This is the second week in a row my 11 yr old daughter (going on 19) has been invited to a birthday party for a friend at school. I'm glad she has friends, and that they are kind enough to invite her to their birthday parties, but at what cost?
I mean $$$!!!
Buying presents for friends (especially GIRLS) every week can add up.
What limit do I set for said presents?
Do we make something thoughtful and homemade?
Do we take a trip to the Dollar Store every week?
Do I buy in Bulk?
I keep telling my daughter that we need to keep the cost under $10, and that includes the wrapping paper, gift bag and tissue paper. I don't want to be cheap, but I don't want to Break the Bank either. We have a budget people!!
Is $10 too much or too little???
Please, let me know what you think. I am sure I have a lifetime of birthday parties to prepare for. Save me now, before I BUST!!!
