SEGMENT 1 -- FRUGAL HALLOWEEN -- THRIFT STORES WITH NEW IN PACKAGE HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

I stopped by the Goodwill Thrift Store in Homewood today and spotted a ton of new in the package and new with tag costumes for pets, babies, toddlers, kids and adults. 

Most were scary but there were a number of cute costumes for those of you who aren't big on zombies, dracula and skeletons. 

There were lots of Disney costumes, Mario and more -- all of the costumes were from Target.  (Donated from last year's clearance) 

Prices were $5 or less.  

Some of the more complicated or larger adult costumes were $10.  Regular price $30 to $60.

I spotted one used Pottery Barn Kids costume for $2 -- it was a cookie is size 2T. 

Check your Goodwill, Salvation Army and others for Halloween costumes. Retailers donate clearance to thrift stores nationwide. 

SEGMENT 2   PUMPKIN INFUSED BROWNIES 2 INGREDIENTS

A cute cooking blog I found via Pinterest called Cookies & Cups shared a super easy recipe for Pumpkin Brownies.

Her 2 ingredient pumpkin brownies consist of basically brownie mix and pumpkin in a can. 

Not only is it a frugal recipe money wise it's also frugal calorie wise (except when you add the icing).

I tried it last night and it worked perfectly, just had to cook it a little longer than normal but other than that they were delicious. 

SEGMENT 3 

If you need a booster seat for your car Target will have a pretty good deal on their booster seat series by Graco Colorz starting SUNDAY.

The seat will be $14 (regular price $19.99) and the cover will be $1. 

Normally the cover is $5.99.  The idea is to select the pattern your child would like.  

Go here to see the product online. 

Remember the price starts Sunday -- Sept. 30.
