It’s that time of year again… G’s birthday is coming up!
As my little man plans to mark his fifth year, I have a party to organize. And, of course, pay for. He wanted gymnastics, so I called the nearest place. The cost? $270. On top of that, I will need to buy food, cake, and the highly-coveted and altogether essential goody bags. When all is said and done, this party will easily come in at $350.
I wondered: Is this normal? How much are other parents spending on their kids’ birthday parties? I couldn’t ask parents I know, so I instead asked the internet.
According to what I’ve found, the average parent spends right around $250 on a kid’s birthday party. Where do you fall?
