Stocking Your Home Bar on a Budget

5 February 2009 One Comment

In a bad economy, owning your own tiki bar is as smart as ever.  As consumers worldwide tighten their belts and spend less on going out, you can save a bundle by staying in and mixing up those Zombies at home.

As with anything else, staying within a budget requires planning.  The Herald-Mail has a few suggestions on keeping your costs down when stocking your home bar.  The author suggests limiting your spend on mixers and using fresh ingredients to save a few bucks.  Of course, it is important to focus on liquors you really need when stocking your bar.  Pick out a few recipes with some common ingredients before hitting the liquor store.  The last thing you need when walking in is a credit card and great imagination.

One tip referenced in a previous post was to pick up one bottle of liquor with each paycheck.  This will keep some variety in your bar and help prevent you from walking out with $300 in booze.

Any other ideas on how to save money when stocking your home bar?  Sound off in the comments.
