March is the 30th annual National Frozen Food Month. Now is an excellent time to stock up on the frozen foods that your family loves. There will be sales, coupons, and even some sweepstakes going on. Here are a few tips that can help you save the most in Frozen Foods Month..
How to Save During Frozen Foods Month
How much room is there in your freezer right now? If it is already stuffed full with a stock pile of frozen foods then you may have a problem. Buying more will make it difficult, if not impossible, to properly store it. In this situation, it is best to stick to buying just a few boxes of the frozen foods that your family goes through the fastest.
Is your freezer empty? Take a close look at it. You don’t want to end up overestimating how much it can hold. Smaller shopping trips, scattered across the month of March, may be useful for preventing an overflowing freezer.
Frugal shoppers know that using coupons is a great way to save money on groceries! Browse through your favorite coupon website and print out the ones for frozen food products. Shop at the grocery store that you have a customer loyalty card with in order to maximize your savings. Don’t forget to look on the back of the grocery receipt for more coupons! Now is a good time to sign up with companies that send coupons for frozen food products through email.
Those bags of frozen vegetables need to get eaten. What are you going to do with them all? Start planning the meals that your family will eat this month. Pair a frozen veggie with a main course. Corn on the cob goes nicely with hamburgers. Frozen broccoli is a nice addition to a stir fry. Having a busy morning? Frozen waffles to the rescue! With careful planning, you can avoid having to spend money on fresh vegetables (that are often more expensive than the frozen ones).
Check Social Media
Companies that make frozen foods are likely to participate in National Frozen Food Month through their social media accounts. Look for the brands that your family enjoys. “Like” them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, see if they are on Pinterest. This is a good way to stay informed about their latest coupons, special deals, and whatever sweepstakes or contests they are holding in March. Stay connected after March is over for more savings!
