October is one of the cheapest months of the year! Think about it.. throw together a homemade costume=free! Take your kids to a local festival=free! And then take them trick or treating (possibly more than once)= FREE CANDY!
The first year we had a baby we used a mouse costume our SIL gave us and created our costumes from things we had in the house. 3 Blind Mice- bada bing bada boom!
Halloween does not have to be expensive! Go out and famfreely!
