The fourth of July is a great time to get together with friends and family. Here are some tips for celebrating our nation’s independence, while staying on budget.
Use DIY or dollar store decorations. Thanks to your local dollar store, it’s easier than ever to stretch your decoration dollars. Before you empty your wallet on patriotic decorations at the big box stores, see if you can give the holiday a personal touch with some simple DIY projects. If you don’t have enough time to get crafty, swing by the dollar store and load up your cart for less.
Fire up the grill! There’s no better way to celebrate Independence Day than having a cookout with loved ones. Click here to read our recent blog post for inexpensive barbecue ideas the entire family will enjoy.
Have some backyard fun. Avoid the entrance fees at the beach and create your own fourth of July “oasis” in the backyard! Set up yard games, turn on your party playlist and end the night with sparklers.
Go on a camping trip. And remember – always borrow before you buy! Check with family or friends first to see if you can borrow something that you will only need for the weekend, before you consider purchasing it. Click here to read our blog article for ways to enjoy camping on a budget.
