The time is right to start planning for the holidays meals.

This week the sales prices are deep and budget friendly.

My recommendation is stock up on canned goods for several months.

For those that are on a tight budget canned tomatoes, vegetables and pasta can feed a family for dollars a day.

Kroger has a Baby Promo. Spend $40 after coupons and save $10. This includes Qtips $2.49, formula, toddler food, snacks, Dove baby, Aquaphor baby and Aveeno baby.

Use the baby coupons to expand the value.

Remember, as you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money saving plan.

This is the 45th week of the year. Place $45 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $1,035 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
