How can you cut costs on the food you serve at your New Year's Eve bash?
“Pasta is my answer,” says Broxton. “The pasta is a break from the traditional holiday fare and it is cheap, soaks up the alcohol and can be made in advance.”
Teri Gault, CEO of TheGroceryGame.com
, says you should let the specials at the store dictate your party fare. Gault advises hosts to buy as much as the store will let them if there are limits on items, to stock up early and start shopping now.
"Buy extra low-priced stuffing, canned foods, creamed soups, etc. when they’re on sale in December, and use them for your New Year’s Eve menu,” says Gault. She also advises “stacking” discounts – buying sale items with multiple store and manufacturer’s coupons.
