3 Independence Day Savings Tips From Hawaii’s Online Banking Professionals

1. Take Care of the Cooking

Online banking Honolulu HIEating out and ordering food delivery adds up — especially if you have a large group coming over to celebrate the holiday. Cooking food at home is a more affordable option. According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, a 10-person cookout in 2016 was 3% less expensive than the year before, with the total cost coming to $55.84 on average.

2. Watch Fireworks for Free

Fireworks in Hawaii can be handled only by permit holders. Fortunately, there are many fantastic and free Fourth of July pyrotechnic displays you can enjoy, sparing you the expense of purchasing fireworks and a permit. On Oahu, check out the show at Ala Moana Beach Park in Honolulu — it's the biggest in Hawaii.  On Maui, take in the festivities in Lahaina.

3. Create Your Own Outfits

It’s a Fourth of July tradition to wear red, white, and blue, but you don’t have to head to a store to buy Independence Day-themed clothing. Simply use white undershirts you already own or buy an inexpensive pack of them and dress them up with paint, iron-on decals, stickers, colored tape, and other decorative items.

This Fourth of July, remember that managing your money wisely is the key to financial independence.
