Ideas for entertaining

Entertaining doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. In fact, you can throw dinner parties and get-togethers in your home on a very tight budget. I know because I do it all the time!

My first tip for entertaining on a budget is to know where to shop. I usually do the bulk of my shopping at ALDI or another discount grocery store. The prices at ALDI really are lower than most grocery stores. Then, I do the rest of my shopping elsewhere, if I can’t find everything at the discount supermarket.

Another tip for entertaining on a budget? Ask your party guests to pitch in. A lot of times, guests will ask if they can bring something. And I’ve found that most of them are happy to pitch in and try a new recipe – or make an old favorite.

Of course, you’ll want to choose cheap recipes that taste great. And that’s why you’re here! Cheap Recipe Blog has more than 500 budget-friendly recipes.

A great party option is to create a charcuterie board on a budget. Check out the 30-second appetizers for some SUPER quick appetizer ideas.

Another tip for entertaining on a budget: Keep your menu simple. The more dishes you have, the more money you’ll spend. Focus on creating just a few delicious dishes.
