Frugal New Years Eve ideas
New Years’ Eve ideas.
While it might sound boring, staying home on New Year’s Eve can be just as enjoyable as going to some big, lavish party – not to mention a lot cheaper.
Sip some hot chocolate and watch the countdown on TV.
If you really want to host a New Year’s Eve party at your home, consider making it a potluck? Avoid a sit-down meal and just have a few finger foods such as sandwiches, raw fruit & veggies, pretzels, and some salad.
Ask each guest to bring one thing to serve – a fruit, a vegetable, a dessert, a drink, etc.
Instead of watching the countdown on TV, if the location is close enough to your home, why not go out there and celebrate in person? These events are often free to attend.
Just bring a mug of hot chocolate and dress warmly. Counting down to the near year with hundreds (or thousands!) of other people can be so much fun.
Don’t buy expensive fireworks for your celebration – buy some cheap sparklers instead. Everyone can run around outside with them.
Try writing your name in the air with your sparkler, that’s always fun!
