I finally have a living space larger than a shoebox & love entertaining... Lately, I've been maxing out my budget & there seems to be little to no wiggle room. Naturally, one of the things I tell myself I can't afford is hosting go are get togethers/dinner parties! But, I'm wondering if that really needs to be the case!
I typically do not like potluck events (hosting them) but am wondering if those are better than no event at all. Or, the alternative would be fewer and/or between events, with the menu crafted so as not to go crazy budget-wise.
Thoughts from those that have been in a similar situation?
