How Can I Save Money But Have A Happy Halloween?

Costumes

  • Use some of your old clothes or dress clothes you’ll never wear again to create a costume. Make a cheap outfit from an old bridesmaid dress or one of your teenager’s practice jerseys without busting your budget. If you don’t have any clothes that work, check with your friends or family to see what they might have in the back of their closets or drawers.
  • Most communities have consignment or thrift stores with used clothes you could make into costumes. Many even have donated costumes this time of year.
  • Borrow purchased costumes from friends, family, or neighbors. Send a group text, put up a Facebook post, or post in your Nextdoor group that you’re looking for a costume for yourself or your kids. You might even consider hosting a costume exchange for little ones.
  • Wear the same costume you wore last year. Even though you might not surprise anyone by wearing that mask again, it’ll keep money in your pocket!
