Are you the person in your friend group who's always the one making plans and hosting partiesIf so, it might be costing you a lot of money..


A new survey found the average party has: 12 guests . . . takes about 10 hours of work . . . and costs almost $200 to put on.

The ten hours include 2 hours and 5 minutes of planning . . . 2 hours of shopping . . . 2 hours and 4 minutes to set up . . . 2 hours and 7 minutes of cooking . . . and 1 hour and 58 minutes to clean everything up.

----------

The average party costs $196.77.  That includes:  $67 on alcohol . . . $71 on food . . . and just under $60 on decorations.

Obviously if friends pitch in or bring stuff, then not all of it falls on one person.  But the survey found that when you tell people it's BYOB, only 45% actually bring alcohol... and if you pay for a lot of parties yourself, it adds up.

The average host throws about seven parties a year.  And if they pay for all of it, that adds up to $1,423 . . . or about $119 a month.

----------

And if you're INVITED to a party.... be sure you know the ten WORST things you can do at a party..


1.  Show up sick.

2.  Ask for food or a type of drink that isn't already out.

3.  Be the last one to leave.

4.  Get too drunk.

5.  Show up early.

6.  Be on your phone all night.

7.  Talk about politics too much.

8.  Show up without RSVPing.

9.  Spill something.

10.  Not bring food if it's a potluck.



The survey also looked at the most ANNOYING things the HOST of a party can do.  They include:  asking people to mingle . . . cleaning during the party . . . getting drunk . . . rushing people out the door . . . and not playing music.
