Thrifty Thursday

Halloween is becoming more and more popular here in the Blue Mountains.

Our little subdivision has been practising the tradition for a number of years now.

For some reason I have been feeling the need to be thrifty of late, perhaps there's a bit of anxiety behind this as Mr HP nears retirement.

My health has been an issue too and I'm not feeling motivated to do extraordinary things.

But not wanting to disappoint, I made an effort to be prepared for the children in the neighbourhood.

These little packages took me less than a morning to complete.

And here's where the thriftiness comes in;
these little packages cost me less $1 each to fill, and the packaging and crafty bits all came from my stash of scrap paper and craft items.
