Thrifty tailgating tips

Hosting a tailgate for an upcoming LSU or Saints game doesn't mean breaking the bank.


With football back in swing, hosting a tailgate before the big game can be costly. Jefferson Financial has some ways you can save:

1. Instead of fancy food, opt for crowd pleasers that feed masses like jambalaya or gumbo.

2. Simple, light beer does the trick. Just make sure it’s cold and you don’t run out.

3. Include your favorite people, and it’s sure to be a success. Invite guests in advance and ask people to bring something to add to the spread.

Bottom line? You don’t have to go on a spending spree for the best tailgate party on the block.
