I've received several emails requesting deals or more information on how to get Halloween costumes for less. As I said here, I've been searching high and low for costume deals, and I'm not coming up with much! Since most of you are parents to babies and toddlers, I truly believe that you can get by with simple costumes, although the plush penguin and monkey outfits are to-die-for cute!
My best piece of advice actually won't help you this year. It's go shopping after Halloween to score deals on costumes for next year. You can also find plenty of ideas for DIY Halloween costumes on this site!
Beyond that, I'm turning to you, readers. Do you have any advice for frugal Halloween costumes? If you do, please leave a comment to share with other readers.
