The spring season, with its holidays like Easter and its images of bunnies, little chicks and bright pastel colors, is symbolic of the rebirth of life. It is also the time for weddings, graduations and milestone celebrations. Celebrating is an important part of an accomplishment, because it serves to recognize the effort and sacrifices required to achieve that goal. Here are a couple of tips to help you celebrate both your and your family’s accomplishments without hurting the bank.
Make it a Potluck
This money saving tip is the simplest way to help save keep extra cash in your pocket! All you have to do is tell everyone to bring their favorite drinks or dish. You can supply the staple food for the party like chips and salsa and a couple boxes of pizza, but the rest of your spread can be provided by your guest. Their contribution could range from a bottle of wine to an elaborate dish. Not only will this save you money, but it will make your celebration have more variety for everybody attending it.
Furthermore, if you want to make sure nobody brings the same dish, make an invite via a social media site like Pinterest or Facebook and tell everybody who is going to make note of what they are bringing. This will help avoid having too many varieties of the same things (like having too many chips).
Buy Your Party Items in Bulk or Online
For those items you are buying for your guests, you should consider purchasing in bulk. Sometimes, depending on the size of your celebration, it may be beneficial to subscribe to an annual membership with a wholesale retailer. Even if you don’t have a membership with a wholesale store, you could still buy items in bulk, such as cases of soda, at your local grocer or market. If you aren’t able to find bulk items locally, you may be able to look online and buy bigger packages at a much cheaper price. You may need to plan and do your shopping ahead of time, but the savings are always worthwhile when you’re able to keep more money in your pocket.
Share Your Celebrations
If you’re celebrating a graduation, why not celebrate your accomplishments with the whole graduating class? Although more people may be invited to your party, it also means that you will be able to split many of the costs that are associated with your celebration. This will also be a good time to reminisce with your friends about all the hard work, stress and fun it took to get to the finish line.
