I'm the person who is the annoying friend who always has party plan parties . I always get replies like " I don't need anymore plastic crap" etc and I'm fine with that . I want to catch up with people too so I always say no purchase necessary just come hang out . I mean it too . Be upfront and say they your not buying a thing .

It is hard. I always feel that people are looking at me if I decide not to buy something. Even if I have said that I didnt want anything from the beginning.
The parties can be fun though, if you can get over that feeling. Most people are genuine when they say they dont expect you to buy anything, and most people know that many of those products are pretty expensive.

I don't get the whole party plan thing anyway. Apart from tupperware, which is uber expensive but excellent quality, everything you can get at these parties you can get online or retail for a fraction of the price. And you have to wait weeks for it. Consultants make hardly anything unless they sell a massive amount, usually bc people feel pressured, and really, there's only so much make up/under wear/candles etc people need. In the experience of this girl I knew, she'd make a bit off the first party, hardly anything off a second, and no one would show to a third. She'd break even after buying those over priced 'starter packs'. Then move onto the next type of party plan. I'm pretty sure she made squat lol

I usually feel pressured to buy something but I went to one recently and I didn't buy anything and it was a great afternoon. When asked I said I'm feeling indecisive and I'll buy it later if I feel like it.

I hate product parties passionately! Most off my friends know my thoughts on them and often if they invite me now it's a courtesy invite prefaced with " I know you are going to come, but just so you don't feel left out..."
Be honest saves you so much hassel!

I have a friend who does Tupperware parties and a few other random ones like Christmas/greeting card parties and even when I go with the plan of not buying anything I regret going because they can be very boring if you aren't buying! And I never know the other guests.
Our other friend had the right idea and told our Tupperware friend straight out that she will never go to one of her parties - now she doesn't have to come up with excuses like I do every time!
My friend always traps me with "come anyway, it'll be fun just to catch up"...um not that way, it won't.
