If your children’s birthday parties are putting a hurt on your budget, there’s a simple solution—have the party during the week instead of on a weekend. Sure, everyone wants a weekend party, and that’s why restaurants and other popular birthday locales charge a lot more for Saturday and Sunday events. They’ll be only too happy to accommodate your request for a weekday party, and it might even be easier for you, too—just offer to pick up your child’s playmates from school that afternoon and have them picked up from the party later. Your child will have just as much fun as they would at a weekend party, maybe even more, since it’s a rare weekday treat.
