My frugal tip is when hosting a party. Make it a Potluck! Have guest's bring their own side dishes or deserts. I'll provide the main dish and the drinks. It save's a lot of money and time cooking in the kitchen. And it really works too!

Coupons, coupons, coupons!!

8 Laurie D January 31, 2010 at 5:32 pm

I stockpile and always plan ahead for the deals so I can get everything for a party really inexpensive! I watch the deals on your blog and start shopping ahead of time. I'm always ready for a party this way! For the superbowl I have sabrett hot dogs I picked up b1g1f, lays bags of chips for $1 each, sour cream for dip for .35 for 16 oz., Farm Rich cheese sticks for $1.50 per big bag, hamburger meat for under $1 - $2 a pound, 12 packs of soda for $1-$1.50 a 12 pack (coke, pepsi, etc.).... I can pretty much have a party on demand if I need to. My goal is to only spend about $50-$75 a week for groceries for a family of 4. I have two industrial size shelving units I use for my stockpiles and a big stand alone freezer. I always have food & groceries on hand to last 1 -2 months or more and to share with family members who are underemployed at this time:-) I buy nothing unless it's on sale and/or I have a coupon:-)

I'm big on potluck events. Other than saving money, it's always great to see what dishes others make.

When I host a party, I always make it a potluck! That way everyone can sample all sorts of goodies and I can make a dish that is affordable for my family. I also try to stock up on paper plates and plastic silverware when it is on sale. Thanks for the giveaway!

Saving Money, Have to go with the POT LUCK

21 Tammy January 31, 2010 at 7:30 pm

I use coupons and watch for snack items on sale!

22 Carmen January 31, 2010 at 7:55 pm

My best tip? Make it potluck. Our friends and family always ask if they can bring something anyway, so I usually make the main course and fill in with a salad or dessert - or something that isn't covered by the guests.

I almost always go potluck. It's a great way to save time and money. And no one seems to be bothered by bringing something to contribute!

My best frugal party tip is to make it a potluck party. Then I use my stockpile of plates, cups and silverware that I have collected when they are on sale or have a great coupon. Even better is when I can take advantage of a sale and coupons.

36 Donna January 31, 2010 at 11:54 pm

What are your best frugal party tips?
Shop all the grocery flyers, go where a store will honor competetor pricing, have your coupon box with you, even if you don't thing you will need it, there is something you will always come across that you wish you had all your flyers and your coupons. Then your company always want to bring something; let them bring their suggestion or offer them to bring their own drink. Offer party favors. Even men love party items. Good Luck Teams! Go Team! Beat ________!

42 kk February 1, 2010 at 3:31 am

My frugal party tip is... potluck!!! Thanks :-)

43 Pat F. February 1, 2010 at 7:46 am

What are your best frugal party tips: buy when things are on sale and stash them away if you can, especially drink itmes, for me as the hostess I try to theme it and in doing that keep it simple, all dessert, all appetizers, ect. and then ask each guest to bring something from that category to share. Buy beverages on sale and mostly just enjoy!

I plan my parties at least a month or so in advance and try to think of receipes withing that month by using what I have already in my pantry instead of buying a bunch of items and spending a lot of money.

46 Tonya Keener February 1, 2010 at 8:28 am

Shopping at Dollar General is how I get the most for the least money when getting ready for the Superbowl. I also look for deals throughout the year instead of waiting till right before the game. I am also an email subscriber.

47 Kimberly February 1, 2010 at 9:18 am

My party tip is to just keep it simple - I am forever adding "just one more thing" and that can really drive the cost up!
