Bonfire Night on a Budget

Divider

Halloween is over: now it’s November and time for Bonfire Night! With Christmas just around the corner, you’ve probably started to think about budgeting for presents, but Bonfire Night doesn’t need to cost you a fortune.

Here are some useful tips on celebrating on a budget, and most importantly – how to stay safe.

Choosing fireworks

There are many different types of fireworks out there, but how do you know which ones are best for you? Here’s some of the most common you’ll find in the shops and what they do:

Buying fireworks

Once you’ve selected the fireworks you’re looking to use, you’ll want to find the best deal. Unfortunately, the sale of fireworks is limited online, so you’ll have to pick them up in a shop. The major supermarkets usually have the best deals on individual fireworks and pre-made collections as well.

Tesco, Asda, Aldi and Lidl are all great places to find the best deals, but also make sure to check out DIY shops like Homebase and B&Q.

Staying safe

Don’t have the budget for fireworks? Don’t worry!
