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.
Putting aside the grotesque nature of Halloween, it's a day that kicks-off the holiday celebrations including Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and the New Year. So this week learn about saving money on Halloween goods, planning your holiday expenses and other money saving tips from our DealPros.
Save on All Things Halloween
Whether you are shopping at an outlet store or a regular retail store like Target, those Halloween costs can add up very quickly. If you take your kids on the shopping trip with you, you are definitely doomed (I know I am with my kids). Read these Tips to Save on Halloween Costumes, Candy and Party Decorations from My Frugal Adventures to make sure you don't go over budget.
A few years ago I was invited to a grown-up Halloween party. I spent weeks trying to figure out the perfect costume, one that would properly reflect my personality. Sure, I thought about Star Trek uniforms and Jedi robes, but those seemed kind of on-the-nose...and expensive.

The blogosphere was all up in arms last week about the episode of Toddlers and Tiaras which featured a pint-sized contestant dressed up like a hooker ala Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. As horrifying as that might be, I've found six similarly age-inappropriate get-ups geared towards young girls. These Halloween costumes are most definitely scary--but not in the traditional "Boo!" kind of way.
Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's…well, it's not quite Superman--but hey, being the Green Lantern is just about as cool, minus the dorky name. As a member of the Green Lantern Corps, you can wield the powers of your imagination to fly, harness destructive plasma beams to fight criminals, travel through time and space, utilize telepathy, become invisible and more. There's really no limit on what you can do as a Green Lantern. (Unless you're up against yellow objects. For some reason your powers are useless against them--go figure...)
But you can't do any of that awesome stuff, without--drum roll please--your Green Lantern Projection Ring! Just $12 from SuperHeroStuff.com for near-immortality...
