Getting Ready for The Big Game #GameDayTraditions8:30 PM

I will admit to not being the biggest of football fans. However, being a mom of four boys and a daughter and sister to a football watching obsessed family, it was bound to catch up with me sooner or later. While you still won't find me in front of the TV cheering on my favorite team, you will find me enjoying the Big Game. Why? Because I love the togetherness that football brings to our family, and planning football parties for my friends and family to enjoy!
When it comes to football games, and The Big Game in particular, we have a few game day traditions we like to keep. First and foremost is the people! We always like to have the ones we love most around us. For me, this includes my boys, my mom and if they are in town, my sister and brother as well as their kids too. However, when you have a home that holds four boys, five dogs and two cats, there is a certain degree of preparation you have to take in order to get ready for company. That is where great P&G products come into play. I always stop by our local Walmart to stock up before our football parties!
Febreze Air Effects Linen and Sky helps to eliminate tough odors instead of just covering them up, and is safe enough to spray on the couch and chairs to freshen things up and take away any trace of the pets. I always make sure the bathrooms are stocked with Charmin Ultra Strong Mega Rolls 12-Packs too. Four boys and plenty of heavy greasy food means that our bathroom is sure to get a workout during The Big Game and Charmin Ultra Strong is 4x's stronger than the bargain brand meaning we use less and save more.
Of course, what is a football party without the food. The food we serve is another of our game day traditions. I love getting creative and making football-inspired centerpieces, as well as throwing in the typical game day food like wings, dips, chips and of course, cookies. With all that good food comes messes to clean up though. Bounty Select-A-Size paper towels are strong enough to clean up messes of any size. The unique trap and lock technology quickly absorbs messes so that cleanup from your party is quick and easy.
After the game is done and the boys are headed off to bed, there is plenty of laundry to do from the day. From stained shirts to tablecloths and dish towels, Tide PODS are my detergent of choice for removing those tough food stains. Tide PODS are a 3 in 1 detergent, stain remover and brightener that gets clothes up to 6x's cleaner than other detergents alone.
You don't have to be a huge fan of the Big Game to have game day traditions and enjoy the time together with your family.
