Ask your family and friends to contribute. Everyone loves fireworks and barbecue on Independence Day, but those costs can add up if you have to foot the bill on your own. Instead, send out requests to your guests to bring their own supplies. Whether it’s sparklers or hamburger buns, having everyone contribute to the event will save plenty of money.
