As football’s big game draws closer, many fans are looking for ways to host the perfect party without fumbling a lot of cash.

The discount experts at Dollar General are offering tips to help hosts throw touchdown-worthy bashes at savings to cheer about.


One of the easiest ways to save money when planning a party is to let your guests contribute to the fun. Creating a tailgate potluck is a great way to sample other party-goers’ best recipes while taking the stress out of providing enough food for everyone in attendance.

Score Deals Ahead of Time

If you know a big party is in your future, plan your grocery list for the party a few weeks ahead of time. Some items like chips, dip and canned food items have a long shelf-life and can be purchased before the rush of other party goers. Keep track with coupons on your most-needed items through a digital coupon program like the one offered at Dollar General.

Stock up on Paper Products

One of the most time-consuming duties after throwing a party is cleaning up. Save time by buying disposable plates, cups and plastic ware for your guests to use. And don’t forget the paper towels! Stock up on paper products to clean up those spills made during exciting moments in the game.

A discount retailer like Dollar General can save you time and money on essential items you need to get in the game.

This big game, have a party playbook for thriftier hosting.
