    "Poshmark is a leader in online clothing sales, and I would recommend it for a great deal on a Halloween costume that will make you the hit of any Halloween party. They have great prices, and the app is super easy to use. There are tens of thousands of positive ratings on this app on the App Store."

    "Short of making it yourself this app provides an easy to use way to buy second-hand costumes if you're in to buying pre-made outfits for Halloween! It has good reviews on the app stores for both Android and Apple devices, and their website is easy to browse to boot."

    "I needed a Halloween costume immediately for my child's upcoming party that will be held a week before Halloween. I needed it to be tasteful and elegant. I went to Etsy's website and there were dozens of options that suited a young child. I chose the costume, ordered it and it was on my doorstep in less than 48 hours. This will be the best Halloween ever. "

    "A decent alternative to other similar apps or to the grandfather of selling stuff online, Craigslist. The app itself works well, although I did have some problems at the beginning because the app would keep on flagging the stuff I was trying to post. It stopped doing it relatively quickly though, and I was able to sell my first batch of stuff from the basement during the weekend. Overall painless and useful, although I kind of feel there are more shady people on this than one other, more established platforms."

    "Yet another in a long line of app-based selling platforms. The problem with this one is they are so customer focused, that being a seller there is risky. Lots of BS returns authorized without my permission. And no explanation from the customer service department. I won't be using this app any more."

    "It seems every year I drop 100-200 dollars on a Halloween costume. That may not be a lot of money, but it definitely adds up over time. I turned to the app Wally to help me with the budgeting of daily expenses (food, drink) and less frequent ones (like costumes). The app is in beta and still a bit crash-prone. But I like the simple UI and appealing graphic elements. "

    "I used to use an Microsoft Excel to make a track of my spending. The down side of it is that it is not very well supported by mobile devices. PocketGurad seems to be a good solution to my problem! And I love the style and design of the interface, too!"

    "This app is more of a self help book style app than something specifically that will help you make a little extra money for halloween costumes. Being more financially responsible is always a good thing, but it takes time to build new habits."
