Pay it Forward with Spirit Halloween Shops

*I was sent a giftcard to pick up a few Halloween themed items in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own and are honest!


We love dressing up and having fun on Halloween in our house! We make a big deal about it being a time to have fun and visit with friends and family. My girls have had their costumes picked out for a few months, but Steve and I didn’t…until yesterday when I shopped at Spirit Halloween! Here is what we picked out! Easy and fun!

Until this year, I didn’t know there were ways for my kids to give back during this holiday. We do donate candy to various places, but this is something bigger! Maybe you didn’t know either. Have you heard about Spirit Halloween’s philanthropic Spirit of Children program? The Spirit of Children program brings fun and funding to hospitals across the country for children who otherwise would not be able to celebrate Halloween. To date, Spirit of Children has raised more than $359,093 for Children’s Medical Center, which has funded a variety of resources for the hospital including music and art therapy programs, aid in purchasing games and toys for patients, and assistance in funding additional services such as hospital playgrounds, so kids can leave their room and spend time with their peers. Hospitals in the Dallas area that will benefit from the funds raised include Children’s Medical Center.

When visiting a Spirit Halloween location, you can donate as little as $1. This year Spirit of Children’s goal is to raise $5.2 million nationally, bringing its total contribution to $21 million.

Huge Fall Savings at Just Between Friends Dallas

I was invited to shop the JBF Dallas sale and post about my awesome finds. All opinions are my own and are honest.


I love a good deal! I really love a good deal on consumables…you know those things that won’t be in our homes for very long! My kids are growing and changing on a daily basis and keeping them in adorable clothes that don’t cost a fortune is something that I pride myself in! I love when they look adorable and I know it didn’t cost me an arm and a leg.

This is one of the main reasons that I love Just Between Friends so much! Currently JBF Dallas is going on! It is open to the public tomorrow and it’s HUGE! Over 750 people are consigning their kids gently used clothes, toys, and equipment!

I got to go to the presale today and I was specifically looking for Halloween costumes for my girls. I just can NOT pay a ton for a costume for my kids to wear for ONE night! JBF Dallas had tons of choices and we ended up with with some great deals! I paid $17 total for all three of my kids costumes! Chloe is going to be Spidergirl, Emma is going to be a flapper girl, and Maci is going to be a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader! She is in LOVE with her costume!

I also scored a great deal on a Razer Ripstick that Chloe has been wanting. I paid just $15 and it’s selling for over $73 shipped on Amazon. I wish I had the ability to put it up and save it for Christmas…but truth be told, I want to try it out too! :)

This sale is HUGE! Massive! Seriously! Here is a short video I did to give you an idea of what to expect!


Stop in this weekend and check it out…you’ll leave with some awesome deals! They even have a half priced sale on Sunday! JBF Dallas is located at 1700 Rodeo Dr, Mesquite, TX 75149
