Tailgating Tips

It’s football season and that means tailgating! We all enjoy a good tailgate, but you don’t have to spend a lot of cash to make it successful (and fun!). Here are a few tips to save you some green while you cheer on your team.

Get a game plan. Know how many people you expect and plan (and spend) accordingly. This will help you to avoid buying too much or too little. Don’t forget to try discount stores!

Shop early. Not only are you more likely to get the best deal, you won’t have to worry about creating a different dish if an item is sold out. Remember, don’t ever go to the store hungry – you’ll spend a lot more than you planned!

Keep it simple. There are plenty of inexpensive snack options that everyone will love including pretzels, nuts, chips and dip.

Team up. Potlucks are a great way to help save you money, time and stress! And if you’re driving to the game, try carpooling to save on gas and parking fees.
