Oh No! It’s happening! I’m starting to feel the Halloween excitement! And it’s ONLY August! This is not good! I can’t believe everyone putting our Halloween and Christmas decorations in the stores….but it’s catchy! Which is probably why they put it out so early! Between seeing the decor out, getting media releases and product review request for Halloween costumes, and my kids seeing the decorations in the store asking if it’s almost time to go Trick or Treating – it’s a lost cause! Even the Crayola store has put out their super cute crayon costumes!! Has anyone ever had one of these?? They look SO cute! I just got some info from Carter’s today and they have the cutest cow and ladybug costumes!! With all of these adorable costumes around you could really drop a LOT of money!! So here are a few ideas to save money at Halloween on costumes….

1. Make Your Own Costume– We used to be ghosts, hippies, rock stars, clowns, and anything else creative we could think of without needing to sew anything. Thrift stores are great for creating old costumes!
2. Swap Costumes with a Friend – Have friends with kids around the same age? Swap costumes! 
3. Buy Your Costumes the Year Before. I ALWAYS buy my Halloween costumes after Halloween for the next year (usually at Old Navy – they are great quality). If I’m not sure what size – I buy both because it’s still cheaper than buying one at full price. I have a whole slew of costumes from birth – 5T for my kids! 
4. Attend a Harvest Festival instead. Many churches and organization have Halloween or “harvest” festivals the night of where you don’t have to dress up. They are typically like mini-carnivals.
