Before I had kids, I could usually spend a few weeks planning my Halloween costume and use a few hours the day of to get myself ready. I could wear uncomfortable shoes and stay up waaay too late. (My budget was certainly larger too!) Now, I spend the majority of my time planning the kids' costumes. The day is spent getting them ready, going back and forth between their school parades and parties, feeding them and the trick or treating until my back and legs hurt. Of course, I wouldn't want it any other way. But, there's no time for my costume to be complicated or uncomfortable. (That's not to say moms can't get elaborate at Halloween parties but the day of...it's rarely practical.) I compiled a list of cute reasonably priced costumes that will work while volunteering at school and trick or treating.
