It’s easy to get carried away on events like Halloween. Personally, I’m always between two minds as to what approach to take: Do I go all out, get a new costume for myself (or my dog) and throw a party with all my friends. Or do I take the more savvy approach, which consists of creating a costume with stuff that I already own and not even give away any candy?
First off, I’ll be pointing out the best deals available online. After that, I have assembled a selection of articles and resources that I found instructive to finding creative ways to save a few bucks this Halloween. Some ideas aren’t for everyone, but they do a good job of opening up your mind to all sorts of frugal approaches.
