Slide 1: How to Save on Trendy Halloween Costumes While everyone else was wearing their plastic masks and store-bought superhero and princess outfits, you were stuck playing cop or soldier with your dad's old work uniform and a metal colander on your head. Or maybe your mom fancied herself a seamstress or craftswoman, and made Halloween costumes from scratch, which was tantamount to wearing hand-me-downs to school. Or perhaps after one of those embarrassing parent-induced costume situations, you decided to make your own with disastrous results. Now that you're a parent, you understand that your mom and dad did the best they could, and that your mom was actually pretty creative, even if it seemed like her costume ideas were crazy at the time. At the same time, you don't want to put your kids through any embarrassing experiences if you can avoid it. But times are tough, and Halloween costumes your child will wear once, and probably grow out of while they're trick-or-treating can be difficult to justify spending money on, or at least, spending full price. Luckily, you don't have to. Here are three ways you can send your child out on Halloween in a great costume, and still stick to your budget. Use a Coupon Code If you haven't already been shopping with coupon codes, also called discount codes, you've been missing out. Coupon codes will get you discounts on everything from clothing and school supplies to bigticket items like flat-screen televisions and furniture. Money saving tips are helpful in buying new items. Halloween costumes are important to kids and your child may be insistent on dressing up as something trendy. If this is the case, they may need a brand new costume. Because they are seasonal, and such specific items, it may be difficult to find a coupon code just for costumes. Buy a Used Costume Let's be honest. Most kids don't want to go trick-or-treating as the same character two years in a row, and even if they did, by the time the next Halloween rolls around, they'll have outgrown the costume you bought the year before. The good thing about this is, because costumes are usually only worn once, you can buy a used one that's still in excellent condition. You may find costumes at thrift stores or yard sales, but before you drive all over town looking for a Halloween costume, check out auction sites like eBay. These sites provide you all the costumes on cheaper prices which are helpful in following money saving tips. You'll be able to search for the specific character your child wants to be for Halloween, and have the costume shipped directly to your home. The best part is, you can put that costume right back up on eBay when your child is done with it, and make a little of your money back. http://thriftculturenow.com/
