One of the ways that I keep party cost low is by by keeping a party box in my pantry. Whenever I come across a great deal on decorations, candy, plates and more I buy it even though a party might be months away. This means that once it is time to plan the party, I do not need to worry about the cost or finding the best deals.  A week or so before the party, I go to our local Dollar Tree for the final party shopping. 
I saved at least 50 percent than if I had shopped at Target, Party City or another store that sells party goods. 
My middle son is turning six next week, so today I stopped by the Dollar Tree to pick up the last supplies.

Yesterday I also went to get my son a small gift for his birthday with the $3 Toys R US coupon that he had received from the Toys R Us Club. My son loves sharks, so I got him a shark and then I added a bag of skittles that he could share with his brother to get the total above $3.
