(VIDEO) 5 Ways to Pick an Affordable Halloween Costume Your Toddler Will Love

I don’t consider myself a frugal mom, but I don’t spend a lot of money on holidays like Halloween and Christmas since our son is just two years old. Before he gets old enough to get caught up in the hype, I’d rather save my money.

4 Tips for Big Savings and Cash Back on Amazon #PrimeDay #PrimeDay2020

COVID-19 shook up the big plans for Amazon’s Prime Day which moved its two days …


  1. Great tips, thanks for sharing!

  2. Tricks I use to save $ re: costumes

    1. Watch for Halloween sale stuff or dress up sale stuff all year round. Last year, K was a black cat w ears & a tail I got the year before & stored ($1.99). Black leggings we already had and a black tee! It was precious!
    ***The other thing is that I go after Halloween to Target & Walmart & buy clearance costumes /dress-up stuff for Christmas presents! My kids love to dress up! I bought a Jedi costume, astronaut and something else several years ago for 75% off each! Score!

    Two weeks ago I found out that my first grader had to dress up THE NEXT DAY at school in a Wizard of Oz costume. Two cute/cheap solutions:
    1. Lion: two big skeins of cheap yarn ($8 or less) from any place you can buy yarn. Cut lengths and make a mane. (I can send you pics on how I did it). Then khaki/brow clothes and some face paint or eyeliner. I think I’ll do a blog post about this and then I’ll link back to it for you! It sounds harder than it actually is. I PROMISE! No sewing!
    2. Tim man- shiny duct tape, cardboard box, funnel, gray-ish clothes. Draw/glue a paper heart. Done.

  3. Great tips! I was say maybe swap with friends, too… or check garage sales!

  4. Thanks for sharing this. I’ve learned to save now much more then when my other kids were older. I make sure I seek out the clearance sale that helps me save a lot! :0)

  5. This year I paid attention to what her growing interests are and when I saw a costume on sale through Zulily I got it for her!

  6. I just saw a face painter that used a stencil. Kids that are two or three can be very cute with your wand idea and a little princess glitter on their faces. Or an eyepatch and beard painted with the bandana from the Disney Pirates. Lab coats of course with some imagination. Also, see if you can’t go to the local thrift store.

    Great idea about selling your stuff the day after online. If it doesn’t sell put a reminder on your calendar to sell it next year.
