    Wow Kimmi, this is incredibly awesome. I bet all the other parents would be really jealous if they knew how good you were at pulling something like this off. I hope your son has a fantastic birthday!

    That is impressive! Great shopping. I tried to do my daughters birthday on the cheap too. It was fun. For the treat bags we went to Claires for their buy 10 items for $10. Used money from surveys to pay for it. I do some that send me a cheque in the mail. So cash on hand. It was great fun. Plus we had some $2 off when you buy Old Dutch chips as well. And she is allergic to nuts, so a homemade cake it was. I got such joy from my thrifty party and the girls had alot of fun. I know yours will be super fun and you can brag to all the Moms there. Or pretend you spent a bucketful of money.

    A big hit at the last party was freshly home popped popcorn. Kids loved it and you can make a whole bag for cheap. Better for them than chips as well.
