Over the years I’ve talked about ways to not bust your budget when planning your Super Bowl gatherings.

We’ve talked about using what you have for decorations — or even combing through your local dollar store for inexpensive football-themed accessories and prizes. (See: “Throw A Not-Super-Expensive Bowl Party”).

We tossed around the idea of buying generic or even throwing a potluck party. (See: “3 Steps To A Cheaper Super Bowl Party”).

And we’ve rallied around the idea of making group meals on the cheap. (See: “Recipes To Feed A Group Under $10″). This one isn’t bad for big families for everyday use, too.

Basically, we’ve tried to maximize your game day experience and minimize the price of it. To help you remember our favorite tips, just think of the phrase BIG GAME.

Buy generic.

Invent new ways to use what you have.

Get guests to bring a beverage.

Go to a dollar store.

Always buy bulk.

Make time to cut coupons.

Enjoy yourself!
