Budget Friendly Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

Feeling lucky? Make sure your green is ready to go, as St. Patrick’s Day is this Saturday. If you find yourself on a budget, you’re not out of luck yet. There are plenty of fun ways to celebrate, even if you don’t have a lot to spend.

Whether you’re looking for green apparel, St. Patty’s Day decorations or even green food, Goodshop has the ideas (and deals!) for you.

Going Green

If you’re caught not wearing any green this Saturday, get ready to be pinched! But what if you don’t own anything green to wear? You don’t have to go and buy a whole new outfit just for the day. Include small touches of green so you can be sneaky and save some money. Throw on a green headband or wear green socks or even underwear. Another easy way to wear green? A fun and festive manicure!

St. Patty’s Feast

If you’re staying in but still want to celebrate, put together a classic Irish dinner. Start off with a warm loaf of Irish soda bread and finish with a minty grasshopper pie. Of course you can’t forget the main course and traditional Irish staple of corned beef and cabbage.

Drink Up

St. Patrick’s Day may be more commonly associated with beer, but that’s not the only drink you should have. Try your hand at making your own cocktails, whether it’s Irish coffees, homemade Irish cream or a Guinness milkshake (or even a nonalcoholic mint milkshake!) You’ll avoid the crowds and keep more money in your wallet.
