Day 12. Money-Honey: I Don’t Have the Stuff and RE BOOK Giveaway!
I’ve heard from many readers who write to me and say they just can’t afford to entertain. I certainly don’t want to go through life, and then wonder if it could have been richer and fuller, knowing I could have reached out more.
My ideas here are very simple.
- Everyone has the ability to borrow
- Find a friend who won’t mind sharing
- Don’t forget Good Will & yard sales
- Delegate the menu–there’s no reason why you have to do it all
- Serve water and have the guests bring other drinks
Get it out of your mind that you have to spend a ton of money to entertain.
Saying “I don’t have the money” is just an excuse, most of the time.
This dinner party was of Easter this year. The plates I found at a yard sale, the glasses and vases were from the Dollar Store, and the fresh flowers were from my front yard.
Again, if you haven’t read the “Joy Busters” chapter in my new book, The Reluctant Entertainer, I think you might be challenged. And you may sense some freedom coming your way …
