25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable.

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Kids: The Ultimate Girly Grab Bag

Shop Valentine's Day Plush
I used to get my girls a Valentine's Day basket each year, similar to an Easter basket, filled with small Valentine's Day items like craft supplies, hair accessories, and the obligatory Valentine's Day stuffed animal. This year I'm doing something similar only with a pink canvas tote in place of the basket. All those cheap holiday tubs and baskets end up wasting space and not being of any real use, but a sturdy reusable tote bag, that I know my girls will use. I picked up two pink canvas bags from the crafts store and filled each with their favorite girly things - nail polish, hair clips, candy hearts, bracelets, crafts supplies, and a stuffed animal.

You don't have to spend a lot, a trip to the dollar store or drug store can help you fill their Valentine's Day bags with plenty of girly gifts. I often purchase holiday party favors that come with several in a pack, like mini notepads. With small items like those, you don't have to worry about price vs. quality since the kids will use them up quickly anyway. I also like to save money by getting them things they always need anyway, like more craft supplies. It's a perfectly affordable way for me to make Valentine's Day special for my girls.
