Swapping my Way to a Greener Halloween
|Our old costumes|
National Costume Swap Day happened on October 13, 2012 in the United States and Canada. The idea is simple: you bring one or more clean, used costumes. Then you trade them for someone else's clean, used costumes. It combines de-cluttering, re-using and saving money, which are some of my favourite things. Plus, it's a chance to get to know other people in your community.
Frugal, Sustainable and Fun

While National Costume Swap Day is over for 2012, now that you know about it you can keep it in mind for 2013. Or else you can organize your own informal swap. Empty out that old costume box that's gathering dust under your stairs, round up some friends, and prepare for Halloween the easy way. Or, if all else fails, refresh your costume box with some cool new pieces. It's green, it's affordable, and best of all it's fun.
