Celebrate Halloween At The Dollar Tree!


Everyone knows buying a Halloween costume is not only time consuming, but can hit you hard in the wallet. We recently sent our own Andrew Ramos on a mission to make the most out of a buck at a local 99 cents store. With the help of trick-or-treaters Colleen and Steven, they managed to muster up six costume ideas – one as cheap as $2.

From Lady Gaga to The Jersey Shore’s Snooki, these popular costumes were found right inside a Dollar Tree on Long Island. Learn how to accomplish these easy look, plus many more this Halloween.
