It's hard to keep costs down during Halloween especially if you have more than one child. A lot of moms save money by making their child's Halloween costumes. I'm not that talented. If I could sew more than the basic blanket I would try to make my children's costumes. Buying Halloween costumes can become very expensive, especially if you buy the accessories. You would think that making your Halloween costumes would save you money but every time I make a project I have more money in supplies than if I would have bought the project to begin with. I obviously don't have the answers, so if you have any suggestions send them our way.
