Halloween is almost upon us. Looking for a costume for you or your kids? If you want to avoid spending a scary amount of money and, also, don’t want to spend lots of time, here’s a list of 101 cheap, easy homemade costumes.
You can make great costumes using things you have around the house (such as old sheets, toilet paper or duct tape), can borrow from relatives (surely someone has a bow tie or frilly 1950’s apron) or can buy items inexpensively from a thrift store or discount store (plaid jacket or “princess” crown).
The list is from our sister site, Living on the Cheap. There are so many ideas that they’re divided into sections: scary, real-life people, Pop culture and history, offbeat, sports-themed and animals. Some you’ll find are: a nerd, Medusa, grocery bag and Zombie Bride.
Also, just as Mile High on the Cheap gives you the scoop on local events and deals, Living on the Cheap does the same on a national basis, and also shares tips on topics such as How to watch college football without cable and 6 ways to get a cheap gym membership. You can subscribe by e-mail, too.
