Since I’ve been reading More Than Just Making It and we had been chatting about finances over at my other page, I thought I would share a money-saving tip with you here.
It’s no surprise to you all that I’m not a shopper. I’m also not huge on a certain dress-up holiday. It was a challenge for me every year, BUT I have found my saving grace in this area – the Facebook buy/sell group that I run!
Last year I had a forest fairy and a Greek goddess or something like that – for just $10…TOTAL!
This year I sold that forest fairy costume. It was only worn 2 times for less than a few hours total. So if I do my math correctly, I spent $1 for the costume.
AND since I’m trying to think ahead for these types of things, I already have one costume for this year…a little spendier at $7, but definitely less than a new costume for more $$$.
What money-saving tips do you have when it comes to holidays and special occasions?
