Tara’s Game Day Challenge

Finding ways to cut costs is essential in today’s economy.  Walmart has launched a new app on their facebook page called Nice Save.  You’ll be faced with a new challenge every few weeks and everyone will submit their solutions. It’s all in Walmart’s effort to offer low prices and low cost solutions.  It’s a great way to share ideas and you’ll probably get some new ideas to create!  This time around, because it’s football season of course, they have a game day challenge with Tara from Deal Seeking Mom as the host.


Some solutions are as simple as ribs and floats, which happens to be something I’d do and there are some that go into detail.  One of my favorites though, was the Taco Bar (submitted by Leona Harris).  I think most people think about the usual ribs, hamburgers and hotdogs for game day but I think Tacos would spice things up a bit and it’s a super easy solution.  After thinking about what ingredients it would take, etc, I can see it fitting in our budget nicely.  The only thing I think I’ll add to mine is a Nacho bar too.


  • Corn tortillas/homemade tortillas
  • Ground beef with taco seasoning
  • Pot of beans
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Shredded cheese
  • diced tomatoes
  • Black Olives
  • Velveeta with a can of Rotel
  • homemade hot sauce
  • Sour Cream
  • Fresh Guacamole

We’ll just serve tea!

So what would YOUR game day party be like, keeping the $50 budget in mind?  If you need some ideas, check out all the solutions on the Nice Save tab and be sure to submit your own as well!!

    We love taco bars! YUMMY!

    One of my stand-bys is chili with all the fixins. I make a basic pot of chili but then serve up hotdogs, buns, saltine crackers, oyster crackers, fritos, shredded cheese, chopped onion, sour cream, pickled jalapeno, spaghetti noodles, elbow macaroni noodles, and whatever else I come up with to go along with it. This way everyone can make it just the way they like. My grandma used to do this actually.
