Halloween is fun, and it's even more fun with a great costume. How much do you spend on Halloween costumes?

My kids have begun making their requests for Halloween costumes, so I have started saving money for Halloween. Halloween costumes aren't cheap and I am not talented enough to make my own costumes. I spoke to one mother over the weekend who LOVES Halloween, she has four kids and spends an average of $300 on Halloween each year. This is way too much for me to spend, but I do share her love for the holiday.
