We celebrated my son’s 9th birthday last weekend (seriously – where does the time go?) and invited a few of his friends over for a party. Not only was the party a huge success, I was rather pleased with some of the ways I was able to do it on a budget. Of course, I wanted to share some of these ideas with you today!
Here are 5 tips for saving money on your next birthday party.
Tip #1: Scour the Dollar Store!
My son was the one to suggest we hit up the Dollar Store for party supplies. Of course! Why didn’t I think of that?!
We found a LOT of items you’d pay much more for at a specialty party store including plates, cups, napkins, small treats, goodies, and more. I was tickled to find the sports-themed plates pictured above.
