Editor's Note: Congratulations to Hofken, Verl, and Lisa for winning this week's contest!

Halloween is right around the corner! The time is upon us to stock up on candy for the trick-or-treaters, decorate the house, and get our Halloween costumes ready. While many people opt to go to the local Halloween costume shop to secure the perfect costume, others prefer to make their own costumes to save money.

Will you buy a Halloween costume this year? Or will you opt to make your own costume?

Tell us if you will buy a Halloween costume this year and we'll enter you in a drawing to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!

Unfortunately, yes. I had big plans for homemade costumes for my two daughters. Went to Goodwill and bought the requisite items - a coat with a very furry lining that I was going to turn into a werewolf costume and a fancy dress that was going to be the basis of the princess costume. Somewhere mid-massive head cold and despair, I gave up, went to bed and sent my husband to the store with the little ones. $50 later, they're going as a princess and a cowgirl. Maybe next year.

I bought a costume on sale for $5 online for my baby daughter, but I didn't buy or make one for myself.
