The Best Way to Budget for a Birthday

Everyone likes to go big for birthdays, and the best way to do that is by planning ahead.

It’s a time of celebration- letting someone know how much you mean to them, and that’s something that should never be sacrificed.

There are plenty of ways to do this without going overboard in expenditures, just take a look below!

Don’t wait until the last minute

When you know something is months away, it’s very easy to put it off until the date starts to creep up on you. But if you do this while trying to save money you might not be so successful.

If you plan things out in advance you tend to receive better rates and deals. Not only does planning ahead save you money, but it saves you stress. If you wait until the last minute to do everything sometimes stress overrides the fun in what you’re doing.


Have you ever heard “If you want something done right, do it yourself?” Well, although that may not be true in every case, it does make sense if your honorable guest likes things done in a particular way.

When you put forth the effort in making the invitations, or cake and decorations yourself then that just shows how much you really care in a new way. This is your chance to show off your creative side, but remember to allow yourself enough time.

Use a free venue

People always want to throw the nicest party for birthdays so they always look to outsource the location. This is an extremely costly component to party planning so turn to the alternative.

Use someone’s home, a public park, or the beach. Always keep your honorable guest in mind- what do they love? Surround the party around them and your decisions will be made easy.

E-vite guests

Want to throw an unforgettable party, while helping the environment? Do away with paper invitations and move to digital!

All you need is your friend's email addresses, and once you have those you can design a remarkable invitation, at no cost- that’s right some programs are completely free. Most invitations get thrown out soon after the party, which is a total waste. With e-vites, guests can easily discard their digital copy or keep them in their inbox for reference.

A cool feature to e-vites are the features included. Invited guests can save images, call a phone number, and RSVP right in one spot. Talking about saving time and money!
