    Having a birthday party at home and catering it yourself is a great option. Instead of a goody bag, 1 nice toy or puzzle is a great giveaway. I wait throughout the year for a sale at the toy store and but the gifts then. Even if its not a few months until the party. Planning things in advance is a bit hard with kids, but if the end result is saving money, its worth it.

    We already do a lot of the things you suggested so it was great to see we’re on the same page! Something I’d like to try is to collect little goodies throughout the year so there isn’t a big expense all at one time (similar to how I’ve started shopping for Christmas!)

    I think your birthday money-saving ideas are fabulous; I especially appreciate re-using the decorations each year; I do the same thing with the birthday banner I use to create a Birthday Wall for my two daughters and for my grandboy.

    I have posted your video, How to Save on Kid’s Birthday Parties, on my blog, The Birthday Wall, where I share party tips and inspiring birthday stories for my readers.

    Thanks again for sharing these great money-saving ideas.

    Be refreshed,
