One Mom’s Brilliant Post-Halloween Idea

see more by


I was at a friend’s one-year-old birthday party last Sunday (the day after Halloween) and was chatting with one of the moms there.  She had the most brilliant idea.   When I hear these types of ideas,  I immediately think “blog material!!”

She bought a whole bunch of costumes at post-Halloween clearance prices and was going to fill a dress-up box with all sorts of costumes to give to her son for Christmas.

My 3-year-old daughter loves to play dress-up and do lots of pretend play.     Forget all the toys with bells and whistles.   Give her a princess costume and some Fancy Nancy dress-up shoes and she can entertain herself for hours.

I thought “what a perfect Christmas gift this would be!”  Most of the stores now have major liquidation going on to get rid of their costume inventory.   It’s the perfect time to get a bunch of fun dress-up stuff and have a serious supply of entertaining items for the  New Year.

Moms have the greatest ideas – don’t they?  Thanks for the inspiration!!!
