Save Money Monday: Halloween costumes and decorations on a budget

Halloween is just around the corner. Two weeks from today, it will be time for costumes, candy and scary movies. This edition of Save Money Monday is dedicated to helping you get Halloween costumes and decorations on a budget.

The key to top-notch affordable Halloween costumes is often face paint.

Our friends over at Just Married With Coupons have an excellent recipe for making face paint at home to save even more money, or you can get it at any local party supply store.


Check out PennySaverUSA.com's Halloween section.

PennySaverUSA staffer Elizabeth came up with one of the better zombie Halloween costumes you’ll ever see just by using some killer face paint. See the photo at the right. The whole get-up cost her less than $10.

Another way to Save Money Monday on Halloween costumes and decorations is by purchasing used items. The perfect place to do that is through PennySaverUSA.com’s Halloween online classifieds section or by going garage sale hunting using PennySaverUSA’s new mobile garage sale app MOGASA on your iPhone (download it now).

If you prefer the new stuff, but don’t want to spend a fortune, there are plenty of online discount stores like Costume Kingdom or Halloween Express that sell Halloween costumes and decorations.

Perhaps the easiest way to plan phenomenal Halloween costumes and decorations is simply to use things you already own. Those old sheets you don’t know what to do with? They could make a riveting ghost. That scrap paper you have lying around? It could make some awesome decorations.

Once you’ve got your Halloween costumes all set, don’t forget to enter our Co$tume Bash for Cash online photo contest for a chance to win $300!
