How to Throw a Holiday Party on the Cheap
Everyone loves to play hostess, but throwing your own holiday bash can put a huge dent in your bank account. Sure, a potluck is cheaper, but we’ve all been there, done that, and been stuck with three leftover pumpkin pies.
Check out these tips to host a fabulous party without cutting into your gift-giving budget:
Don’t cringe—they have some of the same stuff you would buy at a party store, but for way less. Pick up disposable cups, plates, and utensils to save on cash and your cleanup, says Andrea Woroch, money-saving expert for Kinoli Inc. Around the holidays, most dollar stores bust out the festive serving ware, so it won’t be all red solo cups and white cutlery, either.
Surprisingly, you’ll find the best prices on wine in big box stores like Sam’s Club and Costco, says Woroch. Don’t have a membership? Just go with a friend who does and pay in cash. You can also head to your nearest liquor store to see if they offer any deals if you buy a case of wine rather than just a few bottles. If it’s more than you’ll use, split with a friend who’s hosting the next get together.
A spiked punch is pretty much a necessity at holiday parties. Plus, a pre-made concoction can help you get more drinks out of a single bottle of wine or champagne. Just add fresh fruit juices (which are less expensive than adding another bottle of bubbly to the punch bowl), and you’ll double your beverages for the night, says Woroch.
“The bakery aisle at your grocery store represents the highest markup of any food items, reaching nearly 300 percent in some cases,” says Woroch. Opt for a box mix of cookies or cake instead. You might have to spend 20 extra minutes in the kitchen, but your wallet will thank you (and so will your guests—freshly baked always tastes better).
As with baked goods, pre-cut veggies have a huge markup when compared to fresh produce. Plus, no one eats that many cauliflower florets. Cut costs by cutting up the veggies yourself.
Downloading everyone’s favorite songs—or festive holiday music—on iTunes can get pricey, not to mention tedious. Enter Pandora and Spotify.
