13 Costume Ideas For The Girl Who's Spooked About Spending Money This Halloween

October is just a few weeks away, which means Halloween is just around the corner. As someone who LOVES Halloween, I am always thinking of costume ideas. Of course, sometimes people don't want to (or can't) spend much time or money on a costume. This list provides an array of options for anyone looking for costume inspiration. In my experience, Walmart and dollar stores are one of the best places to look for cheap costumes that can be put together quickly. Halloween stores can be pricey, but they are likely to have almost everything you need. Whether you're just looking for costume ideas or trying to put together a last-minute Halloween costume, this list is for you.

The Jellyfish

A jellyfish costume is seemingly easy to put together. All you need is an umbrella, streamers, and an outfit of your choosing. You can hang the streamers from the umbrella, or you can also string lights along the umbrella if you're up for it. I suggest a clear umbrella, but obviously the costume is the creator's preference.

Porcelain Doll

You could put together a "new" porcelain doll costume with a nice dress and cute makeup. Or you can put together an old, "haunted" porcelain doll with a worn dress and cracks painted on your face. This one seems simple enough!

Zombie

All you need to dress as a zombie is tattered clothing, messy hair, and makeup. It's the basic zombie look, but you could also get fake lacerations from any Halloween store. You can make it as basic or exotic as you please!

The Purge

Dressing as a classic The Purge character is as easy as a mask that you can get at any Halloween store and an outfit of your choosing, with the option of a weapon like a bat. I have also seen people play The Purge announcement on a portable speaker. This costume is extremely quick and efficient.

Jigsaw

Jigsaw is a great last minute costume. All you need is a white shirt, black blazer, and black, red, and white face paint. Quick and easy!

Deer

You can buy an antler headband, buy or put together a flower crown, or wear no headgear. White or brown clothing and face paint will tie the entire look together!

Devil

Devil horns and a tail can be found at Walmart, Amazon, or any store that sells Halloween costumes. A red dress would be the perfect core to this costume!

Vampire

You can purchase vampire teeth, a red or black cape from any Halloween store, at Walmart, or on Amazon. You can wear a dark-colored outfit with a little bit of eyeliner, and voila!

Scarecrow

All you need is a tattered hat, a plaid flannel shirt, a pair of jeans or overalls, and some scarecrow face paint!

Red Riding Hood

All you need is a red cape, red shoes, and any dress with white. You can dress it up or keep it as minimal as you want! The red shoes and white dress are items that you will likely be able to find at a thrift store, while a red cape can be found at any Walmart.

The Wolf

Perfect for a couple costume with Red Riding Hood! You can find wolf ears and a tail at any Halloween store, at Walmart, or on Amazon. The wolf ears and tail are easily matched with a plaid flannel shirt and a pair of jeans!

Bunny

One classic Halloween costume is the bunny. It's as simple as bunny ears and a tail tied together with the outfit of your choosing!

Cat

Finally, the classic cat costume. You can get a pair of cat ears and a tail at almost any discount or dollar store. With a little makeup and the perfect cat outfit, this is a quick and easy costume!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
