Get Those Holiday Loss Leaders
Grocery retailers will be featuring loss-leaders on many of the trimmings for your Thanksgiving meal. This means they put a lot of food items on sale, to lure you into their grocery chain store for shopping.
There is a lot of competition for stores to capture your grocery dollars. And having sales is a way to get you to visit their store. Grocers are even willing to take a loss on some grocery items like the turkey, so you will shop with them. So keep your eyes peeled and when the price drops, stock up.
You can even stock up on items you will use all year long, not just for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Stock ups are a way for many families to capture savings on grocery items, so take advantage of this time of year. You just may discover some killer grocery deals.
Using a Freezer for Thanksgiving Deals
If you don’t have a stand-alone freezer, this might be a good time to buy one. Our freezer has been one of the greatest money-saving tools we’ve ever bought.
When our family was small (just one child) we bought our first 9-cubic-foot freezer, used, from a friend. We now have a 27-cubic-foot freezer that we use as a bank vault to store our valuable food deals.
