It's OFFICIALLY July 4th weekend and if you don't have any plans to attend a cookout, then you might want to throw one of your own because it's not that expensive according to a new survey!

According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, the average cookout this weekend will only set the host back a total of about $59.50!

The average was based on 160 volunteer shoppers across the US and $59.50 can get you pretty far for a cookout. If you spent your money wisely, you could get the following:

  • 2 pints of strawberries, $5.30
  • 13-ounce bag of chocolate chip cookies, $4.02
  • 8 hamburger buns, $1.66
  • 2.5 pounds of homemade potato salad, $2.75
  • 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, $6.74
  • 32 ounces of pork & beans, $1.90
  • 2 pounds of ground beef, $8.20
  • Half-gallon of vanilla ice cream, $4.69
  • 3 pounds of center cut pork chops, $11.63
  • 2.5 quarts of fresh-squeezed lemonade, $3.65
  • 1 pound of sliced cheese, $4.05
  • 13-ounce bag of potato chips, $4.93

Obviously, your mileage may vary, but this might be the cheapest holiday to host at your home if you're looking to save money!
