We are thrifty people. We buy used, we recycle old items into something new, we try not to buy anything disposable. It is ironic, since our business is selling a service that is a luxury. You don't HAVE to have entertainment at a birthday party or company picnic, a sweet 16 or a festival. But the key in being thrifty is to decide where you are willing to cut back, so you can splurge on what you want.
In fact, being thrifty is how we have survived this economic downturn as well as we did, and we have turned to blogs such "Penny Pinchin' Mom" for ideas. Today I read an interesting blog on how to save money on birthday parties. (I really like her advice on RSVP-ing, but that is for another day.) This economy is rough, and we don't know anyone who hasn't been affected by it in some way. Hopefully these tips will help make the party a lighter expense on your wallet.
However, we also understand the value of quality. Just because you can do or purchase something cheaply, does not make it a good value. What is the point of having a party if no one is having fun.
Just to add a few tips of our own:
