New Year's Eve is notorious for overpriced festivities. With the array of exorbitant themed dinners and club events for the taking, it's certainly easy to ring in the New Year broke. Instead, stay true to your frugal roots and throw a joyous gathering at home. This hardly means welcoming 2015 in bare-bones fashion. Take your cues from the list below and you'll start the year right, and on budget.
6 Steps to Throwing a New Year's Party on the Cheap
The cheapest entertainment is at the touch of your fingertips. For just a few dollars, you can download numerous apps that will bring party flair to your living room. Karaoke Tube will have you all singing over your Mac for only $11, far cheaper than a night out at a karaoke bar. Disco Brick and Hue Party transform background music into a light show for less than the price of a drink at an actual club. And New Year's Noise Maker will play Auld Lang Syne and blast New Year's sounds like horns and twirlers for less than a dollar.
