Weíve talked before about how products at supermarkets tend to follow a 12 week sale cycle.
Youíll notice that products may hit their lowest prices during the times of year when we may be buying them most.
For example, we just got done with the holiday season, so you probably saw all kinds of deals on baking items, chips, crackers, etc. These are items you were probably looking to buy during the past few weeks. In the fall, there were all kinds of back to school specials. In the spring, look for your cleaning products to be on sale.
Remember itís during these times when you want to stock up on items so youíre not paying a lot more later in the year.
Month by Month SalesOn www.jillcataldo.com I found the following list of items for the year and when they typically go on sale and reach their lowest price. This will also be a good guide as we start 2012.
Stock up Price ListIíve included a link from The Krazy Coupon Lady which can give you some ideas on what a good price is for certain items. In my area, I donít know if Iíve seen products as low as the prices she has, but this chart is still helpful.
Bargain BuysYouíve probably noticed the past week or so that stores by you are running special sales or extended sales with their flyers. Expect this to continue until after the first of the year. Also, now is the time to stock up for next year on Christmas items such as decorations, wrapping supplies, & paper products. I was out shopping yesterday and was surprised at how picked over a lot of stores were already. I did get a few good deals though!
