GUEST BLOGGER: Saving Hundreds: The un-crafty birthday

Hello everyone!

My name is Hayley Hayes and I am SO very honored to be guest posting once a month for the next few months here on Mommy on Demand. I am the author of funnymomstories.com – so if you like what you read here be sure to check me out!

One of the things that I pride myself in is the ability to be cheap frugal. Call it a gift. Also call it being poor. Whatever you want to call it is fine with me. Once a month, I’m going to share with you 1 way that your family can save big money. This week, I’d like to introduce you to:

The Un-Crafty Birthday

Alright. If you’re crafty and you know it- good for you. Some of us however, like me- can’t transform an empty cereal box into the preschool version of the Mona Lisa. I just don’t have the vision. So of course all you DIYers out there can fart confetti and have a pinterest penthouse pinboard (say that 3x fast!) of your child’s shabby but not too shabby chic birthday party. I’m not hating. But that’s not me.

If you’re a fellow passenger on the not naturally crafty bus with a limited budget- this is for you. Here’s how I save hundreds without doing napkin origami.

1. Shop your house. And your mama’s house. And your sister’s house.

My daughter’s birthday is coming up in October. Naturally, I feel anxiety to make it local news worthy because I’m a mom in the social media age of comparison. But, as I’ve mentioned, we aren’t exactly raining dolla billz over here. Our goal was to do our daughter’s birthday party on a $100 budget.

My first step was to not spend any money. I shopped my house and my mama’s house. My sister had recently been involved with a bridal shower that had used this wreath. I literally wrapped some of her leftover shower lace around it once and wrote “Happy Birthday Ellie” on an envelope…. and that was free. Here is a list of other things I’ve borrowed from relatives for this party:
