But there are 5 in particular that seem to be popular (if only for that one week) that I’d like to revisit in some time. And the reason is that I think these people are going to be doing some interesting things…..or not.

Halloween Costumes On A Student’s Budget
As the Halloween draws closer, it seems like you can’t walk a block without seeing a Halloween-themed window display or a temporary costume store. Unfortunately, if you come to those places looking for an interesting, decent-looking costume, you will probably have to shell out quite a bit of money. A trip to a major chain store would yield the same results. But don’t despair. It’s still possible to find creative costumes without putting too much strain on your wallet. You just need to know where to look. [Chicago Flame]
