Are you hosting a party for Superbowl Sunday? Excited, but not wanting looking forward to the expensive bill that comes with throwing a party? With these simple tips, you can save money and throw a great Superbowl party!
Look for coupons and mark down specials
Generally, all stores have some type of promotional sale going on during the Superbowl. Many stores (Publix, Albertson’s, any grocery store , etc.) will have deal or coupons specifically made for the Superbowl. Look for coupons in the store’s brochure or in the paper for the specific items you need to purchase. Look for deals such as 2 for 1’s or sales on specific items. Every little bit helps.
Save money on Food.
Making your own food compared to buying from a store will save a lot of money. From making your own pizza, to making your own wings. All the ingredients for a homemade pizza amount to a little over 7 dollars. Where as a large pizza from a restaurant / pizza business can cost anywhere from 10 – 15 dollars. When you have to buy more than one, the savings really start to add up!
You can also make your party a pot luck party. This is where the guests of the party brings their own dish to the party. To avoid confusion, it is a good idea for the host to assign a general idea to the guests. Such as one person a dessert, another person appetizer, etc. This avoids everyone bringing the same dish.

It ensures the guests have their own favorite beverage and B. It saves money because soda drinks (Coca-Cola, Pepsi, etc.) and water quite inexpensive compared to buying alcohol products.
