When you are hosting a party at your house, don’t bother spending the money on bagged ice from the store. save your money and make your own ice cubes.
About a week before the party, make a habit of filling up your ice cube tray twice a day. Do it in the morning and evening. When the ice is frozen, simply popped it into a plastic bag and pop it back in the freezer until the party. And twice a day you will be adding more and more ice bag and you’ll have more than enough for your party.
If you’re expecting a lot of guests, start two or three weeks in advance.
If you host a lot of parties, watch the dollar store for shaped ice cube tray. If you can pick them up three for a dollar, you can make quite an impression at your next party when drinks are filled with ice cubes shaped like stars or hearts.
