Friendsgiving on a Budget

Friendsgiving on a Budget

Friendsgiving is a great way to bring in the holidays! Don't let these cray-cray grocery prices stop you from celebrating Friendsgiving this year. There's a way to keep the good times rolling and experience less stress while on a budget, so call ya peeps and let them know its on like popcorn! We're even gonna spill the tea on DIY games that are sure to keep the fun vibes flowing!

Despite any financial constraints, Friendsgiving remains instrumental in providing support and fostering a sense of community for people who may feel isolated or separated from their families during the holiday season. Friendsgiving is a reminder  that you don't have to be alone during a time traditionally centered around family gatherings. By emphasizing the spirit of togetherness and gratitude, Friendsgiving enables individuals to create their own familial bonds and celebrate the warmth of companionship even in the absence of blood relations. 

So, this is how you host a Friendsgiving without breaking the bank. First of all, put a list together of all the dishes your friends are good at making, this way you can create a flavorful potluck experience to ensure everything is bussin! Don't let ya friends recommend a dish that you haven't tried before, we ain't got time fa that! There will be no taste testing on the day of, FRFR! 

You are the hostess with the mostess, and should not be stressing on last minute errands. Don't sweat your hair out or break a nail doing the most. That's what the non-cooks are for, you know, the one's that's always asking if the food is ready every 5 minutes. 

Keep them on call, have them grab the soda, dessert, water, ice, condiments, and whatever else you need or may have forgotten. Don't hesitate to send they a** back to the store if they buy them cheap plates instead of the heavy duty carry out plates with the food dividers. SMH, they know betta.. 


All you need is plastic cups for this fun game we named "Cups Up", a novelty game by Just Play Entertainment. It's always a classic hit! We played last year with my family and it was so fun and contagious, we couldn't stop playing! Place the cups upside down in a straight line on the floor. Try to be the first to grab the cup in front of you. The judge will shout out in no particular order, head, shoulders, knees, etc. in any variation and for as long as he wishes. The players must touch whatever body part that the judge says. When the judge finally yells “cup”, the players race to grab the cup! The players who didn’t grab the cup is out of the game. Continue playing the game until there is one winner. Try our drinking version "Turn Up Cups Up" During every round, the person that doesn't grab a cup has to grab a drink!
