Not having the funds to throw a birthday bash or just a friendly get-together with your friends can get tiring, and at the end of the day you don’t really want to have to spend a lot of money on throwing a party anyway. Why should you? There are plenty of untapped resources that can make any party a hit without throwing your wallet in the bin.
The best way to start out gathering supplies for your party is to find a cheap party store. You don’t have to buy everything you come across, but walking through the store may give you ideas on what you want at your party, and what decorations you can make yourself. Dance party supplies don’t need to be expensive, and really all you’ll need is some atmosphere and music. Have fun gathering ideas and finding affordable decorations.
One great way to save money is to plan your party between meals, probably between lunch and supper. This way guests don’t come hungry and they don’t expect a full meal. Buy some snacks but don’t plan on grilling a dozen burgers for your guests.
Don’t send paper invitations. The price of stationary and postage can add up, and it’s a lot of work to get them all ready to go. Instead, send digital invites via email, or create an Event on Facebook and invite your friends to it through social media. Not only will they get the invite in record time, but an event page on Facebook also allows for a convenient way to send your guests updates on times, locations, and whether or not they should bring anything to the party. All of the information is all in one place. Don’t let strained finances keep you from having fun with the ones you love.
