Friday tip for saving dough-ray-me
Here’s a great idea that proves once again that recycling and reusing is never scary. SwapCity, an online community that helps eco-friendly and budget-conscious Canadians go green through barter, is hosting an event at which you can trade your gently-used Halloween costume for someone else’s. So bring in your child's outgrown black cat accessories and pick up a superhero costume, or trade in tombstone lawn decorations for a new sound effects CD to play during trick-or-treating. The event takes place tomorrow (October 23) at GreenInstead (200 Spadina Avenue, 2nd Floor) from 2:30 to 3:30 pm. Swap Meet admission if $6 or $5 each if you bring a friend. Those under 16 get in free.
