I do volunteer work in a local thrift shop. Do check in your local shop for Halloween costumes. As they are a one time a year item, there is no sense in paying a lot for the children's outfit. You will find really nice costumes for $1.00 and up.

We needed to get several costumes worth of clothing and extras but didn't have the budget to get store bought costumes or buy them new. So we found a Goodwill sorting and donation center near us.
Use websites like eBay to find and save money on Halloween costumes for your children. You can buy last year's costumes for much less than a new one.
I love to shop at thrift stores and yard sales. A few summers ago I found blowup costumes that were adorable. They were still in the box and I payed a buck and a half for each. I tossed em in the closet and four months later for Halloween I remembered I had them.
Don't buy a new costume for you or your children this Halloween. Buying Halloween costumes on eBay can save you a lot of money.
