So, how can you celebrate the holidays if you’re on a budget? Don’t worry— you can be the hostest with the mostest with having to break the bank!
Self.com suggests a number of ways that you can prepare for your holiday guests will still staying true to your budget. One way to do this is to start planning ahead. Search for deals and coupons and buy the items you need as they go on sale. Of course, there are certain items that you will need to wait to buy closer to the actual date, such as produce. However, you can still save some money by shopping around to find the best deals.
You can also turn your event into a potluck. Ask your guests to bring their favorite dish to share with the group, making the event a group effort and saving you money all at the same time. Or, you can offer to prepare the meal, but ask your guests to bring the desserts and drinks.
Don’t feel obligated to cook a gigantic turkey either. You can save money by only buying parts of the turkey instead of a whole turkey. Not only is it cheaper, it will also make your job as the cook much easier. You can even mix things up and offer chicken instead of turkey to save a few bucks and still offer a crowd-pleasing meal.
