How to Save on July 4th Supplies

30 Jun

I love me some Fourth of July festivities! Every year I join my extended family in SoCal and soak up the sunshine poolside while munching on seven-layer dip and my grandma’s potato salad. Carbolicious!

My nostalgia for this time of year is why I loved sharing savings tips for July 4th essentials with Brooke Wagner and the rest of the Good Day Colorado team. Plus, it offered an excuse to make cupcakes with my mom’s special chocolate frosting recipe. It doesn’t hold up well in the sun as you’ll notice, but it still made for an amazing breakfast. You heard that right — cupcakes. For breakfast. BOOM.

    Great tips, Kendal. We spiked our iced tea with booze for a cheap party drink. 🙂 Also, I love your dress!

      Nice! I made fresh-squeezed lemonade using Meyer lemons from my grandma’s tree. Can’t beat homegrown California citrus! Thanks for the compliment on the dress – I love that frock, too.
