That's a little insane.
Before you blow your paycheck on green beer and beads, we reached out to Jon Lal, founder of coupon site BeFrugal.com, for a few ways to save:
1. Don't waste your money on green threads. Look at your closet instead to see what you already own. If you do not have green clothing, perhaps you have a Notre Dame Fighting Irish or Celtics jersey.
2. Look for deals on March 18. Instead of buying tons of shamrock decorations, pull out anything green you already own. A little creativity can save a lot of cash. If you host a St. Patty’s Day party annually, head to the party store the day after the holiday this year and score décor on clearance to use next year.
