Cinco de Mayo is here! That’s right, a holiday rich in battle, celebration, and best of all, drinking! Although you may know Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory of the French in the 1800’s, you’d be surprised to discover that it also serves as one of the biggest non-winter drinking days! But, before you start signing up to donate plasma for some extra cash, check out these Cinco de Mayo budget savers!
This one is a no-brainer. We’re in college and we’re just trying to function. Outsource the alcohol to your guests and your wallet will be sleeping soundly tonight!
It’s not a Cinco de Mayo celebration if you’re lacking tacos. Taco shells, beans, ground beef, and shredded cheese are all you need to get the Build-Your-Own-Taco ball rolling!
The way your bank account works doesn’t accommodate for a personal DJ and sound system? Connect your laptop to your TV’s HDMI port and pick a preselected Spotify playlist!
Now, you may be thinking, “I don’t think I want to clean up after a piñata,” but curb-stomping a piñata might just be exactly what your guests need to release final exam anxiety!
You may not want to charge admission for your party, but it doesn’t always have to be money. Tell your guests to bring snacks, drinks, utensils, cups, etc. You’ll be amazed what hungry college kids will bring for a good time!
