Football Season is quickly approaching and high school, college and NFL fans nationwide are preparing to throw the most epic tailgates of the season. According to a recent Bank of America study, 77% of respondents will host at least one tailgate this fall. One in four people hosting a tailgate this season will spend over $100 on each party, and with the packed game schedules that can add up. So, how can the most devoted fans throw the best tailgates on a budget?

Travel Channel food expert and TV personality Adam Richman provides tips for throwing the ultimate tailgate that is affordable for everyone's budget.  Some of his tips include:

BUY IN BULK: Shop at discount stores to pay less for essential tailgate items like hamburgers and hotdogs. Freeze what you don't use and use it for the next pre-game party.

MULTI-TASK: Look for tailgate supplies that can do double duty and get more out of what you bring to the game

CHARGE IT: Take advantage of rewards credit cards to earn cash back on essential tailgate purchases. Look for cards that will give you greater cash back in tailgate-related categories like groceries and gas.

KNOW THE RULES: Each stadium has different rules around tailgating. Do your research so you don't put a damper on the game day fun.
