Are you planning a big party for Memorial Day? Yesterday, my husband and I picked up some hamburgers and repaired the grill to get ready for the Summer. Can't wait for all the BBQ's coming up! In saying that, outdoor parties can cost a bundle if you don't plan accordingly. How do you save money on a cookout? Easy. It's all about Menu Planning!

When you are thinking about your cookout, be sure to plan your menu according to the sales. That means, if chicken is on sale then opt for chicken over ribs. Planning around sales will save you up to 50% on your meal without ever using a coupon.

Now, if you want to add to the savings, plan your menu around sales, coupons and your stockpile. It is that simple. Ask your guests to bring items too that way the cost is not all on you.

Happy Savings and Happy Memorial Day!
