Football season is coming up and fast! Football watching parties are pretty big every Sunday (and Saturday for you college football fans). Tailgating is also pretty big each weekend there is a game. Now I don't know about you, but I'm not into making huge complex recipes when I have to cook out of the back of a truck (or in some cases on the outside burner of my RV), So I have a list of easy tailgating food ideas for you!

I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
