The No1 myth about party bags that I hear pretty regularly is:
Making my own party bags (as opposed to buying them) will be cheaper!
NOT True!...And before anyone screams “lies, lies, lies…Mad Marc is going to say Sublime Science bags are the cheapest!...hold on a sec…
Sublime Science party bags are NOT the cheapest. They are awesome (certainly!) and the best value (in my opinion!) but not the cheapest. Now back to the Myth.
If you don’t factor in your own time and petrol driving around all over the place you might be able to pull some party bags together (that are probably not as good!) for around the same price.
The ‘thing’ is people always underestimate how much time and money making your own party bags will cost!
Party bags really need to have 4 “things” in them - plus a lovely bag to put them in so that’s 5 things. Adding up the price of those 5 items is often more than people think - a chocolate bar is 60p nowadays so 5 of those per bag (these would be the worst party bags ever!) would still cost £3 each.
You’ll obviously want to do better than that!
I’m not saying you absolutely have to buy party bags but just don’t think that you’ll manage to save more than a couple of quid (or they may even cost a lot more!) if you put your own together!
The important factor is, will you enjoy putting your own together? If you’ve got the spare time and you’ll enjoy doing it then get creative and seek out things to buy in good time.
If that’s not really your idea of fun save yourself a bunch of time, hassle and maybe some money too and buy some awesome bags!
P.S. - We received this email about our science themed party bags the other day:
