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 percent 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.

One can also stretch their dollar on décor to greet trick-or-treaters or creative spreads if you’re hosting guests.

Shoppers can also save money by stopping by a Goodwill store. They have full costumes, pieces of costumes, or you can put one together yourself.

“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,” said Suzanne Lewis, a manager at Goodwill. “We have headpieces, pirate hats, and princess hats.”

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