Low Cost Cinco de Mayo Staples

Posted on 05/03/2011

Planning a Cinco de Mayo bash? It’s a fun holiday and a great opportunity to infuse some Mexican culture into your party planning. While you may spend a pretty penny on tequila to keep the margaritas flowing, you can pick up other Cinco de Mayo staples for less.

Tortilla Chips - Tortilla chips are just one of those things you can’t have too much of when the 5th of May rolls around. Before you head to the grocery store, print off this coupon to save $1 on a bag of Garden of Eatin’ tortilla chips. Plus this week you can earn $5 in Extra Care Bucks at CVS when you buy $15 worth of products including Tostitos salsa, dips or chips.

Salsa - Need lots of salsa in a hurry? Head to Amazon.com where you can pick up two 38 ounce jars of Pace Chunky Salsa for just $10.95. Or pick up a three-pack of Suprema Medium Salsa for $5.85 from foodservicedirect.com.

Sombreros - You may not need a dozen sombreros the other 364 days of the year, but they’ll definitely come in handy on May 5th. Buy 12 embroidered adult-size hats for your fiesta for just $24.99 from OrientalTrading.com. Orders over $49 ship for free.

Pinata - No Cinco de Mayo party is complete without a piñata full of goodies and treats. Head to Pinatas.com to pick up a mini cactus piñata for less than $2 or a unicorn-shaped one for $7.79.

Plates and Glasses - Go festive with brightly colored plates, glasses and napkins from PartyCity.com. Almost everything in the Del Sol collection is at least half off. A 20-count of margarita glasses is only $8.99. But it’s up to you to keep them full.
