Saving You Money
I'm Saving You Money on your Super Bowl party. It's just a little over a week away and over 61 million plan to attend a Super Bowl Party according to Bloomberg Business. If you're hosting, don't use it as an excuse to upgrade to a better TV. Yes, retailers mark down TV's about 20% leading up to the big game, but they mark them down even more in March according to CNN Money. That's when the newer models are released. Stay disciplined and you'll have plenty to cheer about.
When it comes to supplies and utensils, check your nearest Dollar Store or snag party supply coupons. Couponmountain.com is a good resource for this.
If wings were on the menu, you may want to look for a cheaper alternative like chili. The American Chicken Council says it may be tougher to find wings. Record high corn prices, which is what chickens eat, have created higher chicken prices and a smaller supply.
Finally, if you're serving wine, just know Two Buck Chuck is going up. Trader Joe's cheap vino will now cost you $2.40. That's a 50 cent increase. Harsh weather affected the grapes and increased the price.
Also to save money, just ask your guests to bring a dish and BYOB -- Bring Your Own Beverage.
