Great Costume Deals

This year my son decided that even he is sick of being Spiderman for Halloween. Fine with me, except that he picked this Gymboree costume:



$12.95 + $34.75 = WAY more money that I would ever spend on a Halloween costume


After finding a 20% coupon in October's Parenting magazine (a free subscription, of course!), I decided to check out the costume in the store again. Lo and behold, the costumes were marked down! The new number sentence was this:

$4.99 + $22.49 = Still more than I wanted to pay

BUT

$4.99 + $22.49 - 20% ($5.50) = a doable $21.98

I also earned $25 in Gymbucks because my total purchase ended up being over $50. (Btw, all the prices include tax.)


My toddler daughter decided that she wants to be Tinkerbell. I think i could have steered her in other directions, but I saw this adorable Tinkerbell outfit at BRU and knew it was just perfect for her.

The price? $24.99. NOT Perfect. Even though I knew that she would get lots of wear out of it - Disney characters show up in our house often - I didn't want to pay that much. So, I waited. And as always, Angie at Baby Cheapskate came through yesterday with a coupon for 30% off any shoe and appareal purchase! Some of her readers confirmed that costumes were eligible, and they were on sale for 20% off.

Of course, I headed to BRU right away and got the perfect Tinkerbell costume for the awesome price of $13.99! Both Mommy and daughter were extremely happy!

Oh, and I got this too for the same price.



(Every girl needs a witch costume, right?)
