My Simple (and inexpensive) Halloween Costumes

Halloween is a few weeks away, and for me, I am on Pinterest looking for inexpensive and simple Halloween costume ideas that still look like I tried. I am a gal on a budget folks. I don’t want to spend much on something I will only wear once. My secret? Just basically taking as much of something that I already have and then adding one or two things at the cheapest price I can.

There are so many different options out there. However, if you’re trying to figure out some ideas, here are some of my go-tos from years past.

Rosie The Rivetor:

Rosie the Rivetor was a costume that I wore during a costume party at my old job. Basically, I just wear a pair of jeans, a denim shirt, and a bandana. It was such an easy costume since I had all of those things already.


Another great costume that I have used for many years is the cat costume. In fact, I still have the ears. All I did was wear all black, and then bought a set (cat ears, tail, bow-tie) from CVS or Walgreens. It ended up costing me $6. I highly recommend checking the seasonal aisle at CVS or Walgreens, as it has some affordable options.

What are some inexpensive Halloween costumes that you’ve worn? Let me know in the comments below.
