Grocery Items to Stockpile During Holiday Sales

  Starting in November, grocery stores will put holiday grocery items on sale at the lowest price of the year. These are items that can be used all year and not just during the holiday season so it only makes sense to take advantage of the rock bottom prices to stock your pantry. These items normally go on sale twice per year, once in  November/December and then again in the Spring around March/April for Easter.

  This means that in order to save the most money you should be stockpiling these items during each sales cycle (if you have the space). In order to do this you will need to think ahead a little bit. Take a little time to figure out how much you need per month per item and multiply that by 6 which will equal your 6 month supply total. So if you go through one 5lb bag of flour per month, then you will need to purchase 6 bags of flour to last until the next sale in the Spring.

In order to save even more money, you may consider clipping coupons that go along with sales or taking advantage of rebate apps such as IBOTTA where you can get cash back on grocery purchases.

Below is a list of the items that you should be stocking up on. Things like butter, chocolate chips, turkey and even diced onions can be frozen and kept for months. I’m not including prices to look for because of rapid inflation, it’s just hard to keep up with the current prices. It’s a good idea to create a price book of the lowest prices that you see in your area, so you know when to stock up and make the best use of your grocery budget.
