Dear Broke College Student, These Are The Only 13 Costumes You Need To Choose From

Because when you're on a budget, sometimes you need to improvise.

Dear Broke College Student, These Are The Only 13 Costumes You Need To Choose From

I'm not going to lie......I love Halloween. It's always been my favorite holiday and every year I get so excited when it comes around. But I remember what it was like being in college and still wanting to celebrate. Trying to come up with a creative costume while looking at my bank account, barely enough money to get me through the week. Not to mention the decision to either eat at the dining hall or spend my last dollars in my wallet on Wendy's instead. So, if you still want to get dressed up and not break the bank, here are 13 Halloween costumes for the broke college student. Happy hauntings!

1. Chip On Your Shoulder

I love a good ~punny~ costume

2. Dominos 

A childhood game brought to life.

3. Cactus 

Nothing prickly about this costume choice. Plus you get to be warm for the night when bouncing from party to party.

4. Pineapple

When you thought you would have the personality of Spongebob Squarepants but end up as his house instead.

15. Bread Winner 

Because Housewife costumes are cancelled.

6. Spice Girls 

And the punny costumes keep rolling in

7. Raining Men


8. The Bachelorette 

Because there's no better time to find your new boo

9. Deer

I'll admit to doing this a couple of years ago. You can never go wrong with any type of animal costume.

10. Dancing Friends Emoji

Cute and comfy, can't go wrong.

11. Scarecrow

Because everyone has a flannel in their closet.

12. Rosie the Riveter 

Girl power

13. Flapper 

What better excuse to feel Gatsby for one night instead of the broke college student hat you are?

There you have it, I hope these costumes were able to help you out. As for me, I may not be in college anymore and take online classes for grad school......but I'm still a little broke. Therefore, I'm making my own costume and I'm going as Audrey Hepburn from "Breakfast At Tiffany's" except not in the classic black dress. Her white button-down, eye mask, and earplugs instead.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
