For most Americans, Super Bowl Sunday has nothing to do with football. Chances are your team isn’t playing, and unless you have a financial stake involved, the day is really just all about the party. Americans nationwide will be celebrating for the big game, and if you’re careful, you can be one of the few to do it without a (debt) hangover on Monday.
Joanie Demer and Heather Wheeler are the brains behind The Krazy Coupon Lady, and as expert shoppers and savers, they have some great ways for you to save on all those Super Bowl supplies.
Plan menu around deals
There are so many kinds of chips, dips and other party snacks, so a great way to save on those munchies is to buy the brands that are on sale! The Krazy Coupon Lady experts say look for markdowns on various types of snacks, and then you can use coupons to save even more on those sale items.

Drugstores usually aren’t the best place to do your grocery shopping, however, The Krazy Coupon Lady gals say drugstores often have the best markdowns on snack foods like chips, soda and candy. So when you're stocking up for a party, the drugstore could be the cheapest place to do it.
Buy in bulk
Sometimes it isn’t convenient to buy large quantities of food and other supplies, but if you’re buying for a Super Bowl party, or any party, you probably need to buy more than usual. So the ladies behind The Krazy Coupon Lady say if the prices are better, go ahead and purchase larger quantities of snacks and freeze what you don’t use for later. Vegetables, fruit, and even chips and crackers can be frozen and eaten in the future.
Yes, it’s so much easier to buy the pre-made dips, but you’ll spend a whole lot more! The Krazy Coupon Lady experts say you can save about 40% if you take the time to make these dishes at home. So set aside a couple of hours and chop up your own fruit and vegetables or make chili in a crock pot, and it can be fun if you do it with a friend before the big game.
Save on team gear
It’s fun to have all the necessary gear to wear to support your favorite teams, but jerseys and other sportswear usually aren’t cheap! The Krazy Coupon Lady gals say if you want to look the part, you can find great fan gear on Amazon. Since the game is right around the corner, look for items that qualify for free Super Saver shipping so you can get them quickly, without paying big bucks. And since this is a great way to save on fan gear for any game, plan ahead to make sure next time you need the gear, you can order it a few weeks in advance.
Guilt-free TV upgrade
Retailers often clear out older models, since many people buy new TVs for the big game, so you may be able to find a great TV for up to 30% off the regular price.
