Let’s just face it, when entertaining family and friends, holiday shopping can be tight on the household budget. This is a great week to take advantage of some of the sales to plan for those special events.

Each store is having special events sales that can match up to great appetizers and meals. Kroger has its buy five on selected items and save $5. Walgreens and CVS have gift cards that offer $10 store reward money.

Food City has several great sales this week, starting with the $5 Friday sale. This will include the Pick 5 sale of $14.99 for meat, produce and frozen food. Additionally, Food City has several items priced for $5. This includes russet potatoes in a 15 pound bag, vegetable or fruit trays. View the sale ads from The Daily Times for additional listings. Also, throughout the week they will have a mix and match 12 items for $10.

On the sad note, Sears has started its store closing sales with reduced prices ranging from 30 to 40 percent. Additionally, they have fixtures on sale for those who need items for storage. As for the legendary Craftsmen tools, they are discounted currently at 10 percent.

For those continuing with the saving program 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 49th week of the year. Place $49 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $1,225 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
