Store sales are still strong for Family Meals Month, and with a little planning the meat and produce sales will help keep the grocery cost down.

Additionally, for those who are on a tight budget, laundry detergent sales are as low as 88 cents at Walgreens. Keeping the theme for home-cooked meals, several stores have fresh produce for under $1 a pound, and this includes chicken.

While pricing the sales for you this week, I did see stores still having clearance available. Take advantage of those sales for birthdays and holidays.

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 38th week of the year. Place $38 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $741 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
