How to Save: Yearly Sales Cycles

how to save yearly sales cycyles

Besides a grocery store sale cycle, are there times of the year when certain items are on sale?

Absolutely! Grocery stores are smart. They know that there are certain times of the year when shoppers are keying in on specific goods and they want to grab as much of your business as they possibly can. So why not offer a great price on something they already know you’ll be looking for? When you think about it, it’s a fantastic idea. Cookout supplies around the 4th of July, baking staples during the holidays and even candy on Halloween.

It’s all about anticipation. In this case, the anticipation of shopping habits. The store knows from experience, and shopping trends, when different items will peak throughout the year.  By matching their best prices to times of peak demand they stand a better chance of bringing shoppers through the door and earning their business.

This is a cycle you can work to your advantage! By staying on top of what items tend to go on sale during certain times of the year, you can stock up and save your family impressive amounts of money. Right now try focusing on those key items you’ll soon be tossing into lunchboxes day after day. Things like pudding cups, fruit snacks and Lunchables can be expensive, so buy when the time is right and have them ready and waiting when you need them most. Also, keep track as to which of these items can be frozen. Things like lunchmeat freeze great, making it easy to take advantage of a good sale when you find one.

Another thing to keep track of is produce. Fruits and vegetables are at their peak at different times of the year. If you can buy when the market is flooded, and then either can or freeze your produce, you have the chance to save money while still offering healthy options for your family.

Right now August is upon us and that can only mean one thing…..back to school! With that in mind let’s take a look at a few items that always tend to be on sale this time of year.

Sales to Watch for During Back to School:

School Supplies

  • Pencils, Crayons, Markers, Scissors, Rulers, Folders, Glue, Paper, Notebooks & Other School Supplies

Breakfast Items/School Lunches

  • Pudding Cups, Lunch Meat, Lunchables, Bread, Cold Cereal, Waffles, Juice Boxes

Couponing is a great way to save money!  Whether you save 5%, 15% or 50% you are still saving your family money.  Having a hard time getting started?  Buy my new book, “Couponing for the Rest of Us” on Amazon in paperback or Kindle.  You can even read the first chapter online FREE!
