Saving on Graduation Parties and Gifts

School is out for our oldest son next week and he's graduating from the 6th grade. Yeah, they have graduations in 6th grade. We're not doing a party, but that doesn't mean I haven't already started thinking for the one we will throw in 6 years (GASP – in just 6 years!).

I shared a few tips on how to save if you're throwing a graduation party, as well as different gift ideas you may consider. You don't have to always give cash to make it meaningful. And, remember, think about what you already have in the house… curious on that one? Visit my post on Graduation Savings for Gifts and Parties and see what I suggest. Please DO leave your ideas too! I'm gonna need more in the next 6 (gulp) years!
