Your child's Bar or Bat Mitzvah is approaching and planning for it can be an overwhelming task. Don't fret; having a meaningful celebration is possible, even on a budget. Luckily, we've got some tips on how to save money on your venue, bar mitzvah invitations, and much more!

The first thing you need to do is to set a budget. Once that is done, you can start the planning process. Purchase a notebook and file folder to help you stay organized and on task.

The sooner you start planning for your Mitzvah celebration, the better. You'll be in competition with other Bar Mitzvahs, weddings, and Sweet Sixteens for vendors, so select your date and send out those all important Save-the-Date cards. After all, the focus is on your child's special day and he or she probably doesn't want to share the date with someone else.

Saturday evening celebrations are the most sought after times in the Bar Mitzvah business. To save some serious cash, consider booking on a Sunday or other less sought-after time. Not only will this save money on the venue, but other vendors as well.

Shopping online can save you some big bucks on your invitations, party favors and decorations. When doing your online search, include the word "discount" in your search terms. Most online retailers are reputable and can offer higher discounts because of low overhead costs. If you are leery of ordering online, research the company by checking how long they've been in business and their state's Better Business Bureau. The main point to remember is that you can get the same quality items online but at a huge savings.

Talk with past Mitzvah parents to find out about their experiences with vendors and to get recommendations. They'll be happy to share and you'll appreciate getting any helpful advice to assist you in your planning process.

With effective planning and savvy shopping skills, you'll be able to prepare for a special and memorable event that incorporates Jewish tradition with good times without breaking the bank!
