Halloween for adults is a tough time with a tough decision. You can either buy a $75 costume, then store it away until next year when you wear it again or not wear a costume at all. Thankfully, there is a third option, make your own costume. DIY Halloween costumes help you save money, get creative, and get exactly what you want. You can go super scary, creative, sweet or adult or go with all four.
Saving up for the holidays means you need to skimp in some areas but making DIY Halloween costumes helps save money without skimping on fun!
