Frugal Super Bowl Party Planning

Posted on January 29th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

It’s that time of year, again. The day you have lots of friends come over to watch commercials and eat a bunch of fun food, right? Oh, of course, there are those few who will want to watch the game that takes place between the commercials. I’m joking, mostly. ;) Did you know that you don’t have to be a big football fan to enjoy a good Super Bowl party. And you don’t have to spend a lot of money to host a good Super Bowl party!

Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you do your last-minute planning for this weekend’s big game.

1. Find the deals; then, plan your menu. Check out the deals at all your local stores (including drugstores) before making your menu. Your guests may not care very much about the brand of chips, crackers, or even cheese that you have at the party. And, they won’t care that you have frozen pizza bites in place of the quiche you had originally planned to have. Make your menu based on the best deals you can find.

2. Stock up while you’re at it. Some of the snack foods and frozen foods on sale right now will not be on sale again for quite some time. So, if there are foods that you buy anyway, this is the time to stock up.

3. Make it a BYOB party. There aren’t many ways around the expense of alcohol, and guests expect to bring something with them. There is no shame in asking them to bring their own alcoholic drinks with them. You can still provide soda, punch, or juice. But, allowing guests to bring their own drinks can help cut costs significantly.

Are you hosting a party this weekend? What do you do to keep costs down for the big game?

Natural Homemade Cold Remedies

Posted on January 28th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

cold flu text

Cold and flu season has struck our home. I was so relieved that both of our children were healthy enough for our entire family to go to church together on Sunday. Then, my daughter woke up congested and coughing. Two days later, my son was coughing, too. Here we go again…

Is it that way at your house these days?

Honey-Lemon Tea. Studies have shown that honey has antibacterial properties that help fight the common cold. It is also soothing to the throat and helps reduce inflammation, which may accompany a sore throat. As a matter of fact, my children’s pediatrician recommends a teaspoon of honey about a half hour before bed time to help ease that yucky night time cough. It has actually been proven to be more effective in preventing and reducing coughing than over the counter cough suppressants.

Elderberry Syrup. Elderberries have antibacterial and antiviral components to help fight off cold and flu symptoms. Check out this easy recipe for yummy elderberry syrup. If your children are like mine, they will remind you, if you forget to give it to them, because it’s yummy!

Cinnamon and Honey. Cinnamon also has antibacterial qualities to fight off colds, especially at first signs of sickness. Add 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to a teaspoon of honey and you will have a tasty remedy that won’t be a struggle to get your children to take.

Homemade Bone Broth. Grandma’s chicken soup may have seemed like just a comfort when you were sick. But science has backed up the immunity building properties of chicken broth. So enjoy that bowl or cup of broth, knowing it really is good for you and your children!

I had several “tea parties” yesterday with the children. I think that today, we will add a little “broth party” to the mix. In reality, it’s helping me get this good stuff in my body, too!

Thrifty and Healthy Super Bowl Snacks

Posted on January 27th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

super bowl with text

One of my favorite parts of a Super Bowl party is the snacks. I’m not much of a football fan (although I usually randomly pick a team I like for the big game), so the game itself is just a great excuse to spend time with friends and eat some fun snacks. It’s so easy, though, to end up spending quite a bit of money on Super Bowl party food. So, here are a few tips to help make your fun party both thrifty and healthy (or, at least, healthier).

Chop Your Own Veggies. It’s so easy to pick up a package of baby carrots or pre-cut carrots and celery. But chopping your own is easy and quick.

Make Your Own Dip. Pre-made dip can be full of preservatives and chemicals. Make your own dip using sour cream and onions. Here’s a super-easy recipe that looks better than any store bought onion dip! You could always make some homemade hummus, instead.

Bake Chicken Tenders. Who dictated that Buffalo wings were the standard Super Bowl snack? Honestly, I’ve never really been a big fan of Buffalo wings. It’s easy to prepare a much healthier option by baking chicken tenders. Here’s a recipe that is a nice alternative to the wings without sacrificing taste at all.

Other Ideas.

Black Bean Quesadillas. How about using beans to save money and calories? Our family loves black beans. Here’s a delicious (and nutritious) Super Bowl snack option!

Crispy Chickpeas. Here’s another thrifty healthy alternative. Nuts can be expensive to buy. But chickpeas are very reasonably priced. Make these crispy chickpeas and no one will miss the Blue Diamond almonds!

Who says that a big game should set you back on your new year’s resolutions to be healthier and more frugal? Enjoy the game, the snacks, and the extra money in the bank!
