The holiday season brings an abundance of feelings that could include joy, comfort, gratitude and, unfortunately, stress.

Don’t let the task of entertaining friends and family break the bank or your back.

Instead, create memorable gatherings with loved ones while saving time and money in the process using these hosting tips.

Delicate decor

Creating the right ambiance in your space is key to holiday decorating success.

Begin by decluttering the areas of your home where you plan to entertain. Fill the extra spaces with seasonal decorations.

Remember, elaborate, expensive items aren’t always needed to make a home look amazing.

Decorations like small figurines, bowls filled with holiday candy or simple wreaths and garlands can do the trick of transforming your home into a winter wonderland.

Fruitful food

With more guests comes more food, but it doesn’t have to mean spending more money.

Shopping at discount retailers for essentials such as milk, eggs, bread and cheese can help stretch your budget.

You also can make the switch to private brand items and save even more when buying foods for overnight guests, such as granola bars, cereal and snacks.

Supplies stock-up

Of course, to entertain, you will need supplies.

Stocking up on cleaning essentials, everyday cooking ingredients and entertaining basics early in the season is a great way to have everything needed before the party begins.

Consider adding items such as trash bags, cutlery, paper products, other decorations and even small gifts.
