Bringing in the New Year More Affordably with New Year’s Eve Tips

What better way to bring in 2013 than with having a little bit of extra cash in your pocket? With 2012 coming to an end there will be many after Christmas sales and New Year’s promotions on clothing, toys and even food, but what about saving while having a little fun on December 31st ? New Year’s Eve is an amazing, fun filled celebration of the New Year and opportunities to come, but it can also be a very expensive celebration. Whether you are going out to dinner or hosting a party you can find your wallet emptier than you’d like. Use RewardIt’s guide to saving money on New Year’s Eve and find yourself bringing in the New Year happier than ever.

Bringing in the New Year More Affordably with New Year’s Eve TipsIf  you’re hosting your own New Year’s Eve party, a great way to save is by serving a variety of delicious appetizers rather than a full course meal. Appetizers can be easily made and relatively inexpensive. has 10 different appetizers that are not only easy, but also very affordable. It’s also never a bad idea to allow guests bring a dish of their own, it will add variety for everyone to love. While telling people to bring appetizers to your party, mention to them that bringing a bottle of wine can be an alternative to a dish.

Use after Christmas sales and the clearance section for everything! With almost everything being marked down after Christmas you can find affordable party favors, decorations and even food. Visit your local arts and craft store, like Michaels, and get the supplies to make the decorations and favors yourself. This can be a fun bonding experience for the entire family.

If you are going out this New Year’s Eve first remember to stay safe and designate a driver. There is nothing more expensive than getting arrested. Save yourself thousands of dollars and call a cab. Many states are offering free rides home, the Tipsy Tow program from AAA is offering rides home as well for free. Be sure to check a head of time if these free services are offered near you. Staying local this New Years can also help you save and it is much easier to get around.

Happy New Years from everyone here at RewardIt, please remember to celebrate responsibly.
