PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Halloween is less than a week away and whether you are scrambling for a last minute costume for a weekend party or your trick or treating on Monday - we've got you covered.

Credit.com has some handy tips on saving money on that costume. First, for the crafty DIYers.

Hit up Pinterest and dig through your closet.

Visit your local thrift store. Whether it's an assembled costume or bits and pieces, you can walk out with something great for less than $20.

Procrastinators can also celebrate because Halloween is on a Monday this year. That means costumes will hit the sale racks starting this weekend.

And we are talking sales of up to 75% off - this year's styles!

Finally, it's not too late to host a costume swap. Costumes are typically only worn once, so this is a popular way to save.
