You Don’t Have to Break the Bank to Throw a Great Party

When you have kids, you get familiar with shoveling out loads of money for so many different things.
School clothes, sports, art classes, new shoes because their feet just won’t stop!
Kids’ birthday parties are no different. With the development of Pinterest, there is a constant need to be bigger and bolder and better!
My kids are just as thrilled with the simple parties as they are with the over-the-top-beat-those-Joneses-to-the-ground parties.
Actually, I think they may even be happier with the simpler parties. They aren’t so overwhelmed with the mass amounts of people I feel the need to invite. Or with the elaborate activities and need for participation.
A couple fun things to keep the little ones occupied, a game or 2 for a big kid’s party, and bam, a group of happy kids.
Kids’ birthday parties do not have to burn holes in your pockets.
What’s the key to staying on a budget or watching those totals when there is a party on the horizon? Planning!
Plan ahead, plan ahead, plan ahead.
I get it, when your kids turn 1, 2, and sometimes even 3, there are friends and family members you want to invite to share in the celebration.
