How many of you have bins in the attic or basement full of past years Halloween costumes that you know will never be worn again? I know how expensive these costumes probably were, and as hard as it may be, it’s time to sell them at your next garage sale, (September or early October is the perfect time), list them on Craigslist, or on your local Facebook yard sale group. It amazes me how fast things get sold on my local FB yard sale group, so whether you’re a seller or buyer it’s a great place to save and buy. Now, on to the costume saving tips for this upcoming Halloween season or any time of the year!
Since I am a huge fan of the Star Wars movies, here is an example of a Ladies Stormstrooper Costume that you can actually rent for around $33 on HalloweenCostumes.com. What I love about renting a costume is that you get to wear something that probably no one else will, and you get to send it back! This is a great alternative for anyone hosting or going to a Halloween party this year.
You can also buy pre-owned costumes, such as this Adult Jedi Robe for around $60, which is a super way to save if you love to go to themed parties. This is a perfect option for all of you Star Wars fanatics out there who plan on attending as many premiere parties for the upcoming new Star Wars movie premiering this December. May the force be with you! 🙂
