How can I save money throwing a graduation party?
There are many ways to cut corners when planning a graduation party. Some reports say families spend an average of $1,200 on graduation parties. With a little research, careful planning, penny-pinching, and these party planning tips, celebrating your graduate's accomplishment doesn't have to put you in the poor house. Here are some tips :
- Consider throwing a joint graduation party with another family member or neighbor. That way, you can split the expenses.
- Limit your menu to snacks
- If you are planning a buffet, keep in mind that most people who host graduation parties complain that they ordered too much food. Try to keep your food items to ones that can be frozen and stored afterwards so they don't go to waste. Ask family and friends to make an item for the buffet and it will be less you'll have to buy.
- Buy paper goods at a seasonal sale
