Budget-Friendly Ways to Get Ready for Independence Day

June 26, 2019

From outdoor activities and barbecues to parades and fireworks, Independence Day offers many ways to spend quality time with friends and family while celebrating America’s birthday. Celebrating the Fourth of July doesn’t have to break the bank when planning festivities as Dollar General has all the necessary items for a fun, affordable holiday.

Food and Snacks
Fire up the grill this Independence Day! Discover delicious, easy recipes with DG Easy Meals like this 57 Sauce Marinated Shrimp recipe that takes less than 15 minutes from prep to table. Find additional affordable sides and snacks at your local Dollar General store as well. Become the MVP of snacks at the barbecue by shopping private brands like Clover Valley™ or national brands like Pringles®, Lays® and Doritos®. Don’t forget the drinks! Stock up on extra water bottles to make sure family and friends stay hydrated.

Summer can also be a great time to refresh your grill tools, especially when preparing for a big barbecue. From grill brushes to chrome tongs, find grill tools online or at your local Dollar General. A big bag of charcoal can also be a great addition to the basket as it may last all season and provide value.

Tableware and Utensils
Consider stocking up on budget-friendly disposable utensils, plates, garbage bags and cleaning supplies. Sticking to disposable items can help save time when cleaning up. Get creative by mixing patriotic colors like red, white and blue when selecting tableware and utensils. Discover affordable party decorations like balloons, streamers and hanging tissue paper decorations to take your Fourth of July get-together to the next level of festive. Dollar General offers quality, name-brand products and a variety of private brand merchandise with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if a customer isn’t fully satisfied, they may return it for a full refund.

Fun in the Sun
Make the day memorable with summer and swim toys that will be sure to provide entertainment all day long! This ring toss water game can be a great way to stay cool in the summer sun, or slide into fun with a classic water slide!
