If you want to help others, you can also donate your old Halloween costumes to Goodwill

MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — If you’re still hoping to get Halloween décor or a costume, you may be in luck! You can really stretch your dollar on the holiday before the trick or treating begins.  As scary as it may be, Halloween is just a few days away now.

If you’re still looking to pick up a costume or home décor, you may be able to get it all done this weekend without spending a lot of money. Beth Derubbo is a Floral Designer at Michaels and says all Halloween and Fall items are now 70% off.

“You can pull together for your children a little princess tutu, and a cute little shirt and for a little boy you can turn him into batman for under $5,” she said.

You can also stretch your dollar on décor to greet trick-or-treaters or creative spreads if you’re hosting guests. Or you can stop into a Goodwill store to save money, they have full costumes, pieces of costumes, or you can put one together yourself. Here’s one store associates put together. It’s a little cowgirl costume, under ten bucks.

“From a couple of dollars on up. We have such a mix and array of costumes, you can or we can help you build your own character costume, we have headpieces, pirate hats, princess hats,” said Suzanne Lewis, the Goodwill Manager in Milford.

Or if you want to help others save a buck, you can also donate your old Halloween costumes to Goodwill so your neighbors can enjoy it who may not have the resources to buy brand new costumes.
