Get Your Frozen Food and Baking Coupons Ready
Posted on Thursday, September 17th, 2009 at 11:37 am
Baking goods being on sale before the holidays make sense. After all, there is all of those pies and cookies to be made. Many people save their baking for holidays times only, but even if you don’t you’ll want to start stockpiling things such as flour, sugar, pie fillings, refrigerated pie crusts, refrigerated breadsticks, etc.
Frozen foods will also be in demand for two or maybe three reasons. Frozen foods can often make cooking those big elaborate family meals much easier than cooking everything from fresh or from scratch. People also like to keep frozen foods on hand during the busy holiday season, so they can have something quick to prepare for dinner before heading out for parties and shopping. And the third reason is that having frozen food on hand means that you won’t have to run out to the store in the middle of that blizzard or cold weather.
With these things in mind, you should take the next couple of weeks to really organize and gather your coupons for baking supplies and frozen foods. Sign up for coupon booklets and newsletters (such as the Betty Crocker newsletter) and get your printable coupons ready. Make sure to buy your Sunday paper for the inserts (or get them in other ways, such as asking your neighbors).
With your coupons in hand, you can match them against the grocery store sales to get the best deals!
Also, pay attention to restaurant deals and online grocery deals. Restaurant.com had an unprecedented 90 percent off recently. I don’t know if this will come around again, but if it does, be sure to grab it. Here are some current coupons and deals for online groceries that I have posted.
