What’s the best way to save money while using coupons? Shop in cycles! :)

Shop in cycles, you ask? Yes, Grocery Sales Cycles!

Everyone knows that produce is seasonal. If you want to make a batch of peach jam, the best time of year is during the summer, when the fruit is in season and at its lowest price. Did you know packaged and canned foods are seasonal too just like produce? It’s true!

When’s the best time to stock up on baking supplies? Fall & Spring (Thanksgiving & Easter). Two major times of the year, most people do a lot of baking.

How about BBQ sauce or condiments? Summer time, of course! Between Memorial & Labor Day! Would you rather pay $4.00 for a bottle of BBQ sauce in January or grab one from your stockpile knowing you only paid $0.50 for that bottle? Stockpile please! :)

Understanding the grocery sales cycle is one of the best ways to save your family money. This will help you know when to stock up on certain “in season” items and when to hold back on purchasing.

The idea is to create a stockpile. Yes, I said stockpile! I know what you’re thinking…. this is NOT hording, or for a zombie apocalypse. :) Just a stockpile that will last you 3-12 months or until the product reaches its lowest price again.

Matching these sale cycles with coupons is when you can save a TON of money and stock-up on the products your family needs at rock bottom prices. Here are bargains you’re likely to find this month.

Easter egg hunt smart phone

Easter Egg Hunt for Older Kids – Using a Smart Phone!!

Smart-Phone-Egg-Hunt

Smart Phone Easter Egg Hunt for Older Kids

 

Easter is this weekend (gasp), I wanted to share this AWESOME Easter egg hunt idea with you! My kids are older (13,15 & 18). The annual Easter egg hunt is loosing it’s “pizzazz”. You know, it’s kind of for “little kids”.

Well, have no fear! Here’s new way to keep them “in the hunt”, so to speak. 😉 Combining the old fashion Easter Egg hunt with a Smart phone and QR codes. Brilliant! I’ve done this for my kids for the last three years and they just LOVE it! Best part? It won’t cost you a dime!

There are two ways to do this Easter egg hunt.  #1 – Treasure hunt style. (One egg leads you to the next egg and so on).  or   #2 – Check off list style. (Give them a print out of the list of clues that they can find in any order).

We did “Tresure Hunt Style” which in the end, led the kids to their Easter baskets.  🙂 Super fun!

 

CLICK HERE for all the information and printables to get started.

Then get ready to accept the “Cool Mom/Dad” award! 😉

What’s on Sale in January!

January

 

 

What’s the best way to save money while using coupons? Shop in cycles! :)

Shop in cycles, you ask? Yes, Grocery Sales Cycles!

Everyone knows that produce is seasonal. If you want to make a batch of peach jam, the best time of year is during the summer, when the fruit is in season and at its lowest price. Did you know packaged and canned foods are seasonal too just like produce? It’s true!

When’s the best time to stock up on baking supplies? Fall & Spring (Thanksgiving & Easter). Two major times of the year, most people do a lot of baking.

How about BBQ sauce or condiments? Summer time, of course! Between Memorial & Labor Day! Would you rather pay $4.00 for a bottle of BBQ sauce in January or grab one from your stockpile knowing you only paid $0.50 for that bottle? Stockpile please! :)

Understanding the grocery sales cycle is one of the best ways to save your family money. This will help you know when to stock up on certain “in season” items and when to hold back on purchasing.

The idea is to create a stockpile. Yes, I said stockpile! I know what you’re thinking…. this is NOT hording, or for a zombie apocalypse. :) Just a stockpile that will last you 3-12 months or until the product reaches its lowest price again.

Matching these sale cycles with coupons is when you can save a TON of money and stock-up on the products your family needs at rock bottom prices. Here are bargains you’re likely to find this month.
