I'd bet there's a fair percentage of us who are still scrambling for Halloween costumes. Here's Jill's solution:
If you don't want to spend much and don't have time or creativity to make a costume, consider staging a costume swap with friends who have kids. Bring a pile of dress ups and used costumes and swap them around. We got a pair of matching dinosaurs last year and I'm passing them on for something else this year. I keep some around for dress ups year-round.
