Play Like It Is 1975

From Disney to Melissa & Doug, there are countless ways for parents and grandparents to spend money on "dress up" outfits for kids.  Here in our frugal home, we revert to 1970s dress up.  Find a basket of winter wear, throw in a pair of boots 5 sizes too big, and add a dash of something from your room.  Bam, you have a butterfly ninja master.  No cost required.  Imagination stimulated.  And parents laughing in the kitchen. That my friends, is the upside of frugal life.

  1. Great minds must think alike. I'm a huge fan of incorporating winter wear into dress-up play too:) More on that, and a link to your helpful post above, here: http://hintmama.com/2014/06/27/todays-hint-use-these-accessories-for-frugal-dress-up-play/
