Your Super Bowl party doesn't have to be super expensive!  Try some of these frugal Super Bowl party ideas.Hosting a Super Bowl party doesn’t have to be super expensive. There are things you can do to cut down on the cost without sacrificing any of the fun. Here are a few ideas that will help you have a frugal Super Bowl party.

Frugal Super Bowl Party Ideas

Order some Pizza
A simple way to save money on party food is to order some pizzas. One large pizza can feed at least three adults. Call ahead to your favorite pizza place and see if they have any Super Bowl deals going on. Find out if they deliver or if you have to go get the pizza yourself. You can’t go wrong with pizza!

Skip the “Party Tray”
Don’t buy the “party tray” at the grocery store. You can put together one yourself for less money. Buy some fresh vegetables and cut them into bite sized pieces. Arrange them nicely on a decorative plate. Open a container of dip and put it in the middle of the veggies.

It is super simple to put together a cheese and cracker tray. Buy some blocks of cheese. Select more than one type. Cheddar is always a hit. Cut the cheese into cubes. Pick up a box or two of tasty crackers. Line everything up on a plate. It will cost less than the “party tray” that has the same stuff in it.

Use Real Dishes
Your Super Bowl party is taking place in your house, and you have plenty of nice dishes. You can use them for free. Doing so allows you to save money because you won’t be buying paper plates and plastic forks.

Nobody is going to complain about having to use a “real” plate instead of a paper one. Another advantage of using real dishes is that they are strong and sturdy. Your guests can safely pile food on them without having to worry about a collapse.

B.Y.O.B.
It is perfectly acceptable to ask guests to “bring your own beverage”. Make sure your party invitations clearly state this expectation. You may want to let people know that you will be serving soda, and that those who want alcohol are welcome to bring it with them.

Go ahead and pick up some 2-liter bottles of soda. Guests who would like a drink that includes alcohol can bring their own. This cuts down on the cost of the Super Bowl party. It also allows guests to opt for whatever type of drink they are comfortable with.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
