I am ending my sophmore year and I hear some graduates saying they started planning end of freshman year to save money? Is this true? If so when should I start to plan my graduation party?

What kind of party are you expecting to have? The best way to save money on a party is to have a simple backyard barbecue.

I’m with @janbb who often reads my mind and I’m wondering what you’re planning? The idea is to have fun and celebrate your hard work. You can do that without spending a ton of money. Not that I’m against saving up for it, but I’m curious as to what you’re planning. :)

You should be planning for your retirement before you save for a graduation party.

I know this is in the “general” section but—
How much should a couple of six packs cost?

That’s what I did for College graduation.

Go ahead and start if you plan for it to be big!

Saving money is always a good idea. And as the time grows closer, you may have a change of mind on spending all that money for just one day when there are lots of fun ways to celebrate.

But then you’ll have a nice little nest egg for starting the next (most likely expensive) chapter of your life. You get to decide what to do with all the nice money saved. Blow it all in one day or have a little nest egg.
