What are your thoughts on home parties? I'm talking about the kind of party where you buy stuff, or are at least expected to buy stuff. I've gone to my fair share of home parties and even hosted two, but I've got mixed feelings. I'm going to a 31 party today and will likely buy something. My friend is hosting the party and I've looked at the catalogue on-line. The products are cute, but, honestly, a purse wasn't really on my list of things to buy right now.
I'm thinking these types of parties contribute to clutter and aren't frugal, but yet they seem to be a social obligation. I'd love to know what you think.
