|Family Shot: Halloween 2012|

|J as a Monster for Halloween 2012|
I crafted almost exclusively using supplies that I already own, forgoing Papertrey Ink's product release on the 15th. That's a HUGE sacrifice people, especially with the holidays sneaking up on us as fast as they always do. I was still able to make my son's Halloween costume and stick to budget. This year he was a monster. I spent a total of $9 ($7 on the sweatshirt and $2 on the ping pong balls), everything else for his costume came from my craft supplies already on hand. I'd say the costume was a success and I'm super happy he decided against going as a frog, I had no idea how I was going to make that happen.

I'm happy we did this challenge. I feel a little better going into this holiday season of spending with the previous month of "no spend" behind us. This may or may not become an annual event for us. I have almost a whole year to figure that out.
