged a few things together at home to make the costumes and then using the face paint to make zombie skin and bloodied face for the cat. The children loved the costumes and so did everyone else.
I hope others were able to survive the Halloween, spend your money, frenzy, too. I seen more than a few suckers out there who probably went hungry for the rest of the week. See you next, Halloween.
