Everybody loves Baby Showers but the cost can be staggering as anyone who has ever planned a baby shower knows. It isn’t that the guests expect a large bash but we are always so worried there will not be enough we go overboard.
My Favorite Tip when Planning a Baby Shower
Take people up on their offer to help. You do not have to be a superwoman and do everything yourself. Remember when planning a baby shower that 5 people bringing dishes is 5 less dishes you have have to make or pay for.
Hi I’m Gwendolyn and I have been a stay at home mom since 2009. I have been with my husband, James, for 10 years and we are proud parents of Jayme (9) and Nicholas (14). We foster dogs and are also parents to 3 dogs, 2 cats, 1 hamster, 1 fish, and a snake. My father-in-law lives with us so it is always non-stop at our house. I had the honor of becoming a step-parent when I got married and have a great relationship with my step-son. I always used coupons and shopped for bargains but was forced to step up my game when my husband was disabled in 2005. I get an incredible rush from saving money and finding great deals. My life is a constant journey and I look forward to sharing it with you all.
Topic: Planning a Baby Shower on a Budget
One of the best things about the holiday season is all the holiday parties and gatherings. It is fun to get together with friends and family and take a break from reality for a little while. The part that is not fun is the party planning. The reason it is not fun is usually because the cost of planning a party or even a small get together can really attack the budget. In a few weeks I am going to open up my house for a holiday party with friends and so the planning has begun. I am not stressed anymore as I have come up with a 10 step party plan that is also budget friendly.
