Getting our House Ready for the Big Game #GameDayTraditions @SheSpeaksUp, @ProcterGamble @Walmart #sp

Football is not just a sport around here, it’s a season. It’s all about the touchdowns, the scores, and yelling back at the television screen. When it comes to the Big Game, things start to get a little more serious, but also a lot more fun. This year, it is our turn to host friends and family to watch the Big Game. When it comes hosting at our house, I put a lot of thought into preparing. The first thing I do is to shop Walmart for Pre-Game, Game time and Post-Game supplies.


You can never be too prepared to tackle spills, drips, or even odors when you’re planning to have a house full of football fans. I try to buy in bulk, or large packages because you never know what life is going to bring. Also, I hate running out of a necessary product, like paper towels or toilet paper. No one wants to make a store run in the middle of a party. All of these products are equally important on the Big Game Day.

Having three pets, I like to be sure our home is odor free, and ready for company. For that I count on Febreze Air Effects Linen & Sky. Eliminates tough odors rather than covering them up, and leave a nice gentle clean scent.


Our Game Day Traditions include adults acting like teenagers, judging and discussing of commercials (my favorite part of the day), and lot’s and lot’s of good home-cooked food. Like my extra sloppy pulled pork. Slow cooked for ten hours in home-made barbecue sauce. It is delicious! The sloppier the better, so we always have a good napkin or paper towel on hand. For us, we only use Bounty with it’s unique Trap & Lock technology. It tackles the toughest sauce covered fingers and faces, and wins every-time!

For those sloppy messes that make it past the paper towel, and onto my husband’s shirt or pants while he’s looking (or yelling) at the game – we use Tide Pods. They have gotten out even the toughest stains. We have been using Tide Pods for about a year now, and I am still amazed at how well they clean our clothes.

    Your crockpot dish sounds yummy. My dad and I like to watch football together, although mostly UM football and not the Big Game.

  3. I don’t have a tradition, except to visit other people’s parties!!! and bring something tasty!!

    Love Pulled Pork sandwiches. Love the P & G products. Use Febreze, Tide Pods. I make loaded Nachos, and we have chicken wings and other finger foods with it. Even though my team is not in the Super bowl this year, I can not wait to see who wins. I am think Carolina will win, but I want the Denver Broncos to win!

  5. Birdiebee says:

    My game day tradition is to make a lot of appetizers as well as having several slower cookers full of various types of foods for all of my guests. I love to cook and entertain.

  6. This year no big plans for the “Big Game” other than flippin on the TV and watching it with my wife and kids.

  7. I feel prepared now – I got that exact crock pot for Christmas based on someone else’s recommendation 😉 Thanks for the great suggestions for game day! We aren’t really ‘sports’ people and don’t have any traditions of our own.

  8. We’re totally pizza, wings and alcoholic beverage people. We love inviting friends and family over to enjoy it with us.

  9. Ron Leyba says:

    Preparations are a MUST for the big GAME DAY. This is awesome and truly practical idea. 🙂

  10. We’re not a sports family. If we do watch anything it would be just for the commercials.

  11. Cynthia R says:

    We normally have every chip and dip you can think of and some hot dogs.

  12. Betsy Rubendall Barnes says:

    One of our biggest game day tradition, we always have chili in my slow cooker with shredded cheese, chopped onions and sour cream for toppings 🙂

  13. I can’t wait for the superbowl, so exciting.

  14. I cannot wait for game day!
