How to Save on the Fourth of July

Grilling, hanging out with friends, and things blowing up: sounds like a recipe for a great time. The 4th of July might be one of the best holidays and is easily the highlight of my summer. I can still remember my first Fourth of July celebration. A few things have changed since then, namely I have to pay for my celebration now. I had never realized how expensive the 4th of July could be, but it’s the 4th of July you can’t just not celebrate. There are a lot of simple ways to save money and still have a great Fourth of July.

Host the celebration with friends.

That seems like a really obvious statement because no one wants to celebrate anything by themselves, yet it is one of the easiest ways to save money and we often forget this. When you’re hosting a party you always want to have plenty of food and drinks because nothing kills a party faster than hungry and thirsty guests. Supplying an entire party with drink and food can put a dent in your wallet, and this is where hosting a party with other people comes in handy. Divide up the priorities; you and your friends can decide who will bring the snacks, drinks, entrees, and deserts. It’s easy to see how this can save you money and it’s great for parties because it ensures a variety of food and drinks.

Reuse decorations

Decorations are what make parties special. You and a group of friends can always grill out and have a great time, but what makes that a little more unique are decorations. Decorations could put a dent in your pocket if you had to buy new ones for each party, but you don’t have to. The 4th only comes once a year and the theme never changes so you only need to buy decorations once and then you can reuse them for as long as you want. Also you might not want to go for the cheapest decorations because you are trying to reuse them, so buy decorations that will last more than one year. Stores like The Party Works have coupons that can really help you save on decorations.
