TILT--A Good Deal for a Good Cause

As I mentioned the other day, I have Halloween on my mind. Well, last night I scored a super deal on Halloween stuff that, as a bonus, helps a good cause. {I heard about this deal from That Went Well.}

St. Jude's Children's Hospital has an online gift shop. For whatever reason, Halloween stuff is already on clearance even though the holiday is almost two months away. Sweet! These plush treat bags are marked down from $9 to $5. I ordered the ghost for L (I let him choose) and the pumpkin for T (she wasn't interested in choosing).
Then I browsed around the site some more and found this spooky tree for $5, originally $20!
(After much deliberation, I chose not to buy the set of 6 ornaments for $5.)

And the best part, on top of the bargains, is that the profits from the sale go to the Children's Hospital. So I'm doing good. While shopping. A sale. Seriously, I love the work that St. Jude's does--they take on the toughest cases and all free of charge for the families. {According to wikipedia, "families never pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay."} In these tough economic times, I'm not as generous to charities as I should be, so I jumped at the chance to help St. Jude's while doing some Halloween shopping. Go check out their gift shop, they also have sales going on for Christmas stuff. Hurry, the Halloween stuff is going fast (sadly, the $5 costumes are already gone).

A good deal for a good cause, that's what I'm loving this Thursday. For more thing-loving-fun, head to the Diaper Diaries!

I love those treat bags, too- I think I would have caved and gotten the ornaments, too. ;)

As for your comment on my blog- I wish you could come to our play group- but it would involve a lot of airplanes, not to mention money, and some jet lag as a special treat. ;)
