I've been thinking about the same thing, as I have four potluck picnics (we don't call it BBQ here unless you are actually smoking meat) next weekend. I agree with a lot of what is in that article, burgers, hot dogs, brats, are all pretty cheap eats for a crowd and can be purchased ahead on sale and frozen. I'm eyeing a bag of chicken quarters on sale for .39/lb this week. They are good on the grill or the smoker, and can even be made into fried chicken. I've also got several boxes of brownie mix in the pantry, bought on sale, of course.
Our crowd does a lot of potlucks, which spreads the cost. There's always too much food. People bring large amounts not considering that others will usually take a smaller portion than usual, because of the many choices. So I never feel bad about taking a single small dish. It gets eaten and I go home with a clean plate.
Finally, if you feel you can't afford to contribute food, consider volunteering to help the hosts with clean up afterward. It is much appreciated and you could even end up with leftovers others have left behind.Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.
If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.
