Celebration Savings Tips
New Years Eve can be a great time to celebrate with friends and family! The best way to manage your finances on New Year’s Eve is to plan ahead and set a defined budget you are comfortable with.
Here are a few helpful hints for saving during New Year's celebrations:
- Buy early & look for group discounts. If you plan to go to a paid event, be sure to buy your tickets early as prices go up closer to New Years Eve! Another cost saving tip when going to a paid event with a group, is to ask the venue if they are offering discounted tickets to larger groups.
- Rent your outfit to save tons of money. If your event calls for formal attire, you can skip the sizeable price tag and get some great formal wear at a bargain. You can rent a tuxedo or dress for a fraction of the retail cost.
- Stay in to celebrate as a great money saving alternative! You can ask each guest to bring a dish or drink for everyone to share. Otherwise, you can pick the food and drinks and just ask everyone to pitch in $10 or so to help alleviate the cost of hosting.
