Go on a small road trip. Consider using this Memorial Day weekend as an excuse to get away – without blowing your budget! Taking a day trip or visiting nearby towns can be a frugal way to enjoy the long weekend.




Host a BBQ. Invite friends and family over to help you celebrate a fun and meaningful Memorial Day!Instead of tasking yourself with all of the cooking, ask everyone to bring a dish to pass. For inexpensive decorations, visit your local dollar store and find items like miniature American flags, confetti, and more patriotic décor!
