How I Save On My Children Birthday

August 12th, 2013 at 03:55 am

I have friends who spend thousands of dollars on their children birthdays.
I do not have that type of money and I am going to share with you how we enjoy my children birthdays on a minimum budget.
1.I sit with my twin boys and we discuss what we need for the party. From the beginning I tell them that my budget is very limited and we should only spend when we have to.
2.I do not use credit cards and I advise that it is not a good idea at all. I spend a little on my savings.
3.I make their birthday cakes at home plus cup cakes and biscuits.
4.I buy cheap paper cups and plates.
5.Children like their faces painted although it is wise to ask parents first in case of allergies. I have a 19 year old nephew and he does that task.
6.We normally have their party in a park as it is free.
7.I have a sister you is a primary teacher and she organizes different themes for the invited children. She is really very good. You can ask a friend or good neighbor to do it for you for free.
8.A friend helps me to design invitation cards and she also makes some banners for me. If you are good at it it is even better. She prints all from the computer.
9.Children might talk about many friends but I encourage my boys to limit the number as a small party is cheaper. Normally we list those who have invited them first but I am just cautious as friendship of children is very fragile sometimes.

Please if you have more tips, I will be happy to tell me.

    We use EVITES, the free invitations that you can customize on the computer. This saves on money and time.

    We give our children a budget and let them plan accordingly. This year due to our circumstances, it is reduced by quite a bit, but there is enough for an outing with a friend. We also come back to the house for cupcakes. Decorating their own can be great fun, too.

    I second the asking parents about face painting. I'm the parent of a child with allergies to metals of all kinds. It is very scary what is lurking in the contents of inexpensive face paint from China.

    Great list!
