Kids Halloween Costumes on a Budget
I’m not necessarily the most frugal mom in the world, I’ve been known to buy impractical things for my daughter
i.e expensive newborn shoes (face palm, cute in theory but so impractical)
But I draw the line at Halloween costumes, I’ve never purchased any for myself because I can’t stop balking at how outrageous they’re priced.
Last year my aunt bought my daughter a sweet pineapple costume. She looked so cute, see below? This is the only photo I have of her in it.
She tried it on once.
And didn’t end up wearing it on Halloween.
I felt horrible for wasting that money.
This year I will forgo the purchased costume and get a little DIY-ey with our costumes. I took a trip to Dollar Tree and was amazed at their entire section of Halloween costumes.
Seriously, mama’s drop what you’re doing and head there for any Halloween costume shopping.
If you are a frugal mom who needs to find kids Halloween costumes on a strict budget this will be your Mecca for Halloween costumes.
Below are a few ideas that I came up with using Dollar Tree finds.

I’d love to hear what else you creative mama’s come up with, I am so impressed with Dollar Tree, I actually picked up the cowboy hat and plan on using it for my Halloween costume (thinking I may be Indiana Jones).
