Get your tailgating essentials at Sam’s Club!

Thank you to Sam’s Club for sponsoring today’s post and helping me get ready for tailgating this Football Season.


Now, without naming any names, I live in Seattle, so obviously we have a pretty popular football team here. AND I also went to college in Columbus OH, and I hear they have a team there too. (Can’t play favorites, now, can we?) Whether I am watching an NFL or College game, Sam’s Club has ALL of my tailgating essentials.

Must have tailgating essentials

Every good home tailgating party starts with a flat screen TV, and not just any tv but how about the 65″ Samsung LED 1080p 3D Smart HDTV?! It will be like being at the game!

Now that you have a great TV, you need fantastic sound. Don’t miss a single commentary with the Samsung 2.1 Channel 290 Watt Soundbar w/ Subwoofer. Pick it up with your new TV at Sam’s Club.

Are you or one of your friends the kind of people that like to check stats on a second screen while watching the big game? The Samsung Tab S Tablet is perfect for checking stats or joining in the chatter on social media without taking away from your game experience.

With watching the game taken care of, it’s time to think about snacks!

Tailgating Essentials

Like Hormel® Chili No Beans  which you can top with Kraft Velvetta  – throw it in your Wolfgang Puck slow cooker the morning of the game and you’ll be ready to go by the first snap.

While you’re at Sam’s Club, don’t forget to pick up a Portable Stainless Steel Gas Grill and some steak and chicken. Marinate those with KC Masterpiece or Hidden Valley Ranch and food is covered. Not a bad idea to have some of your favorite beverages of choice on hand either.

and since I’m in Seattle, it goes without saying you need to pick up a big bag of Skittles!

  1. I live in the land that everyone is Razorback Red! Tailgating is not done just for fun, it is serious business! Love your tips!

  2. I love shopping at Sam’s. I love getting enough to feed my large family.

  3. Our tailgating essentials are the goodies to make sweet BBQ’d little smokies!!! Those are our favorites. Then of course, we gotta have some candy. My husband is dying for a big screen TV. I’d love to surprise him with one for Christmas!! I gotta check Sam’s Club out this year.

  4. Melissa Vera says:

    We don’t tailgate at football game however we do for soccer matches. I will have to say we don’t have an essential just plenty of food.

  5. We love Sam’s Club! They have tons of great foods and drinks that are perfect for tailgating and yeah, we might have that big old TV on our wish list too;-)

  6. Love your tailgating finds and recommendations!
