Happy New Year and happy January to everyone!
Whether you're learning to coupon for 2017, returning to couponing after a break, or have been couponing for awhile, the new year is a TERRIFIC time for deals in the grocery store.
We historically see great prices in January on a variety of items, as stores don't want customers to stop shopping after their Christmas bills come in!
So it's important to know what items we'll be expecting to see on sale at your favorite grocery stores this month (especially if those Christmas bills were higher than expected.)
That means this is the perfect time to repost my list of month by month sales cycles!
After all, the whole point of building and maintaining a stockpile is buying items your family needs at their lowest sale price -- and buying enough so your supply can last until the sale rolls around again.
Click here for a month-by-month breakdown so you know when you can expect to see great prices on general grocery categories!
That list covers everything from OTC meds to frozen pizza to the best time to stock up on razors, so I recommend saving it to your phone for reference throughout the year.
And if you just need to know what the best deals we'll see in January, here are my top picks:
- Weight loss brands (like Special K, Lean Cuisine, etc)
- Vitamins and supplements
- Oatmeal and hot breakfast items
- Cold & flu OTC meds
- Kleenex and other paper products
- Frozen foods
- Canned goods (especially canned soups and canned vegetables)
- Soda and snack foods (second half of January as we approach Super Bowl time!)
