4th of July On a Budget

Posted on July 3rd, 2013 by Discount Debbie

The 4th is upon us! That means BBQs, swimming, fireworks and spending money. Like most holidays, your wallet can get hit hard. Fireworks alone have a markup of around 200%! Make sure you check out the post we did last year about saving money on fireworks.  But fireworks aren’t the only way you can save money. Check out these other tips for saving money on this patriotic holiday.

1. Have a potluck. Don’t try to do a big BBQ all on your own. Instead spent it with friends or family and have everyone bring something. You still get to have fun and eat a great meal, but while saving money.

2. Check your town’s event calendar or the chamber of commerce calendar. The 4th is usually full of free events and parades. And who doesn’t love a parade!?

3. Go to a public fireworks display. This is another most likely free event your town may have. You don’t have to buy the fireworks, do the work to set them off or clean up the mess of them. Have someone else do all that and sit back and enjoy!

4. Make your own desserts. Don’t buy all the cutesy 4th of July desserts. It’s much cheaper to make your own. Check out THIS fruit pizza recipe. I had this several years ago at a 4th of July party and now I have to have it every year. It’s so cheap to make too!

How do you plan on saving money this 4th of July?
