It's that fun time of year again, when we embrace our inner kid and dress up to impress while knocking on random people's doors, visiting the local festivals and having our own little pumpkin parties with friends....oh wait, is that just me that does that? Who says the kids just get to dress up and have all the fun?
But if you thought that costume buying for the kids was expensive, just imagine what it's like trying to come up with an adult costume on a budget.
Have you already bought your Halloween costumes? I haven't yet. A slew of Halloween stores just popped into my neighborhood for the Halloween season and it's been driving me crazy because the only thing my kids want to do is go to these stores.
Within recent weeks, they've developed a fond interest in looking at these strange creatures that are either missing one eye, have blood all over them or on the floor with missing limbs.

I am the worst when it comes to buying my children's Halloween costumes on time. I usually wait until the day before, leaving me with almost no choices, damaged goods or a costume that's so risque that it makes me cringe to know that some people might be buying it for their child.
This year, I've decided to make some changes that will not only put me in control but also save me some money. Like anything in life, planning ahead makes all the difference in finding what you want for less or even nothing.
