Many thanks to Sam’s Club for sponsoring today’s post and helping me get ready for tailgating this football season.


Football season is upon us and that means tailgating season! Tailgating is such a fun activity as it allows everyone to socialize, eat, spend time together and then root on their favorite team. If you are wondering what are must haves for tailgating this season, look no further. Sam’s Club has you covered when it comes to tailgating essentials and their options will even save you some money!

For the novice tailgater, it’s nice to have a list beforehand so that you know don’t forget something. Here are my picks for must haves when you are tailgating.  All are available at Sam’s Club, so you can one stop shop and have everything you need.


Portable Stainless Steel Grill – Being able to take your grill on the go is a definite plus. The Sportsman Series Portable Gas Grill offers 2 burners, 272 sq feet of cooking space, a cover and legs that fold.  At just under $100, you will definitely get your money’s worth if you tailgate a lot.


Food – Tailgating is all about the food.  Create your favorite dip with Hormel Chili, and Kraft Velveeta Cheese.  Grab a bag of skittles as a treat during the game to share with your friends.  Settle in with an ice cold Coke and enjoy the game.  Pick up a cooler, paper plates and cutlery to serve your food.

Chairs & Canopy – Don’t forget chairs and a canopy to rest those legs and keep out of the sun.  It will make for a more enjoyable experience for everyone


Samsung Tab S Tablet – Never miss another play or update as you can take this tablet on the go.  It’s equipped with a 16GB hard drive bluetooth and a camera.  Take pictures and stay involved on all sorts of action!  It’s incredibly thin and light as well.
