As we observe the Fourth of July with our family and friends today, there are a few extra savings to keep in mind. Additionally, this will be a great time to stock up on meat sales, especially after the holiday.

Some of the easiest things to purchase this week are paper plates, bowls, tableware, napkins and cups. At Walgreens this week, the items are buy one and get one free; use the coupon listed below.

For those parents who will have college students starting school in the next few weeks, you also will want to take advantage of these sale events, too. Additionally, if you are like me and have a home office, this is a good time to replenish your office supplies.

Walmart you will have several college items on sale, including a compact refrigerator for $59 and a twin memory foam mattress for $129.
