Top 5 Money Saving Tips For Kids Birthday Parties
If you’re looking to have a party organised at home, or at the local park, and you’re looking to save money, read through our “Top 5 money saving tips for kids birthday parties”, to ensure you don’t spend a fortune on your next party! Here they are:
1. FrequencySome parents have opted to have their children’s parties every two years, and have a day out or a family gathering for the years between. This allows them to spend more on the years where the party falls, and have a larger party experience. However, kids shouldn’t go without celebrations on their birthdays, so a day out to their favourite play centre with a few close friends followed by dinner with family is a good alternative when it’s not the ‘party year’.
Start planning early: keep an eye out for lollies/things to fill the party bags or feed the kids, weeks before the date of the party.Grocery stores frequently run specials on these items, but keeping an eye out over the course of a couple of months means you’re more likely to purchase most items you need on special some time or another.
3. Party Invites
The most cost effective way of getting the party invites out of the way is electronically. Using a computer to create your invites is the best way to save money on expensive invitations. It also saves printing costs as invitations can be emailed to parents, and still retain all their wonderful decorations.
Here is a good place to get electronic party invites.
Choosing a free or affordable location is crucial to stay on a budget.
If you’re not willing to have dozens of children running around your house for two hours (which makes sense), you might like to choose to hire an affordable venue like a community hall or hold your party in a park/playground.
