5 Money Saving Halloween Costume Tips

Halloween is fast approaching, so how can you still get a great Halloween costume and save money? Well we have a few Halloween Costume tips that with a little effort save you money and scare off the high cost of Halloween

1. Last Years Halloween Costumes are on Clearance
What is the difference between a Transformers Bumblebee Costume and a Bumblebee 3-D costume, $15 to $20. Yes, last year's Halloween costumes and clearance items are often on sale so shop now and save. We found Witch, Fairy, Princess, Superheros and more kid's and infant Halloween costumes for under $10, with some really cute Halloween costumes up to 80% off! one thing to note is that sizes and quantities are limited, but it is worth a look to save.

2. Make Your Halloween Costumes
Growing up, we always made our Halloween costumes. Now I can't say I enjoyed creating a mask that involved placing strips of paper soaked in glue on my face, I will say we created great memories and unique Halloween masks. If you and your kids enjoy craft projects then consider making your own Halloween costume this year. Our advice is plan ahead, determine your supplies and plan to complete the project one week prior to Halloween. Why one week before Halloween? Well if the costume doesn't turn out as expected you can always purchase a costume. 

3. Incredible Daily Deals
Daily Deals are all the rage and once in a while you find a real bargain that you can take advantage of well this costume site offers Daily 5 Under $5 every Monday through Friday they list new items each day that are under $5. Items can include invitations, party supplies, costumes and decorations and the savings can be up to 90% off full price.

4. Used Costumes at Half the Price on Ebay.
Halloween costumes tend to worn on season and only to 1 or 2 parties and then placed on the shelf, often to be forgotten. Not only can you find used Halloween costumes at a great price but you can find new ones too. Plus if you need to earn a little cash, consider selling your gently used Halloween costumes. So consider Ebay for buying and selling Halloween costumes!

5. Halloween Costume Trade or Sale
Mom's create a Facebook thread or post to see if any of your friends are interested in a costume trade, then create a page where everyone could list costumes for trade or how much they would sell the costume for like $5 or $10. This is a great way to get something new, recycle your Halloween costumes, save money and works well for kids that are 5 years old and under.

Halloween may still be many weeks away, but that is no reason not to save on your Halloween costume. So plan ahead and pick up a Halloween bargain or create a fun memory with your family and friends.
