    The only thing I disagree is with the fact that I splurge most on snacks than beverages

  • adarst213 By adarst213

    I agree and I like to splurge on items that set the ambiance like candles, etc.

    We go through many different things in our house since I have 3 kids and when their friends come over and they do their cupcake challenges, they can get messy.

    My grocery stores are far more convenient than Walmart so I shop there the most (Walmart is my online shopping, less in-store). I can see why the results are as shown. I tend to buy beverages, chips/salty snacks , cheeses and ingredients to make my own foods when hosting. I'm not a prepackaged kinda host. My splurge hosting food is probably the main course meats (I prefer quality and am willing to pay for it.)

    When entertaining, I splurge on good quality meat. We're not really big drinkers, so we focus on the food.

    I am all about Walmart. From serving pieces to party favors, food to decor, I can always find something fun and creative for any festivities.

  • mekia06 By mekia06

    I splurge on chips and paper products. I don't like cleaning u a big mess. I agree with the results. I like to buy everything and fix it myself than getting platters.

  • zekthezookeeper1967 By zekthezookeeper1967

    I agree. You can't go wrong with cheese, crackers and chips!

  • Justmissash By Justmissash

    Yes this is totally my habits and it's cool to see what others buy too. Chips and Walmart are top choices and definitely anything considered a snacks! We love our food!

  • molivos By molivos

    I was surprised that people spend on paper products. I am trying for reusable plates/cups. I splurge on fancy candy/chocolates. I make sure that everyone has enough interesting, nutritious drinks like lemonade and iced tea, which I make myself.

  • basilandcatnip By basilandcatnip

    Results seem pretty spot on. I splurge on custom items for special guests coming, like their favorite pie or something to accommodate special allergy or need.
