Here are some easy ways to save and still host an exciting game day event.

Don’t Do It Solo

Co-host this event with a friend. That way they not only share in the financial responsibilities but also in the setting up, cleaning up and all the stuff in between.

Invitations: Go Paperless

Paper invites are so two decades ago. Social media has many different ways to get your invite out there. Create an invitation on Facebook or online invitation site and send them through cyber space.

Tell Guests It’s BYODrinks

Have everyone bring their own soda or other beverages. Trying to plan everyone’s favorite beverage is not only time consuming but can really put a damper on your wallet.

Make it a Potluck Party

Have everyone bring a favorite appetizer to share – or even ask them to bring two. With so many great dishes coming you will only need to supply some beverages and maybe the tortilla chips for dips.

Don’t Use Paper Products

Use your own plates, glasses and utensils. You might have to run the dishwasher an extra cycle, but it will save the money from having to buy products that only get thrown away.

Hit Up the Dollar Store

The dollar store will have a lot of items you can use to decorate for the occasion and even some cheap alternatives to tablecloths, such as wrapping paper. Use your favorite team’s color wrapping paper to cover the tables.

Buy Food in Bulk

Freeze and reuse the extras later, so nothing goes to waste.
