"A lot of people are having to stretch their money and that might be considered a luxury and they can still look fun and do it on the cheap," says Ladies of Charity's Peggy Bradley.
At the Catholic Ladies of Charity Sale on State Street in Nashville, we found costumes for 1/4 of what you'd pay retail, many still in their original packaging. See how easy it is to save? You can transform into a magical witch for less than $10. At one of the regular retail haunts, it would be $25 or more. They're making high prices disappear.
"With Halloween coming up, where else can you get a costume for $3.99?" asks Goodwill's Jamie Berry. "I just think this little thing is precious."
Most Goodwill locations have a great costume selection, much of it new. We also snapped pics of great deals at Factory Card Outlet - popular character costumes: $10. Finally, don't forget to let your fingers do the looking. Bargain websites like Craigslist and eBay have quite the selection too. One other great way to save is to borrow costumes from friends or family. An even trade for the night works well too. Your child wears their child's costume from last year and vice versa.

Man pleads guilty to Memphis officer's murder
May 21, 2013 22:22 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A former death row inmate is set to be released from prison after he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder of a Memphis police officer.
Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich said Tuesday that she has accepted Timothy McKinney's guilty plea.
McKinney was convicted of first-degree murder for the fatal shooting of Officer Don Williams. The officer was killed outside a comedy club in December 1997.
McKinney appealed and won a new trial, which ended with a deadlocked jury. A third trial earlier this year also ended in a hung jury.
The Commercial Appeal reports that McKinney was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Since he's already served more than 15 years -- including 11 on death row -- McKinney will be released this week.
Williams' family opposed the settlement.
