It’s almost time for The Big Game!
Superbowl Sunday is coming up and while it’s not a huge deal in our house, we do like to watch the game on TV. I mainly watch it for the commercials. Am I the only one?
However, some pretty big parties are thrown for the Superbowl. And those parties can be expensive.
Are you looking for some great ways to throw a Superbowl party on the cheap? Well, look no further, because I’ve got you covered with these great tips on how to host a super frugal Superbowl party!
How to host a Superbowl party on the cheap
Consider a potluck
Ask guests to bring their favorite dish or favorite football foods to your frugal Superbowl party. If you send out invites online, ask people to RSVP with the dish they are bringing to avoid having the same dishes at the party. Serve the dishes buffet-style so all the food is gathered in one place.
Fix cheap recipes
Fix cheap recipes that make a lot of food, such as chili or soup. Any leftovers can be saved and used for lunch the next day. Finger sandwiches are also a great idea for a frugal Superbowl party.
Prepare your own side items
Vegetable trays and meat and cheese trays may save you time, but they are pricey. Buy fresh produce and chop your own vegetables to create your own tray. Do the same to create your own meat and cheese tray as well.
Buy generic chips and snacks
Buying brand name can get expensive, even if they are on sale. Buying generic saves money and if you pour the snacks into bowls your guests will never know the difference.
Have a friend co-host
Asking a friend to help you out with the frugal Superbowl party will save you both time and money. Split the costs of food and decorations and divide the housework and after-party cleanup.

Skip the fancy decorations
You may want the decorations with the team logos, but these can be costly. Skip the logos and go for team colors, instead. You can find inexpensive party supplies, such as streamers and confetti, at Dollar Tree or Walmart. Or you can even make your own decorations! This will keep your Superbowl party super frugal!
Use real dishes
Paper products can be so expensive and it feels like you’re just tossing money in the trash. Save money by using reusable dishes. If you don’t think you’ll have enough, shop thrift stores or dollar stores to save.
