Hi folks, J.G. Wentworth here. Want to throw a Super Bowl party on a budget? Here are six great tips to enjoy football, friends and food this Sunday without it causing too much damage to your bottom line.
1) Make it a potluck
You cook the main dish; let your guests bring everything else. You may be surprised how delicious your guests’ dishes are – and how much fun everyone will have sharing their food with others.
2) Check out newspaper coupons this week
Your local paper will be full of terrific offers from grocery stores and supermarkets on such standard party food- as chips, dips, drinks, and much more.
3) Buy in Bulk
Having lots of people over? Go to wholesalers or superstores like Costco to buy your large food items.
4) Avoid caterers or take-out restaurants
The surest way to spend too much money at a Super Bowl party? Buy food that’s been made elsewhere. Cook it yourself, keep your costs down – and offer your guests truly fresh and delicious food you’ve spent your own time preparing.
5) Make the party BYOB
Even if you don’t want to go potluck this year, at least make the drinks potluck. And after the game, make sure everyone drives home safely!
6) Stick to the classics
Twice-baked potatoes, nachos, chili, macaroni and cheese, hamburgers and hot dogs – there’s a reason these are party standards, and no better time to enjoy them than a classic American day like Super Bowl Sunday. Remember, it’s not New Year’s Eve – there’s no need to be fancy!
We hope these six tips will help you plan a terrific yet affordable Super Bowl party menu. And who cares if the game ends up being a blowout; after all, there are always the commercials, right?
