4 Tips to Save on Holloween Costumes!

  1. DIY Costumes: Some of my favorite costumes were homemade, and all of my 7-year-old son’s costumes have been homemade. You don’t have to shop the Halloween stores to get a great costume! We’ve used everything from old boxes and wrapping paper, to old pillowcases! Check out this list of 50+ Last Minute DIY Costumes Ideas.
  2. Costume swaps: It doesn’t take much to organize a costume swap with friends, parents from school, the neighborhood, or any local group! Just set up an event on Facebook and remind folks that admission is a costume to trade. You can even collect donations ahead of time for a larger variety of options. You can also give participants a ticket for every costume they donate which are redeemable for costumes on the day of the event. Donate leftover costumes to local organizations.
  3. 2nd Hand, Thrift and Consignment Stores: From vintage clothing, materials and authentic costumes you can find everything you need for WAY less than full price! Get creative! Here’s 1,109 of the Best Costumes on Pinterest!
  4. Costume Game: If you’ve waited until the absolute LAST possible minute this is for you! Imagine a Halloween Costume Fashion Show. Let the kids raid their dress-up box, & normal clothes as well as other household objects to create wacky costumes. Make sure duct tape and safety pins are available! You can even film your child model their creations!
