It's football season!  Starting off the night early with a tailgate add even more fun to the night. Before heading down to the game, here are some tailgate hacks to make the most of your night out.

  • If you don't have a cooler, don't fret. You can turn a case of beer into an instant cooler with this hack. Start by emptying out the case of beer and line it with two large shopping bags or kitchen sized garbage bags. Then put the drinks back in and top off with lots of ice. 
  • If you are packing a cooler full of drinks, label the top so that everyone can easily find their drinks without having to fish through ice. So put beer on one side and soda on the other and put a label on the lid of the cooler. 
  • You'll never have to worry about losing your car with this hack. Tie a large helium balloon on an extra-long string to your car. So even if you feel like your car is lost in the crowd, you and your friends will easily be able to spot your vehicle.
  • If you don't have a grill but you still want to bring warm food, you can use your cooler to heat your food-yes, your cooler. Start by lining the bottom of your cooler with aluminum foil as well as a few bricks you warm in your oven. Toss the foil lined bricks into the cooler and place your food inside the cooler. In just a few minutes, you'll have hot and delicious food for your tailgate. 
  • Bugs bothering you and your friends? Don't let the bugs get into your drinks by taking a cupcake liner, flipping it upside down, place it over your cup, and poke a straw through the cupcake liner-you have an instant lid and a bug-free drink.
  • If you are serving food like hamburgers or hot dogs, keep all of the condiments inside muffin tins. It keeps everything contained and will make clean up a breeze. 
  • Be sure to pack a large plastic bin with a lid so when you are done with all of your containers, dishes, and silverware, you can toss everything into the bin, add warm soapy water, and wash everything at once.
