It occured to me today that I might need to consider planning Zoe's 1st birthday party since she turns "THE BIG ONE" in 1 month and 5 days. (How did that happen so quickly?!?)
My frugal tip of the day: Don't buy a ton of crap. Simple as that.
I don't know about you, but I get irritated when we attend a birthday party and Elliott leaves with a bag full of dangerous plastic junk from the dollar store. Not worth it. I'm pretty sure my family and friends will love us, even without that thoughtful parting gift.
Also, shop on line. Party America is the worlds biggest rip off - $5 for napkins my left foot.
Throw in the Kohls gifts I got this morning for $5 and the free hostess gift from when I (briefly) sold Discovery Toys, and you've got one awesome - and frugal - first birthday for the sweetest girl I know.
