Find out what your child wants to be for Halloween, then do a search for the costume online at Ebay.com or Craigslist.org. Once your child see's the costume he/she likes, place your bid or Email the seller to try it on. I did this one year...and saved $100 by doing so! The SAME costumes I purchased on Ebay.com, were sold at the Halloween Superstore near my house. The brand new one's at the Halloween Superstore were $30-40 each, but I was able to get mine for an average of $15 each, even after shipping. The only catch is that the costumes are usually worn once, but most sellers on Ebay keep their stuff in excellent, brand new condition. Just read the details carefully before placing your bid....just to make sure it's still in great condition. Also don't forget to hand wash it prior to your child wearing it!

Doing this will save you a ton of money if you have as many kids as I do! I can easily spend $200 at the Halloween Superstore just on costumes and accessories!

Have a fun and safe Halloween!

Make sure to check the candy that they get! Throw out all candy that is opened or looks tampered with!
