Frugal Super Bowl Party Food | By Your Payday Loan Source

Pigging out over pigskin?

Whether you’re a football fan or simply a follower of great spectacle, your payday loan source understands that going all-out for a Super Bowl party may not be in the Cards this year (sorry, Arizona).

Thankfully, the Kentucky Post has a few great ideas for a “Super Bowl Party Menu Under $50.” At these prices, you can save that quick payday loan for your next emergency cash situation.
